Hg2 : The Hedonist

De la Ville Café

The people behind Café Charbon rescued and refurbished this many-talented former brothel, handy as a pre-club or even instead-of-club venue near Grands Boulevards.

It has something of a multiple personality, with a street-level terrace for daytime WiFiers, then a Belle Epoque bar inside, an industrial-baroque room with distressed walls, tables set out like a boho bistro, and further stairs to an art-gallery space. In a clubby nook at the rear, sauna-like pine cladding, padded seating in sex-district red and a clutch of taxidermy trophies create a surreal, where-are-we drinking den.

The electro beats and a cast of nightlife creatures, more fascinating as the night unfolds, belie De La Ville’s less atmospheric daytime incarnation. There’s a restaurant menu, offering burgers, carpaccios and vegetarian antipasti, as well as a brunch formule at 20 Euro.
