Galerie Véro-Dodat was built in 1826. At what is now the Café de l'Époque, just at the gallery's entrance, the French writer Gérard de Nerval took his last drink before heading to Châtelet to hang himself. The glass-ceilinged gallery has painted medallions and copper pillars and shops selling contemporary art, instruments, and leather goods. It's best known, though, for its antiques stores.
