The 3rd arrondissement of Paris guards many secrets and surprises. During your stay at the Paris France Hotel, why not take the time to explore the streets of this district? Your steps may take you to the Passage Molière and a brand-new bookshop: the EXC Librairie, a contemporary but timeless place entirely dedicated to poetry. Let us tell you about it.


A very special place

The EXC Librairie was situated with great care and consideration. It opened its doors in March 2022 in a place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the street: the Passage Molière. This cobbled alley, closed to traffic, picturesque and lined with colourful storefronts, brings to mind a timeless Paris celebrated by many poets, singers and writers. The bookstore also has as a neighbour La Maison de la Poésie, a hub for literary life where various events take place. It all adds up to a literary enclave in the heart of Paris!


An ambitious project

In addition to an immersion in the world of literature and philosophy, the EXC Librairie aspires to be at the centre of 21stcentury poetry. That’s why it brings together works from all over the world, while highlighting new trends and supporting writers who are not yet well known. Each week, readings and dedications enrich the place and create links between the poets and the public, generating exchanges and sharing. Enthusiastic staff are always available to advise you on what to read or direct you to the latest publications.


In the heart of the Marais, the Passage Molière is a place full of magic and poetry. Situated opposite the Maison de la Poésie, the EXC Librairie has found its natural place there. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this superb new bookshop during your stay at the Paris France Hotel!
