  • Former café, now a contemporary art centre.

  • Le Grand Café is a former café established in 1864, probably by Aristide Briand's father (Briand is a famous French lawyer and politician, Nobel Price in 1926). It remained a café up until 1969. It was purchased by the City of Saint-Nazaire in 1994.

    Founded in October 1997, Le Grand Café is now an exhibition space run by Saint-Nazaire contemporary art department. In 2004, it was acknowledged as a Contemporary Art Centre by the French Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication.
