Neighbourhood Guide | rue Saint-Sébastien

As there are only so many arrondissements we can write neighbourhood guides about, we decided to continue the theme, but more specifically with some of our favourite streets in Paris. Last month Samara started us off with the wonderful rue Henri Monnier in the 9ème. This week’s choice is rue Saint-Sébastien in the 11ème. For those of you who have ventured down this road, then you’ll understand why we’ve chosen to write about it. Spoilt for choice by cafes, boutiques, old record shops & delicious Asian cuisine, please allow us to take you......

Paris is one of those cities where there is so much going on and so much to see in all the neighborhoods that, naturally, there are some areas that get overlooked.
