Its steak tartare has been its trademark since the 1950s. But Le Petit Olympia has above all been, for more than half a century, the "canteen" of choice for artists who perform at L'Olympia, enjoying a most improbable decor.


Le Petit Olympia is closely linked to the history of L’Olympia. This brasserie has been the base for artists performing in the iconic hall since the 1950s.

The place itself, which dates from 1905, owes its original name, the “Roman Bar”, to the frescoes to the glory of Rome painted on the walls by Gustave Surand and which earned the establishment to be listed as a Historic Monument, just like the facade of the Olympia and its red neon letters.
