True institution of the Buttes Chaumont Park, the restaurant Rosa Bonheur is a classified tapas bar. It was built in 1867, the same time as the “green ling” of the capital.
An ideal place to nibble or have a drink
It is in a very relaxed and friendly ambiance that you will be able to taste tapas, hot meals and drinks inside this beautiful pavilion or outside, with your friends or your loved one. From the beginning of October until the end of April, it is a restaurant and then when summer starts it becomes a bar where everyone serves himself or herself at the counter. The menu evolves with the seasons and the Chef’s mood! What is healthier and nicer than eating organic vegetables and cheeses right in the middle of the Buttes Chaumont Park, famous for being the capital’s biggest park? And that’s not all! You can also come at dusk, as the place becomes a nightclub from 10p.m to midnight. Its evenings are extremely successful, so we advice you not to come too late if you want to avoid the queue.
A tribute to a lady
The Rosa Bonheur’s name comes from a famous painter of the 19th century, famous for her animal paintings. A face of feminism, she was the first woman to receive the Legion of Honor in 1865. Proudly claiming her homosexuality, she left her temper to the place, known for its gay friendly and open-minded attitude.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 12p.m to 12a.m.
