La Nuit Americaine at Flûte l'Etoile

Text and photos by Dave Guilford


Last Sunday was Flûte L'Etoile's first La Nuit Americaine, and judging by the crowd and the atmosphere, it was a big success. The brainchild of Flûte owner Herve Rousseau, La Nuit Americaine will be a regular weekly event held on Sunday nights starting at 7:00 pm. His passion for melding French and American culture provided the inspiration for the party.

Hosted by the charming and vivacious Maggie Kennedy (left), an expat from New Orleans, the evening's Mardi Gras theme was brought to life with drink specials on Big Easy favorites like Hurricanes and Mint Juleps. The mojitos at Flute are always popular, and the refreshing champagne sangria seemed to be the big hit of the evening.

While it can feel a little strange walking into a French bar and hearing nothing but English, it doesn't take long to settle into this little slice of Americana right here in Paris. Maggie tells me that other theme nights are in the works, so get your '70s gear ready and make plans to check out La Nuit Americaine at Flute. Check the calendar for updates on upcoming theme nights.
