Restaurant Clown Bar

Clown BarIt was a historic bistro whose red nose décor and purring cuisine tickled tourists pink. A beautiful specimen from the early 20th century, with a timeworn bar, a painted glass ceiling and ceramic Sarreguemine clowns in the style of Winsor McCay, since Clown Bar used to be the local watering hole for the Cirque d’Hiver. When the affaire recently hit the market, the team for Saturne restaurant took possession of it, in order to create, after a facelift, one of the most sizzling café-bistros in Paris. In the kitchen, SotaAtsumi (Vivant Table) is absorbed in his staggering acrobatics, and depending on his mood and the weather, you can taste it all in the dining room, at the bar or on the terrace:

We are ready to stand the noise and the relative discomfort to come here to test fineand fresh cuisine. In conclusion, do not miss lemon pie and sesame: it is just amazing!

Exhibition : In the Time of Klimt – La Pinacothèque de Paris

PinacothèqueThe Pinacothèque de Paris wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt’s part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist’s talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition In the Time of Klimt, The Vienna Secession relates in detail that development in Viennese art from the end of the 19th century, beginning of the Viennese Secession, until the first years of Expressionism.

The core of the exhibition is based on a selection of major works by Gustav Klimt, from his first years of studying until the major works of his golden age, like Judith I (1901) or the Beethoven Frieze, a monumental work, reconstituted to scale and shown for the very first time in France.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections.

8, rue Vignon 75009 Paris
Until June 21st. Everyday from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm. late night opening on Wednesday and Friday until 8:30 pm.
