A stone’s throw from the Old Port and Notre-Dame de la Garde), La Relève is much more than a local bar: it is an institution whose history is told like a popular tale.

Four chairs outside, taxi drivers, thugs mixed with the bourgeois of the 8th, the next generation has always been (since 1944 and the Agosta family) the obligatory crossroads of the village of Endoume. A place apart where we like to meet to discuss.

Nearly 80 years later the charm is still operating except that it attracts a larger and larger crowd each year. Some have even seen foreigners or even Parisians there lately.

To tell the truth, since the two Gregs took over the business, The next generation has been a total hit. For a simple and good reason, the welcome is always warm and the products are quality and affordable. No fuss here, an old-fashioned zinc counter, a beautiful terrace, the daytime catering/evening aperitif formula works wonderfully.

We come to the relief in the morning to drink coffee, at noon to have a bite to eat and in the evening to have a drink, we come here mainly because we feel good there.
