It all started in the heart of rue des Abbesses with the opening of a small two-storey hotel, Le Pompéa. It is then a troquet in the purest popular Parisian tradition, where everyone could meet. In the 1930s, a second hotel was created, L'Antinéa, by the owner of the premises, Father Teissier, who then raised the building by three additional floors. This hotel housed the love affairs of Edith Piaf and her pianist. Managed in the 1950s by M. Laurent and M. Méria, the place is appreciated by local traders, craftsmen and artists, in particular thanks to its large counter and its 4 billiards.
