Passage Molière

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Passage Molière

One of Paris' quietest passages is named after the famous 17th century French playwright, Molière. At one time the Théâtre Molière was located there and many of his plays were performed on its stage. The theatre is now known as La Maison de la Poésie and continues to host various cultural events. The Espace Alaph, a paradise of cinema buffs, is also located there. It would be hard to find such a select collection of rare cinema posters and publications anywhere. Right next door is the Jean Bernard wine bar, where little tables covered with red and white tablecloths are placed outside on the passage's cobblestones on warmer days. The Passage Molière is only 45 metres long - a small picturesque oasis with brightly painted historical shop façades and a seeming artistic carelessness, but where every detail has actually been carefully considered. Take the bright pink chair with a verdant flower pot placed on top of it by the white façade of a little shop. One of the most exclusive residents of the passage is the Tamano shoe shop, owned by a Japanese shoe designer who lives in Paris. She makes shoes on order for her customers. At the entrance of the passage there is the Galerie Quinchampoi, offering both contemporary and historical ceramics objects from a variety of famous manufacturers. Exhibitions are also held there every so often.

161, rue Saint-Martin
