Lane Nieset, author of The Best Digital Nomad Neighborhoods in Paris, shares her favorite places in the city of lights for digital nomads and remote workers in Paris.

The Best Restaurants in Paris for Digital Nomads

Café de Flore: The iconic cafe once drew the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Jean-Paul Sartre—as well as fashion designers like Karl Lagerfeld—and its terrace is still one of the best spots for people-watching today.

Avant Comptoir du Marché: Located in the Marché Saint-Germain, the latest Avant Comptoir has the kind of energy you would expect at a market in Barcelona. Expect to stand or hover by the bar, and share a selection of the 60-plus small plates and wine.

Freddy’s: Simply calling Freddy’s a wine bar doesn’t do the cuisine justice. The narrow space is one of the local go-tos for after-work drinks and dinner, and the shareable dishes range from simple charcuterie and terrine to Japanese wood charcoal-grilled vegetables and miso-glazed salmon.

Racines: Helmed by a Sardinian chef, the Michelin-starred restaurant tucked away in Passage des Panoramas is a Parisian version of a traditional osteria that blends recipes from the chef’s grandma with the type of fare served in modern-day French bistros.

Frenchie Pigalle: The iconic institution from Paris’s Sentier neighborhood opened up a globally-inspired spot in Pigalle serving reinvented takes like bacon scones and gougères with zaatar labneh.

Le Rigmarole: The Michelin-starred eatery helmed by Jessica Yang and Robert Compagnon gives a French twist to traditional Japanese yakitori.

Le Servan: Manila-born chef Tatiana Levha cut her teeth at haute addresses like L’Arpège, so expect elevated cuisine with an Asian twist, accompanied by wines selected by her sister (and sommelier), Katia.

Mokonuts: One of the few places in Paris serving a standout breakfast menu, Mokonuts offers dishes like sourdough waffles and tartine, focaccia, or buns of the day—but the highlight is the homemade cookies.

Clamato: Septime’s sister spot is walk-in-only and sources a menu of sustainable seafood delivered daily from coastal towns like Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Concarneau.

Le Collier de la Reine: With an atmosphere reminiscent of a New York City steakhouse, this stylish new addition to the Marais focuses on seafood, particularly raw platters.

The Best Bars in Paris for Digital Nomads

Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels: The dimly lit, cigar lounge-inspired space draws the after-work crowd for tapas and a standout selection of wines by the bottle and glass. Wine aficionados can geek out trying to guess the mystery wine of the moment.

Chez Georges: The French version of a dive bar, Chez Georges is a local favorite that draws nightly regulars for its laid-back atmosphere and affordable glasses of wine.

 Le Syndicat: One of the highlights of the Strasbourg-Saint-Denis area, Le Syndicat places French products on a pedestal to create top-notch craft cocktails from small-batch spirits.

Déviant: The wine bar from the same team at neighboring Vivant, Déviant serves up a mix of natural wines and creative small plates that can be enjoyed at the U-shaped indoor bar or on one of the tables spilling onto the sidewalk.

Danico: Make your way through pizzeria Daroco to Nico de Soto’s nautical-themed cocktail bar, which is consistently rated one of The World’s 50 Best Bars.

Lulu White: The Pigalle cocktail bar—rated one of The World’s 50 Best Bars—takes its name from a New Orleans character and mixes up cocktails like the Sazerac that are as authentic as in The Big Easy.

Little Red Door: One of the city’s most creative cocktail bars, Little Red Door feels like you’ve stepped into a scene from Alice in Wonderland, with the speakeasy entrance sitting next to the namesake little red door.

Les Enfants du Marché: Gastronomic seafood dishes are served with an impressive selection of natural wines at the counter and high-top tables tucked in the back of the Marché des Enfants Rouges.

Septime La Cave: The wine bar from the team behind neighboring Clamato and Septime is known for elevated bar fare and one of the city’s best natural wine collections.

Fréquence: Revolving around vinyl and cocktails, Fréquence turns into a dance party with food and drinks that are all guaranteed to be winners.

The Best Digital Nomad Cafes in Paris

Ten Belles 6: A spinoff of the Rive Droite locale, the bakery and coffee shop features a few tables inside and on the sidewalk terrace. The housemade sourdough is worth the trip alone.

Coutume: The specialty coffee shop is a short stroll from Saint-Germain-des-Prés and brews some of the city’s finest coffee. Weekends are busy, so it’s better to visit during weekday mornings.

Rivié at The Hoxton: Adjacent to the restaurant are communal tables and individual lounge spaces that are popular spots for casual meetings and coworking.

 KB Coffee Roasters: The specialty coffee shop in South Pigalle imports a taste of Australian coffee culture to Paris.

 Hardware Société: Bringing the brunch concept from Melbourne, Australia, to Montmartre, Hardware Société is beloved both for the view (it looks out at Sacré-Cœur) and the decadent breakfast dishes.

The Best Coworking Spaces in Paris for Digital Nomads

HUBSY Arts & Métiers: This is a mini-chain of coworking cafes, but the best location is near the Arts et Métiers metro stop, not far from Châtelet-les-Halles. Embracing a cafe feel, the lofted space features community and individual tables, plus hot and cold drinks and snacks.

Anticafé Beaubourg: Claiming to be the first anticafe in town, the former-art-gallery-turned-coworking spot has a few spaces that can be privatized for groups, or reserved individually for a half or full-day, as well as cocktail hour.

Morning, Sentier: Six floors offer coworkers places to post up, from communal tables to hotel lobby-style lounges.

Soho House Paris: Taking over a 19th-century apartment building, the newly opened Soho House—France’s first—features everything from a subterranean cabaret room to an outdoor terrace with sun loungers overlooking the winter garden.

WeWork: The Marais locale is in the heart of the neighborhood and offers amenities like a wellness room, bike storage, and parking—in addition to being dog-friendly.
