Bercy Village is the France’s first urban entertainment centre. This popular outdoor mall has an 18-screen cinema, restaurants, bars and a string of stores catering to the needs of Parisian families: home design, clever kitchen supplies, quality toy stores and more.
For more than a century and up until 1960, the Bercy neighborhood was a vast wine market, a heritage still visible in the ancient white-stone storehouses of the Cour Saint-Émilion, now protected as historical monuments. Restored and refurbished by the architects Valode and Pistre at the end of the 1990s, these storehouses now comprise a unique shopping center created by Altarea.
La Cour Saint-Émilion and its 42 restored wine stores, listed as secondary historic monuments “Inventaire supplémentaire des Monuments historiques”, is one of the last vestiges of the Bercy wine warehouses.

Features mall architecture
The former wine warehouse buildings of Paris, with their rough stone walls and sloped roofs of flat brown tiles, are aligned perpendicular to the Seine River. Boutiques, bars and restaurants now give the place new life. On either side of the restored warehouse buildings, new ones have been built as an extension of the existing ones. Long pleated zinc roofs echo their rythm and geometry on a larger scale. The structures are metal with stone fill, glazing, or wood weatherboarding. From the small warehouse buildings of the early 20th century to the new shops, Bercy Village takes into account time and place in a quest for authenticity.
Bercy also diverse area with shops, restaurants, leisure activities and entertainment spread over 15,000m².
