La Palette - le bar

La Palette

The rainy day refuge was a photographer's delight 
as we enjoyed the classic French fare and a glass of bubbly.  
The weather provided the drama.

Il pleuvait des cordes!

(It was raining cats and dogs - loosely translating here, 
but I am sure that you know some other French expressions 
for an abundance of rain)

Looks like you found a perfect cozy spot to ride out les chat et chiens —clearly, you are a "Champagne flute half full" kind of gal!

In all our trips to Paris, I've never seen it rain more than a slight sprinkle.

I love the used palettes on the wall.

Genie, I love this café on rue de Seine. It's a very popular place and almost always too crowded for me but I remember a cold winter morning several years ago. I was out taking pictures and needed two things: to get my hands warn and to change film. La Palette has a real old time Paris feel to it. I had a grog au rhum, changed film in my camera and went back out, inspired by the ambiance of the café and no doubt enhanced by the grog! Thanks for the memory!
