The legendary tea room Angelina is set to open another tea room in Paris at the Musée du Luxembourg (6th arr.).
Housed in a brand new building designed by architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, the combined tea room, café and restaurant will offer museum visitors light lunches, desserts and its famous hot chocolate in an elegant Belle Epoque décor reminiscent of the original location on rue de Rivoli.
Founded in 1903 by the Austrian Antoine Rumpelmeyer, Angelina has been a Parisian institution for more than a century.
In addition to its flagship location on rue de Rivoli, the company also has tea rooms at the Palais des Congrès (17th arr.) and Musée du Louvre (1st arr.)
The new tea room will host a series of dinners followed by debates on a selection of cultural and art topics.

UPDATE: The opening of Angelina at Musée du Luxembourg has been postponed to April 2012.
