The café de Flore is legendary, it has been the place for all literary meetings and philosophical debates for almost 50 years.
A meeting point of writer
It opened its doors in 1887. Around 1913, Guillaume Appolinaire settled there and transformed the ground floor into an editorial room. He created the magazine « Les soirées de Paris« . In the 1930s, it was the turn of writers, painters and intellectuals to take over the premises. Simone de Beauvoir, Jacques Prévert, Jean-Paul Sartre were among the regulars of the Flore. The world of cinema is not outdone and also takes hold of the places: Jane Fonda, Jean Seberg, Roman Polanski, Brigitte Bardot and Alain Delon are regulars of the Flora which is still one of the most legendary places in Paris
