Recommendation by Lemi
Édouard Manet brings us back to the glamour of Parisian life while playing with the viewer’s perspective. He painted a barmaid at the Folies Bergère, a cabaret music hall, standing in front of a mirror. In the reflection, she is seen talking to a man. Her name was Suzon, and she actually did work at the venue. Claim your spot in one of the theater’s aging red seats, and enjoy after-show drinks from the very bar Manet painted. The Folies Bergère is an immovable part of Paris history, with the world’s biggest stars gracing its stage. Even with all the glamorous names that come to perform, it’s still an interesting point to note that Manet chose to pick a barmaid as his subject. The cosmopolitan crowd and glamorous interiors remain a backdrop, and it is a thought to drink to.
