Café de l’Arsenic

Arsenic - Centre d’art scénique contemporain
In an oasis of green, the café de l’Arsenic, the Centre for Contemporary Performing Arts, is a multi-purpose venue that remodels itself during the season, from September to June. A vegetarian restaurant at lunch-time, a meeting place before and after performances or a concert or exhibition hall, it forms an integral part of the life of the Arts Centre.
