With a 12-metre-high glass roof, le Passage du Grand Cerf is the highest of the covered passages in Paris (featured in Louis Malle’s 1960 film ‘Zazie Dans le Metro’). Linking the Rue Saint-Denis and the Rue Dussoubs, it's one of a second generation of passages built after Haussman’s restoration of central Paris, and had to close for a period because the glass roof had become dangerous. But major works have since returned it to its original glory. Look out for the wooden stag’s head (the ‘cerf’) and the other animals – a dragonfly, a crab – that adorn the shop fronts. At the entrance on Rue Saint-Denis, Le Pas Sage (a play on ‘passage’ and the French for ‘naughty’) is a hip and happening bar and bistro.
