Door of the Month: 61 & 77 Rue Charlot

By Eyepreferparis88 @eyepreferparis


I am back to a new fresh start after my blogging break last week.
It’s Door of the Month double-header today. Both doors are on the rue Charlot, a street with trendy boutiques and restaurants in the Northern/Haute Marais/NORMA.
I love the first door at # 61 because it’s unique, like no other I have seen before with its iron spider web. There’s a trendy Italian-French organic restaurant Marcovaldo, which takes its name from an Italo Colvino novel.
Next up is a door at #77 with a sign in bold graphics HENRI GROUT, CARTONNAGE ARTISTIQUE (artistic carton manufacturing).
61 & 77 rue Charlot, 75003
Metro: Filles-Calvaire
