L'ours was established October 1, 1878 by Ernest G Hegel, entrepreneur from Belgium. It was located G. Konushennaya St 27 inside of the Hotel Demouth (St Petersburg).

it was two dining rooms with 100-150 tables, and 29 private rooms. Staff included 200 employees, and 24 musicians' orchestra.

But unfortunately it was in St. Petersburg

vLADM,

I'm sorry to have mistaken...however this views are wonderful it is the very first time I see it...Do you know what happen to the building?

Does it still exist?

Thanks,
Vassili

vladm:
Façade of the building for my understanding should not have any changes, but interiors was totally remodeled, now first floor occupied by Theater - Russian Modern named after Arcady Raikin, and the rest of the building by various offices and organizations.

Vassili_Vorontsoff:
Vladm,

I've heard about the café the Hermitage which do exist (I'm sure) at least until 1917...

I believe this one was situated in Tsarskoye Selo,do you have pics?

Thanks in advance,
Vassili
