Cabaret Aux Trois Mailletz

March 27, 2015 / Food & Drinks
les trois mailletz

What is Paris? You may say: a tourist mecca, a cultural heart of Europe, fantastic architecture… But, to our mind, first of all Paris is the freedom of spirit, mood which you have to feel and plug into it keeping good company!

The Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees, Les Invalides, etc. – that’s fine, but you need something else to make the picture complete. :-)

Want some joy and fun? Go to the places where it is not just words, but a true philosophy and meaning of life. We would like to show you such a place. Cabaret Aux Trois Mailletz!

Live and learn – it’s never late… Every schoolchild knows about close relation between France and England.  The countries were at war (one against another and together against a common enemy), traded with each other, shared their cultural traditions, etc. However, the French language (Norman, if to be more correct) had been an official language of England for a period of three centuries (!!!) Just imagine! Shock?! :-)

Napoleon height – centuries old illusion

Napoleon's height

Probably, some of us imagine the famous French Emperor Napoleon as a small and short man standing on a special pedestal and watching the battle field. No wonder, because it was considered for a long time that Bonaparte had a height of 157 centimetres.

However, according to the information, found in memoirs of Emperor’s valet (he definitely had to know it about the sovereign), the height of Napoleon was “5 pied 2 pouce and 3 lines” – 169 centimetres in current calculation. And that’s a different story, so long as it was height above the average European men of that time.
