Nestled on the Atlanta BeltLine sits Paris on Ponce, an amazing mixed use space housing a coffee/juice bar, booths with a variety of antique and furniture retailers from over 30 “boutiques”, and a burlesque lounge (wild, right?)
Boasting a space of over 45,000 square feet, you’ll find home furnishings, paintings, knick knacks, clothing, and everything in between. Each of the 30 shops is hand-curated, and vendors and designers bring in items from around the country, as well as the world.
Each of the 30 boutiques has its own corner of the store, representing works gathered from a variety of different collectors and designers. The art, furniture, and memorabilia range from vintage to wacky; we found everything from handmade retro coasters, to a collection of taxidermied alligators and squirrels.
In the very back of the store is the most fascinating part of Paris on Ponce: Le Maison Rouge. This French-themed boudoir is straight out of the cabaret in Paris, with dim lighting and every surface covered in red velvet and gaudy decorations.
Le Maison Rouge can be rented out for events, and it has a stage perfect for bands or parties. The store hosts multiple events throughout the year in the venue space, including a Valentine’s Day party. THe space has even be used to host weddings, which I’ve seen while walking past the small outdoor patio facing the BeltLine.
