The Art Nouveau decor is subtly underscored by the authentic zinc bar, polished brass rails, and lace curtains adorning the windows. These details are highlighted by the bronze-encased crystal tulip chandeliers that contribute to the lively ambiance of the brasserie. They also reflect the bistro posters of the namesake liqueur and of its epoch in the large wooded mirrors that line the back walls of the dining room.
