This is Boulevard de Montparnasse’s iconic brasserie. It opened in 1927 and has hosted a parade of elite Parisian artists like painters Picasso and Chagall, writers Sartre and Cocteau and musicians Piaf and Gainsbourg.
The Art Deco decor is as popular as ever. Classified as historical monuments, the magnificent pillars hold up a dome painted by a quartet of Belle Epoque artists. Savour classic French dishes every day from 8am to midnight.
