La Closerie des Lilas

A mythical address of the literature in Paris

La Closerie des Lilas is one of the mythical addresses that has hosted legends of literature and poetry in Paris.

Located in the Montparnasse district, La Closerie des Lilas was originally one of the first cafés that welcomed artists in this district. In the 19th century, Emile Zola, Paul Cézanne and Théophile Gautier made it their place to meet and let their imaginations run wild. Paul Verlaine and Guillaume Apollinaire followed in the footsteps of their elders in the 20th century, meeting every Tuesday to exchange and debate on poems with literary artists of the time. La Closerie des Lilas will also welcome foreign artists who are very famous today, such as Ernest Hemingway or Scott Fitzgerald.

A gastronomic restaurant in a literature atmosphere

Today, La Closerie des Lilas is a gastronomic restaurant where you can find the most famous dishes of French gastronomy such as foie gras and ris de veau (sweetbreads). You can feel there an artistic soul.

I recommend you this charming place where you will have a very good time while tasting a refined cuisine. Let yourself be carried away by the unique atmosphere of this place...
