Tucked away in Parc Buttes Chaumont in the mostly residential 19th Arrondissement, Rosa Bonheur, evealed by the five co-owners: Mimi, Zouzou, Christophe Vix-Gras and the awarded film production company Why Not Productions, is a guinguette (“a place where we drink, eat and dance !”). Comfortable, inexpensive, relaxed, with a great mix of people, Rosa Bonheur is the most rustic but nice parisian place. Basically, it’s one of the few venues in the city where you can drink, dance and laugh !
Entered only by the street grids Botzaris
The Parc des Buttes Chaumont was created by the architect Jean-Charles Alphand after Napoléon III decided to turn this former gypsum quarry into a beautiful garden. It was opened in 1867 after four years of work for the Universal Exhibition. The park is one of the largest in Paris and is in the style of an English garden with grass accessible to walk on. As a result, it is frequented often by Parisians along with their families and dogs. This park has many lovely features, some of which you will discover on this walk, and many exotic trees such as cedars of Lebanon and other various species from Asia and Africa.
Rosa Bonheur, more than a name above a gate
This video by Susan David (found on Youtube) reveals the work and the life of the first most known female painter of the 19 century in France. The name was chosen for its beauty, the obvious link with the history of the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont and feminism independent of the eponymous artist.
