Imagine yourself in a room full of talented artists and intellectuals...people just like you, who live life to the fullest, who embrace creativity and chase risk fearlessly...as you slowly sip a delicious Bordeaux, you hear the lilting words of a poem that you assume must have been written by someone obscurely famous in the 18th century...until you realize the handsome man standing next to you just wrote it a few hours ago...the ink still wet on the paper...you blush coyishly at this discovery, when suddenly some of the best jazz you've ever heard starts banging out of the white piano across the room...you walk over and melt as you watch a mysterious stranger lend her voice to the music while you are suddenly transported back to the 1920's...you turn around and someone's pouring you another glass of wine...to your surprise, you discover that across the table someone is painting a portrait of you...and you've never looked so good! This is a night of magic and possibilities...anything can happen at La Bohemian Soiree in Montmartre!
"Delicious evening...attractive place...interesting people...Vive this new 'Midnight in Paris'! -Tatiana Bailleul, Doctorante en Histoire à L'université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

...sip wine, mingle and exchange -in a hidden corner, to a cluster of two or three, or to the whole room- as the energy guides you and the evening indicates! "Take the stage" when the spirit moves you, but don't be greedy...you are sharing a room with other humble, but high caliber talent and intellects...so be fair to your comrades and know your audience! Come in evening attire (whatever that means to you...you Bohemian!) We will provide the ambiance, hospitality, wine, aperos, OUR SIGNATURE HOME-MADE LEMON CAKE, a piano, violin and ukelele for those inclined...

“La Soirée Bohème de Montmartre 2 was so much more than entertainment and the nibbles--which were wonderful. It was an amazing way to meet talented, curious, open-minded, friendly, warm and passionate individuals willing to share their stories and experiences and listen to others'. From Cara (the organizer and host), to the photographers, actors, musicians, singers, authors, sculptors, and individuals from various professions and countries that I met, I retain wonderful memories, new friendships and that "I can't wait till the next soirée" sensation because I am looking forward to the pleasure of sharing the time and discovering more wonderful women and men!” -Deborah Gallin, Marketing and Communications Director
