Café l'Appartement Saint-Martin

L’Appartement Saint-Martin is a coffee place located just in front of the Saint-Martin gate.

Parisian meeting place, the coffee place retranscribes this heritage with a cosy style in an industrial atmosphere.
The place offers a view of the Porte Saint-Martin which is one of the most famous triumphal arches in Paris. The monument was built at the request of Louis XIV in honor of his victories over the Rhine and Franche-Comté in 1674.
