Le Clown Bar information
A historic monument next to the city's winter circus, the Cirque d’Hiver (1852), this unique address is practically a museum with its ceramics, mosaics, original zinc bar and purist art deco style. A restaurant for decades, this mythical address now serves up fabulous modern French cuisine and excellent natural wines for a jovial crowd. Its pavement terrace gets packed out on sunny days.
If you fail to snag a table for lunch or dinner, return between meals to admire the decor – over an early morning café with regulars (the bar opens at 8am) or a glass of vin naturel.
