The legendary Parisian restaurant La Coupole welcomed many famous names through its prestigious doors during its roaring twenties heyday. Tango was immensely popular and La Coupole was its Paris home, where Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Jacques Prévert, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Ernest Hemingway would while away the hours.
Josephine Baker was a regular visitor and La Coupole was a place during the war years where patrons of any nationality came together. Today the spirit of La Coupole prevails and what could be more romantic than to tango with your partner in the heady atmosphere of this famous and exceptional restaurant.
Beautifully renovated, the restaurant retains many of the custom made pieces which were created for its original opening, and provides the perfect Art Deco setting where you will tango, salsa, pasa doble, chachacha, foxtrot and rumba with style and aplomb.
Each Sunday the Dancing Paris La Coupole presents a unique tea dance where patrons join in with gaiety and abandon to experience an unforgettable taste of the twenties for themselves. Be a part of this splendid tradition with an event unlike any other during your stay in Paris.
