La Coupole a must do in Paris

Not far from the hotel Home Moderne, in the heart of the Montparnasse district, a restaurant or rather an institution is to discover. This is the restaurant La Coupole, located at 102 boulevard du Montparnasse.
This typical Parisian brasserie, exists since 1927, its art deco decor will make you travel in time. Indeed, each element of decoration recalls a particular style, so that the pillars in imitation marble and the cubist mosaics are classified in World Heritage of Unesco. Two men are at the origin of the Coupole, Ernest Fraux and René Lafont, two Auvergnats. The list of regulars of the time is long but the All Paris cultural went there. We think in particular of Kisling, Picasso, Aragon, Joséphine Baker, Henri Miller … As and for decades, the place was always frequented by artists (Gainsbourg thereafter, Renaud, Patti Smith ..)
The building is composed of two floors with an area of 800 m², the building is supported by 32 pillars that plunge to 12 meters in the ground with a height of 5 meters. The name La Coupole was blown away by a stranger as if to remind the neighboring restaurants the Dome and the “”Rotonde”. In January 1988, the Coupole is listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments.
There is something for everyone at La Coupole, seafood platters, an oyster bar, but also French specialties such as snails from Burgundy, duck foie gras half cooked or even the famous pig’s foot.
You will take full view and full taste buds!
