Place Yves Saint Laurent

This mini-square is steeped in architectural history. The casino, built in 1912, is a mythical place. Since its inauguration by Nijinsky and the Ballets Russes, its Italian theater has hosted, among other things, the programming of the City's Cultural Season. At the opposite corner, the Normandy Barrière hotel offers its entrance on the “Cour normande” side. Coco Chanel opened its first boutique there in 1913, and invented Chanel beige in reference to the wet sand of the beach.
