Is there anything more romantic than a traditional Parisian arcade? Little known by the general public, Parisian arcades like the Galerie Vivienne are discreet, chic and luxurious. It is here that Jules feels calm, detached from the bedlam of the Grands Boulevards and the Parisian lifestyle. In the BistroVivienne , Jules takes time to experience simplicity, savoring his glass of wine and sampling the home cooked food. As a big fan of old Parisian Bistros, Jules admires the plush sofas, the traditional wooden tables and chairs, and the elegant antique mirrors.
In this arcade, designed by the architect Delannoy, Jules likes to dream of a time when Vidocq lived at the top of the grand staircase, with the noblemen coming to admire the semi-circular windows and the magnificent rotunda lavished with decorations of nymphs and goddesses. It is a delicate and poetic place that should be discovered when strolling around lazily.
Open Monday to Saturday, noon – 11pm
