Pullman Paris Bercy

Bercy was once a major center for the wine trade and with its 18th century warehouses on the banks of the Seine, it still has a village feel today. For Margaux Mary, one of the Welcomers at the Pullman Paris Bercy hotel, this is what gives the neighbourhood its unique 'buzz' and makes is special.

Margaux Mary, Welcomer, Pullman Paris Bercy Margaux Mary, Welcomer, Pullman Paris Bercy

Welcomer Margaux Mary, knows this neighbourhood like the back of her hand, and she keeps a close eye on Figaroscope,
the Guide du Fooding and of course the Michelin Guide for the latest new restaurant or unmissable exhibition

"This is a little oasis of calm, where you can take your time while you to do some shopping or check out the wine stores.
Yet the bustling streets are just 10 minutes away on line 14...".

The Bercy Village shops stay open till 10 at night (not often seen in Paris), the restaurants are open late, exhibitions are held all year round, and where better for a stroll or picnic than the 14 hectares of the Parc de Bercy?

Boco
Margaux also recommends Boco, "This is a totally new idea; real French chefs - actual chefs - preparing their dishes in jars (bocaux). Delicious, and great value: 15 euros for a main course, entrée and dessert!”
