Fodor's Review

Tucked away south of the Gare de Lyon in the 12e arrondissement, blocks of stone warehouses that once stored wine are now home to Bercy Village, a collection of shops and restaurants that stay open unusually late for Paris (shops until 9 pm, Monday to Saturday; restaurants until 2 am daily). You can still see the old train tracks used to transport the wine barrels from the provinces. Adjacent to the shops is the tranquil Parc de Bercy, with lawns, ponds, and flower beds

crisscrossed by gravel paths, and the Jardin Yitzhak Rabin, a garden named for the late Nobel Peace Prize winner. On the western edge of the park, near the Bercy métro stop, is the Palais Omnisports, a venue for concerts and sports. Nearby, at 51 rue de Bercy, a cubist building by Frank Gehry houses the Cinémathèque Française, a film buff's paradise showing classic films, many in English. There are frequent homages to directors and actors, plus a cinema library and museum.
