Cultural Shopping

Take a walk through a shopping arcade that would put any American mall to shame. Built in 1847, the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert predate some of Europe’s most famed shopping arcades. Ornate 19th-century Parisian architecture houses clothing boutiques, jewelry stores, chocolate shops, art galleries, and more. Look for the Vaudeville Theater, which debuted dancers such as America’s own Josephine Baker and still presents vaudeville acts and other live performances. The Galeries are also home to the Théâtre des Galeries (opened in 1947), a photo gallery, and the Galeries Expo (an innovative modern image museum of sorts). Split into three sections—the Galeries du Roi (King’s Gallery), the Galerie de la Reine (Queen’s Gallery) and the Galerie du Prince (Prince’s Gallery)—the arcade is extensive and continuously beautiful.
