Description: Located on the pedestrian Boulevard Longchamp, you will find the Longchamp Palace, an Art-Deco bar untouched since the 1930’s.Once a cinema artists den in the 1950’s, Pagnol and Raimu were allegedly spotted having a "pastis" ( local anise-flavoured liqueur and aperitif) in this bar.With its stained-glass windows, sculpted ceilings, zinc bar, listed fresco and its monthly exhibitions, the Longchamp Palace is both an Art-Deco emblem and a friendly place for local businessmen and artists alike.At the bar, the famous “pastis” and the tasty local wines are not to be missed and can be enjoyed cheaply during the “ Palace Happy Hours” from 5 to 8pm.On the food front, the chef offers a list of tasty seasonal dishes which are all homemade with market ingredients.From 7pm onwards, have a go at the selection of cheese and cured meats.From 11am to 4pm on Sundays, a brunch of sweet and savoury dishes is served while old vinyl records of your choice are being played on the phonograph.The Longchamp Palace is open all year round and you can either enjoy your meal inside, next to the fireplace, or outside in the patio according to the season.
