Nuage Café – Freelancing the Parisian way

As Paris is a city where people live outdoors due to their apartment’s small sizes, one would think that working outdoors should be a natural thing to do as well. Where would Sartre have been if he couldn’t philosophize in the Café de Flore

But mind you: modern day philosophers, other kinds of free thinkers and (mostly) freelancers, are often condemned to Starbucks and the likes by lack of nice Wi-Fi equipped cafés. The French often like to keep their restaurants for appetite pleasure only, which is great as such, but not if you’re looking for a pleasant space to work.

Although Nuage Café is officially a work space and a perfect place to concentrate, it feels more like a cosy living room than a desk environment. That, and the fact that no long term subscription is asked for, is why I imagine it to be a good option even for visitors passing by. Even without a computer it’s a place to meditate, read, play the piano (yes, there is one at your disposal, with headphones) or just have a coffee. Also regular activities are organised, sometimes freelance related, but often not: think knitting, creative writing…

Nuage Café allows you to stay in at the rate of 4€ per hour – day, week and month rates are available too. This includes great coffee (they have been nominated for a best coffee award this year), fruit and little snacks whenever you want.
