Palais Royal maintains a low-key atmosphere amid its regal surroundings. Informal brasseries, boulangeries, wine bars, and ateliers contrast Palais Royal’s majestic gardens and tranquil waterscapes. As a quiet retreat in the center of the city, Palais Royal succeeds valiantly—it's common to see smartly dressed gentlemen occupying well-placed benches within the grounds’ otherworldly opulence. When it comes to being an epicenter of high-class yet casual culture, Palais Royal is king.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
