Oscar Wilde – Paris 4

Les Deux Magots, the Saint-Germain des Pres café that was made famous post-World War II by Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone Beauvoir, is now frequented by celebrities and tourists.

Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce were just two of the many famous customers in the pre-World War era.

But Oscar Wilde was one of its earliest patrons, often at the café during his first visit to Paris in 1881.
