As temperatures drop and you know what lingers, Netflix’s light-hearted new comedy-drama series Emily in Paris is like a much-needed hug. Released at the start of October, we’ve already binged all ten episodes about young marketing exec Emily’s (Lily Collins) adventures in the City of Light after being transferred from her Chicago office. Created by Darren Star, the mastermind behind Sex And The City, the lewks are as excellent as you’d hope for—hello white scalloped ankle boots, red berets, and a jaw-dropping strapless black gown for the opera.

Critics have been, well, critical of the French stereotypes—Gabriel as the hot neighbor, Sylvie as the chain-smoking older boss, and the snooty shop assistants. And yet despite the cliches, Emily in Paris is somehow exactly what we need right now: pure, blissful escapism.

And anyway, Paris is the real star of the show. While you might not feel inclined to hop on a Eurostar right now (or perhaps you do!), we’ll soon be heading to the capital quicker than you can say "bonjour."

Emily In Paris filming locations

Sightseeing

First off, Emily’s old-yet-characterful apartment on the fifth (not fourth) floor lies on Place d L’Estrapade Square in the 5th arrondissement.

Close by is Jardin du Luxembourg where Emily goes for her early morning jogs. It’s a 25-hectare park with gardens, fountains and ponds, and a gorgeous pavilion—definitely a great spot for a picnic in the summer.

Her new office lies above Galerie Patrick Fourtin in Place de Valois, close to Jardin Du Palais Royale, another stunning park where she meets new bestie Mindy (Ashley Park)—a nanny who speaks fluent English and knows her way around the city.

The scene where the model walks naked on a bridge as part of a controversial new ad campaign is at Pont Alexandre III, one of the most magnificent bridges in Paris. It's always worth taking a stroll across for the ‘gram.

One of the most memorable locations in the series is Palais Garnier where Emily hotfoots to the ballet (wearing that black dress and sky-high heels) with high brow Thomas. She quickly discovers he’s a total snob who doesn’t want to watch Swan Lake while she tries to woo a fashion client so, after giving him the finger, she gets the client and enjoys the ballet. Win-win.

Atelier des Lumières

Emily and her pals also visit a digital exhibition at Atelier des Lumières—an immersive look at Vincent van Gogh's work. It's 35-minute light and sound show featuring over 2000 moving pictures, and yeah, it looks pretty cool.

Eating & Drinking

Boulangerie Moderne by Thierry Rabineau

For pain au chocolat that will make you "petite mort," hit up this artisanal bakery on Rue Des Fosses Saint Jacques. So good, Emily even cuts short her beloved morning run to taste the goods.

Le Maison Rose

Set in hip Montmartre, Emily and Mindy eat at a table on the pavement outside this gorgeous little pink-walled, green-shuttered corner restaurant. It trades on its reputation for fresh, seasonal food like salmon in garlic saffron aioli and cheesecake with seasonal fruits, and it's a total find for food, setting, and ambiance.

Café de Flore

One of the most famous cafes in the city, this Art Deco beauty is where Emily quietly knocks back in and people-watches with intellectual love interest Thomas. You’ll find it at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and you might also be interested to know it was a gathering spot for artists and writers in the 30s and 40s, like Picasso and Simone de Beauvoir. There are still philosophy debates there on occasion.

Les Deux Comperes

When she can’t get a table at Le Grand Véfour, Emily thinks on her feet and begs chef neighbor Gabriel to open his restaurant after hours for an exclusive dinner. It’s called Les Deux Comperes in the series, but in real life, it’s actually Italian bistro Terra Nera.

Le Grand Véfour

The Michelin-starred, high-end restaurant Emily tries and fails to get a reservation for is worth a visit if you have the time and money. It dates back to the 18th century, has red banquets, gold leaf, and foie gras on the menu.

Ahh, get us to Paris already.
