The Beaugrenelle Shopping Mall | 15th arrondissement

Published by Oat Sitalasai — 5 years ago

Paris is well-known for spoiling its inhabitants with uncountable shopping spots. If you are by accident near the 15th arrondissement, not too far from the Eiffel Tower, you may be interested in stopping by the 12 rue de Linois "Beaugrenelle shopping centre".

There is easy access by metro. The station you will need to exit at is Charles Michel, on the yellow line 10. If you are closer to the RER, there is a station called Javel on RER line C, which is about ten minutes' walk from the mall. If you have a car parking facilities are also at your disposal. If you know where the famous Parisian Statue of Liberty is you can also go from there, the mall being virtually across the street from it.

The Beaugrenelle provides a wide variety of leisure facilities besides a shopping center. There is a cinema Pathé, very convenient for those living in the neighbourhood. There is a good choice of movies, however not as much as in cinemas at the Champs-Élysées or in the area of the Centre de Pompidou. The facilities of this cinema nevertheless remain top-notch.

There are plenty of shops and shop windows. The Beaugrenelle is composed of two buildings to ensure the best shopping experience for everyone. The most renowned shops include H&M, Zara, Hollister, Adidas, Nike, Michael Kors, Celio, Uniqlo and many other brands. You can also find electrical appliances for your house as well as other types of electrical equipment. The two major stores in this field are Darty on the ground floor and, of course, the well-known FNAC, located on the uppermost level. Now that sales have started it is the right time to pay a visit to this mall.

We all know what a draining experience shopping can be. You can recharge your batteries in the restaurants and eateries of the complex, most of whom are located in the same building as the cinema. You can choose within a range of various types of food, from Asian or Italian cuisine to a hip and easy burger joint or a Mexican chipotle restaurant, with a few more other alternatives. If you look for lighter and cold or hot meals (sandwiches, soups, salads, pasta), you can go to Cojean on the ground floor. Those who have a sweet tooth like me will also be happy to know that there is a Hagen Daaz just next to the cinema. An English Parisian bar on the ground floor, The Parisian Pub, is another good place to eat and drink and also to watch sporting events (mainly football). The service is casual and relaxed. The staff are very nice and it is a great place, generally speaking, to just have a drink and relax.

If you cross the street; all the connecting bridge are accessible from the uppermost level; you enjoy a wider variety of cafes, ice creams and light snacks. You can also go to Eric Kayser Artisan Boulangerie Paris, which is located at the end of the building with Exki just right across from it. Personally, I like Exki because of its awesome interior. The staff here are super friendly too and you can choose hot soups, pizzas and light meals here as well. It is very similar to Cojean! I would say that Exki is slightly cheaper, but with more choices. Oh and by the way, there is free Wifi throughout the building! I also have to add that it works better in Exki than in Cojean. If you are into a cup of coffee with milk, you can go for the "lungo macchiato" there, which is basically a small cup of latte for only 1. 80 euro! In my opinion, this place holds the record for the best value for money in Paris.

If you come to Beaugrenelle wearing a fancy outfit, you can try heading for Eclectic, a cafe/bar/restaurant right at the entrance of the building on the ground floor. It looks classy from the outside and I am sure it is the same as the inside. You can probably enjoy a finer cuisine here than in the other places of the mall, but if I ever went there I would ask for a drink. Drinks look indeed very tasty, judging by the appealing bar display visible from the entrance.

Although not really related to the Beaugrenelle itself, there are a few Italian restaurants further down the road just on the doorstep of Charles Michel station. There are also a McDonalds and a Starbucks for those who want to stick with something they know! I would also like to point out that there is a Monoprix next to the mall. Although I do not think most you would shop for food there, you need to know that you can buy really tasty and cheap pastries and sweets there! They have a small bakery on the ground level, in which you can find the same food standard and choice as in any other bakery, but at a much lower price. You can also grab a sandwich, a drink and a pastry there if you are running out of time.

In a nutshell, I enjoy the Beaugrenelle for many reasons. I love its location and its great accessibility, and I also love the countless choices I enjoy here between cafes or restaurants. The complimentary wifi is a major asset, though its efficiency varies depending on your location in the building. Since it is the only indoor shopping spot in the area, the Beaugrenelle is very crowded at the weekend. On top of this mall, there are shopping streets at the metro stations Commerce (Line 8 purple), La Motte Picquet-Grenelle (Line 8 purple, Line 6 green and Line 10 yellow) and Avenue Émile Zola (Line 10 yellow). I will end now with the link of the mall’s website for further information as well as the opening hours, which are important!
