La Cigale, mythical brewery of Nantes

The brasserie La Cigale, located 15 meters from the hotel, facing the theater, is a fine example of the great breweries at the Belle Epoque with amazing decor, fruit of the imagination and exuberance of the architect-ceramist Émile Libaudière.

The immoderation of the Art Nouveau era life size!

Officially inaugurated on April 1, 1895 and classified as a historical monument since 1964, the establishment offers a unique decor: rooms with very varied decorations, decorated with wood and gilded stucco, beautiful carved decoration, statues and large figures in ceramic tiles, large semi-circular bays covered with mirror ...

A mythical restaurant in the heart of Nantes

From its opening, the restaurant becomes a popular establishment of the bourgeoisie of Nantes and artists who perform at the theater Graslin but also surrealists like André Breton who appreciate the atmosphere of the place.

Later, the setting of La Cigale attracts filmmakers, and scenes of films are shot at the brewery: Lola (Jacques Demy - 1961), Debout les crabes, la mer monte !! (Jean-Jacques Grand-Jouan -1983),  Jacquot de Nantes (Agnès Varda -1991) ...

The philosophy of La Cigale: Kindness, Freshness and Quality

Today, La Cigale is still an institution of happiness, a temple dedicated to the art of living that continues the tradition of the great French breweries of the nineteenth century, an ode to gourmands and fine gourmets, a treat for both eyes only for the taste buds for over 120 years!
