|The history of Paris is partly written
at the counters and in the back rooms of its cafés and cabarets.
From the medieval taverns to the elegant cafés of the Lumières
without forgetting the guinguettes of the old regime or the revolutionary
clubs like the Procope, the place of cafés in Parisian society
hasn't stopped evolving over time.
But would Paris be without its cafés? Degas, Manet, Monet and Renoir, all the impressionists met in the popular cafés of Montmartre. Would Saint Germain des Prés and Montparnasse be as well known with such glory and reunite as many artists and writers without the prestigious addresses as Lipp, The Deux Magots, Flore and the Coupole, all historical classed monuments?
