Brasseries near your hotel in Montparnasse
Have a good time in an emblematic place of the Parisian life!
How to talk about the Parisian lifestyle without addressing the subject of the many bistros, restaurants, bars and other brasseries? These places, whether popular or luxurious, hidden or well known to all, each have an identity, a history, even a soul. Today, we have selected three unmissable brasseries of the capital, all in the vicinity of your Parisian hotel, in the 14th arrondissement.
Near our hotel restaurant in Paris
La Coupole, the temple of celebrities and Art Deco
What is the common point between Simone de Beauvoir, Salvador Dali, Albert Camus, Edith Piaf, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse? They all met one day for dinner or a drink at one of the tables in La Coupole. Place of meeting or reunion of dozens of French and international artists, La Coupole offers a rich menu today, torn between tradition and modernity, in an exceptional Art Deco setting. This renowned brasserie is within walking distance from your hotel in Montparnasse.
La Rotonde, a haven between the wars
The First World War ended, Parisian life reorganized. Artists from diverse backgrounds emerge and seek out bistros, restaurants where to meet, to exchange about art, politics and the future. The Rotunde is one of those places.
She welcomed Modigliani, Apollinaire, Cocteau, Foujita, and watched them debate, drink, laugh and even sometimes beg, without ever worrying about the morrow. This piece of history, just two minutes from your hotel in the 14th borough of Paris, welcomes you today with the same warmth as in the past.
The Dome, the “Anglo-American” coffee
The first café in Montparnasse, the Dome, with La Coupole and the Rotunda, is one of those brasseries where many artists like to meet. If the two brasseries mentioned above had the favors of French and European artists, the Dôme could boast of welcoming the elite of American literature and photography at the time. Ernest Hemingway, Robert Capa, Man Ray and Ezra Pound have met many times in this typical setting. The menu, once cheap, is now dedicated to culinary excellence, with quality fish recipes. Less than 100 meters from your hotel, treat yourself to one of the best restaurants in Paris.
Enjoy your hotel in Montparnasse and the surrounding area
Begin by taking a refreshment in our bar l’Atelier, and admire its carved woodwork. Then take the direction of the street the Gait, and admire the facades of its numerous theaters. Spend the lunchtime in one of the brasseries that we advise you, then push your walk to the Atlantic garden, located on the roof of the Montparnasse station and appreciate the charm of this secret place for many Parisians.
Back at the hotel, make a detour by the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art and its sumptuous gardens. To finish off your day, head to the hotel to relax in our courtyard, to the sound of water runoff.
