Green Initiatives

Join us in celebrating a more eco-friendly festival at Bastille Day this year! We are committed to reducing our environmental impact by implementing eco-friendly practices throughout the event. Enjoy your drinks in reusable cups (verres consignés) to minimize waste, and help us limit non-biodegradable and non-recyclable waste. Together, we can make this Bastille Day a celebration of not only French culture but also our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Let's enjoy the festivities while caring for our planet!

We encourage everyone to bring their own cups to Bastille Day, or you can purchase a reusable one at the bar with your first drink.

Dress French to Drink!
