Draped with British and French flags and cheerful blue canopies that welcome visitors, The French House is a sophisticated establishment with a small bar on the street level where an eclectic after-work crowd gathers to discuss wine, theater, and current events.

Black-and-white photos of past theatrical stars, Bohemian heroes, and famous patrons adorn the walls to create a pleasant air of nostalgia and a fitting setting for the artsy clientele.

Large windows open onto the street, fostering a congenial atmosphere between the patrons inside and those sipping their pints on the sidewalk.

The quaint French restaurant upstairs offers an intimate hideaway for a private tête-a-tête and a delectable menu of creative French dishes, while the knowledgeable bar staff is happy to recommend the perfect wine from their extensive selection.

For an evening of civilized conversation and a dash of local culture, The French House really can’t be beat.
