The Rive Gauche (French for left bank) is a restaurant and café in the Kulturhaus LA8 with Mediterranean cuisine. It is run by a team of the Brenners Park-Hotel and Spa. While the hotel is located on the right side of the river Oos, the restaurant is situated within the Museum Mile on the left bank. Therefore the name is also a reference to the famous artists' quarter Rive Gauche in Paris.
The Rive Gauche is open from 12 am to 11 pm. Guests have the choice between the Mediterranean dishes of the menu and the daily changing dish, the Plat du Jour. After a phone order, it is also possible to take away the meal. In the afternoon the Rive Gauche offers coffee and cake creations. In combination with the two historic halls in the rear of the building and the club TwentyOne in the basement, the Rive Gauche can be booked for events. The diverse combination options leave nothing to be desired.
History and Building
The Rive Gauche was inaugurated in 2009, after the mansion Lichtentaler Allee 8 had been renovated. As part of these renovations, the former public rooms of the International Club were reconstructed in compliance with monument conservation guidelines and converted to restaurant rooms with 60 seats. The large windows of the winter garden allow for the unobstructed view into the Lichtentaler Allee. The outdoor area at the southeasterly corner of the building was extended by a terrace, where today up to 80 guests can have a seat within the English landscape park Lichtentaler Allee.
