The Buttes Chaumont park, situated in the Northerneast of Paris, between the 19th and 20th arrondissements, is already a huge melting pot. The Rosa Bonheur feeds on that atmosphere. In the middle of the Parisian park, the Rosa Bonheur has quickly become an institution for a very eclectic crowd: young and old, hip and old-fashioned but always laid-back, unpretentious and kid-friendly.
Translated as “Pink happiness”, the bar is not as girly as t seems. In fact, it’s a direct reference to a 19th-century French artist, known for her engagement in the feminist movement. Nowadays, the soul of the local is Mimi, who used to run Pulp (a Parisian lesbian club).
Two bars, a terrace with a great view of the park, fancy disparate décor, great tunes and a bunch of activities makes it one of the best place for either an after work drink, Sunday brunch or just to chill with a book. Basically, this wood pavilion is the answer to all day drinking cravings, dance club needs at night and mellow atmosphere during the weekend.
If you want to be seated, arrive before the after-work crowd.
For brunch, phone reservation is strongly advised.
