The famous belfry of the gare de Lyon, built for the 1900 World Fair, is from now on facing competition from the architectural boldness of the Ministry of Finances spanning over the Seine river. Right next to it, the huge stage of 17 000 seats of the Accorhotels Arena POPB (ex: Palais Omnisport de Paris Bercy) with its turfed walls, the François-Mitterrand Library and its four 80 metres high gigantic books, like the Simone de Beauvoir footbridge will show you that Paris is not only a museum city. After a pleasant walk in the parc de Bercy and the Cour Saint-Emilion proposing many cinemas, you will be able to recharge your batteries at the Café Barjot mixing art deco and French cuisine. Unless you prefer the Européen, the brasserie of great Parisian tradition (special mention for the seafood and the andouillettes...) 

On Place de la Nation, you will find lovely sidewalk cafés and bustling businesses at the Cours de Vincennes. Enjoy the flavours of real Paris at Prosper, the Irish Corner, and Marco Polo. Or you can indulge your cravings at local favourites like the Bistrot d'Avron and L'Usine Charonne just next to the Timhotel.
