Hg2 : The Hedonist

Le Fumoir

Where, oh where to find refreshment when you’ve just staggered out of the Louvre? The correct answer is Le Fumoir, famous for its Sunday brunch, but just as much of a pleasure midweek for elevenses, a pot of premium tea or the apéritif. The casually chic crowd encompasses every generation, from children to matrons in Chanel flats, and there’s ample room in a series of rooms and on the terrace (indoors is nicer, though). The main bar has a slightly scuffed colonial appeal, with unvarnished wooden floors and ceiling fans, whirring in harmony with jazz and cocktails being shaken; there’s more of a restaurant feel in the rear rooms, where you can order from a sophisticated brasserie menu. This is also among our favourite places to come alone with a notebook, novel or the laptop.
