Piano bar and jazz evenings
A centre for philosophy and jazz, Saint-Germain-des-Prés became a temple for recovery after the Second World War. At the Tabou, the former name of Café Laurent, Anne-Marie Cazalis met Boris Vian, Abadie, and Gréco, Queneau, Mauriac, Sartre and many other hipsters during evenings where jazz, existentialism and a certain joie de vivre took pride of place.
Today, the Café Laurent, although it has returned to its original name, perpetuates this tradition so closely linked to the neighbourhood's history. From Wednesday evening to Saturday evening, pianists, groups and singers take turns on the stage in our piano bar.
In this mythical venue in Saint-Germain-des-Prés which, in 1947, stayed open throughout the night, jazz evenings continue to chime out their notes and rhythms, no longer in the formerly packed cellars, but in a lounge offering a cosy atmosphere.
Although jazz concerts are programmed four evenings a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday), the rest of the time, pianists are occasionally invited to provide entertainment for evening events; and other aspiring musicians are also welcome to try their hand at the piano.
On one Tuesday a month, the Café Laurent becomes a literary café, an equally important moment in the neighbourhood's local life. Writers, philosophers, poets, or lecturers discuss a novel, an essay, a collection, a film... in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.Programme

Between tourism visits or during a working day, the Café Laurent is ideal for relaxing with colleagues in an intimate setting. And if you are taking advantage of the shops and galleries in the neighbourhood, treat yourself to some time out.
The Café Laurent also invites you to take advantage of its patio. This garden sheltered from the hustle and bustle of city life, welcomes you in both the summer and winter. The opportunity to take advantage of some fresh air as you savour the drink of your choice.A la Carte Menu
