Address Café de la Paix 54 Rue Chaudrier, 17000 La Rochelle, France

Opened in 1793 in a former hospital, the military café, which became the Café de la Paix in 1900, is a part of the history of La Rochelle.

From 1712 until the beginning of the 19th century, the Saint-Etienne hospital, founded by Anne Forestier to relieve the city’s hospitals, took up residence in this brand new building. Despite the death of its founder in 1740, the premises continued to house a health care establishment until the early 19th century.

It was during this period that one part of the building became a theater and the other a military café. In 1852, the neighboring houses were bought and allowed the future Café de la paix to expand. In the first half of the 20th century, the theater became a movie theater still in operation today.
