At the foot of the Montmartre hill, a stone's throw from the Place de Clichy, the Bistrot des Cinéastes is a landmark for lovers of the big screen but also for good bottles of wine.Let's admit it, the combo "wine, food and cinema" is often the herald of a very nice evening. If you agree, the Cinéma des Cinéastes is made for you! Discover this atypical place.
At Father Lathuille's house, Edouard Manet...
His past is very turbulent! In the 19th century, it was the Lathuille cabaret guingette that was in full swing. This inspiring place welcomed the greatest artists such as the painter Manet, who painted a canvas there.
The Cabaret became in 1906 a concert café from where the voices of great singers such as Maurice Chevallier were heard. We had to wait until 1996 to discover Le Cinéma de Cinéastes, inaugurated by its godmother Fanny Ardant!
Behind its hipster and hipster look, Le Cinéma des Cinéastes is developing as a showcase for world cinema. It's a place for meetings, previews and other special evenings in the presence of directors!
The Cinéma des Cinéastes has a programming of art films and essays. No, these are not slow, Chinese films with Polish subtitles. They are less known films but they deserve attention because they give the most cinematic slaps!
Forget about American blockbusters and coca for an evening, and discover this cultural nugget that makes you want to chat over a drink after the session.
This Cinema has a particularity: no popcorn at the entrance but wine at the exit! Imagine: you leave the cinema, you sit down at the bistro with your friends, and you discuss the film in front of a good board of charcut' then a good bottle!
The great originality lies in the names of the dishes! Each dish is associated with a film, and the menu changes every season. With Marcel Pagnol's baker's wife, eat a plate of mountain sausages. With Alexandre le bienheureux by Yves Robert, eat a duck foie gras with 4 spices... Here is a gourmet way to rebuild your film culture!
The Bistrot des Cinéastes has a well-filled menu, with beautiful references from a wine shop on boulevard Beaumarchais. Several independent winegrowers are in the spotlight, such as Château Ricardelel with its Alancade 2012, a Mediterranean red wine with beautiful spicy, menthol and liquorice notes.
Our little favourite is the Sancerre Blanc 2012 from Domaine Jean Paul Picard, a fresh and very mineral wine, perfect with goat cheese!
We asked Jérôme, the barman, what was his favourite wine:
Jerome, the bartender and Charlotte
Jerome: "It's the Viognier Truth! A local white wine by Laurent Miquel."
Fruit we made: Why do you like it so much? To have a good evening and debrief a movie?
Jérôme : Yes, but especially because it's a wine full of freshness that goes very well after a long service! (laughs)
Now that you know all that, what are you waiting for to fill your stomach and mind? ????
