Shakespeare & Company
37, Rue Bûcherie, 75005
A bookstore with a hodgepodge of books shoved into shelves in a entirely unorganized manner. Opened by Sylvia Beech in 1919, Shakespeare & Co. was the first English language bookstore in Paris and its apartments above were a haven for bohemian expats. The bookstore’s reputation still holds true as it still offers rooms for writers from abroad in return for helping out. You can contact them for more info (telephone: 01 43 25 40 93).
