My fiancee and I are planning on getting married in Paris this August. We both live here so will have the ceremony at the city hall in our neighborhood, the 6th. Can anyone recommend a reception location for about 50 people that is possibly nearby? The proximity to city hall is not totally necessary. We don't want to be in a closed off private room that feels stuffy. An open space like an old zinc bisto where people can mill about and have cocktail, dinner and possibly dance, would be terrific.
Are there any bistos which can be rented out entirely? Perhaps private salons around the city that could be catered?
We don't want to blow the bank but want to have a great very Paris feeling party for our friends and family from North America.
Thanks very much.
