Place du Châtelet, the heart of Paris, stands an historic café bearing the name of the greatest tragedienne of the French theater. Sarah Bernhardt was an actress adored during the time of great cultural exuberance known as the Belle Epoque bridging the 19 & 20th centuries. A theatre decorated in the style of the fin de siècle was dedicated to her and it is within its confines that the beautiful café also bearing her name is located. A place most elegant and chic, but equally popular.
The Sarah Bernhardt cafe is a feast for the eyes as it evokes the period of the Belle Epoque. In every nook and cranny the Art Nouveau decoration prevails. The arches connecting the dining rooms as well as the walls, the decoration of the glass enclosing the terrace, the floor mosaics, not to mention the period furniture all recall this golden age of Paris. An infinite number of details remind one of the world of theatre. Of course Sarah Bernhard is present everywhere with her photographs gracing the walls as well as a large portrait of her behind the bar.
