A new bar opens at 79 rue Cauchoise in Rouen (Seine-Maritime) Friday June 10, 2022: theEstaminet. After Aux Lillois, which until recently occupied this location, here is another name that evokes the North. The old regulars will therefore not be lost, especially since the brick wall, the bar, and beers from Belgium and Lille have remained the same. For the rest, the new owners of the places Émile Stalin, Colin Petit and Jérémy Bernad have printed their mark à la carte and with works.
“Popular, benevolent and family café”
No unusual concept here, but a strong identity, marked by the love of the profession and the friendship between the three partners from Rouen. “We are passionate”, assures Émile, who, like Colin, has worked in the hotel and catering industry for years. It was while working for the same establishment that they met.
Émile will be behind the bar, from where he will make his signature cocktails, presented à la carte alongside more classic cocktails, beers, and soft drinks. The establishment will also offer a wine of the month on the slate and snacks made up of charcuterie and cheese boards, as well as spreads. “All the products we ordered are products that we like, that we know and that we can talk about without any worries! »
Colin will use his sense of contact in the dining room where he will welcome and serve customers. As for Jérémy, he will rather work behind the scenes. “We are really in the definition of the estaminet: the popular, benevolent, family and warm café, a neighborhood bar”, describe Émile and Colin.
The establishment will be open “seven days a week for three weeks”, specifies Colin, before finding a more classic rhythm, from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. six days a week. All three are eager, to be able to share the beginning of this adventure with their clients. The opening night, from 8 p.m. on Friday, already promises to be a great party.
