Why you will love it?

There are plenty of bookstores around the Latin Quarter, an area known for its rich academia and intelligentsia, but how can you decide when there are so many options? If you are looking for an intimate bookshop--one where you could easily curl up with a book for hours, with charm and a truly unique identity, look no further than Shakespeare and Company, just across the Seine from Notre Dame. Enjoy! Parisianist

Our Insiders' Article

Shakespeare & Co

Paris is certainly the right place to be if you are searching for old-world charm, and Shakespeare and Company is the pinnacle of it. The vast expanse of books--old and new--will not disappoint even the biggest of bookworms. It is as quaint as you can get, with books stacked to the ceiling in each room and an upstairs that offers places to sit and read. In one of the rooms upstairs, there is an amazing view of Notre Dame from the window, and you might even be able to cuddle up with the resident cat!

Parisianist Fun Fact: the first scene in the movie Before Sunset was shot in Shakespeare & Co.

History

This historic book nook was founded by an American named George Whitman in 1951, who originally named it “Le Mistral.” He changed the name to Shakespeare and Company in April 1964 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and after the original Shakespeare and Company founded by Sylvia Beach in 1919 on rue Odéon, which was a haven for many famous expat authors of the time. This shop has also hosted well-known authors like Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller.

Parisianist Fun Fact: It is possible to “tumbleweed” here: you can actually spend a night for free in the bookstore as long as you help out in the shop during the day!
