The good life in Reims with the Sacrées Blogueuses

Exploring Reims with the Sacrées Blogueuses means getting off the beaten track, visiting unusual gems as well as the obvious favourites, to truly live like a local. Inquisitive by nature and with their fingers on the pulse, they are more than happy to show you the good life in the “sacred city”.

Le Coq Rouge

Choose from 250 wines and champagnes, and enjoy them in this wine bar’s rustic, vintage setting. We also like to let Baptiste give us his top tips for the delicious French tapas.

Chez Jérôme

Simultaneously a restaurant, tea room, and second hand shop, Chez Jérôme is a quirky spot, just how we like them. You can go for an unpretentious lunch or snack in its vintage interior, where everything is for sale.

23 rue de Tambour - Tel: 03 26 24 36 73

Le Clos

Le Clos is a unique little spot in the heart of the Boulingrin quarter. In winter, you can go there for a glass of wine in a cosy setting, and in summer you can soak up the atmosphere on Reims’ most stylish terrace.

25 Rue du Temple - 03 26 07 74 69

Le four à bois – Zunic

The smells drifting out onto the Rue de Vesle encouraged us to slip inside this temple to baking in Reims. Amongst the bakery’s many specialities, we recommend La Champezienne or the pink biscuits.

80 rue de Vesle - Tel: 03 26 47 40 20

Le Cabasson

Le Cabasson is a welcoming cafe with a cool retro interior. It’s the perfect spot for settling down to read with a coffee or having a drink with friends and playing the free board games.

37 Rue Cérès, 51100 Reims – Tel: 06 89 52 12 67

Au Bon Manger deli

This eatery is owned by a couple who are passionate about French produce. We like sitting down to sample natural wines and tuck into a platter of meat and cheese.

7 rue Courmeaux - Tel: 03 26 03 45 29

The Boulingrin bar

The Boulingrin bar is one of Reims’ oldest institutions. Ever since 1925, the “coffee guys” have been extending a warm welcome in their Art Déco interior, serving all the classic bistro dishes.

31 rue de Mars - Tel: 03 26 40 96 22
