I was staying nearby and walked by Swan Bar on my way to a nearby crèperie. Place was cleaned out with a For Rent poster on entrance. I had visited Swan Bar years ago and thought it was just ok.

A great place to hang out and relax and listen to good jazz. Somtimes live music but our evening was fantastic even though it wasn´t live. The owner Lionel Bloom is a part of the warm atmosphere and makes you feel welcome.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
