Our Story

Bastille Café & Bar was born of the admiration owners Deming Maclise and James Weimann share for café culture. Their vision of creating a neighborhood hang out where people could eat, drink, talk and enjoy life led them to spend countless hours scouring France and the US for the "bones" of Bastille. The space is a feast for the eyes, filled with artifacts found both near and far, from the iconic Parisian Metro Clock in the Café to the luminous chandelier that hangs in the Back Bar.
