At Les Pipos, by Lisa Anselmo

The bar at the popular Les Pipos, in the Latin Quarter, dates from the mid-1940s, and there has been a bistro or café on this site for the last 130 years. Woody Allen liked to hang out here when he was filming Midnight in Paris in the area.

Les Pipos was in danger of losing its lease, and its future is still unsure, but hopeful after the locals launched a petition to save it.

  1. I used to live across the street from Les Pipos. It’s a wonderful place and shouldn’t go the way of the dodo as so many cafes in Paris are. Hope it will survive the stultifying gentrification that is deadening cities everywhere.
