his used to be an institution and I have been many many times, except in the last few years. As expected, it is not longer the same, be it the food or the atmosphere. La Coupole is just gone and I would not go back.

Dear Shelley476, we will be happy to welcome you the next time you travel at Paris. It's a pleasure for us to have such a faithfull guest. See you soon at La Coupole. Best regards.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away

A true Art Deco masterpiece, La Coupole is the most famous Parisian brasserie in the world. Today it is the quintessential symbol of Montparnasse's history, as well as a key component of the art of living and socialising in Paris, particularly in the 14th arrondissement.
