Paris: Café de Flore
Café de Flore is located in the 6th Arrondissement of Paris, and it’s one of the area’s most famous bars. It’s one of the city’s most ancient and prestigious coffeehouses together with its historic rival, Le Deux Magots, located within a few minutes walk. It gets its name from Flora, the goddess of flowers who has a statue across the street.
The café’s interior has not changed since WWII: it’s in Art Deco style, with red seats and filled with mirrors. Many artists have enjoyed its atmosphere, and some of these have passed down to history and became famous. Among the latter we count the likes of Jean–Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus and Charles Maurras, that completed his book Au signe de Flore at the first floor of the coffeehouse.
Nowadays the Café de Flore is a popular tourist destination, but also the place in which every year the literary award Prix de Flore is awarded.
