Polidor was founded in 1845, a Paris institution, is the perfect blend of Artists, students and tourists. You could literally be sitting in the seat that Ernest Hemingway, Victor Hugo or Paul Verlaine once sat. Super cool for us literature and history buffs. It has most of the original décor and really embodies the spirit of St Germain des Prés. So grab your journal, a pen and enjoy the moment in time.
