    I think the famous cafe still exists.
    I was once in Paris and tried to find it. I found a "Cafe Regence" near the Opera and went there thinking of seeing the place where luminaries like Morphy and others played, but instead found a brothel with whores asking me to ziper their pants!

    That's a shame. So near the opera, you say?

    The Café de la régence don't exist anymore. To see what you've got there, go in Google maps-->Paris-->street view-->161 rue Saint-Honoré

    But the Café Procope, famous chess café also still exists-->13 rue de l'Ancienne-Comédie
