History

The name QUARTIER PUTAIN literally means 'Whore District' in French. 'Quartier = Neighborhood' 'Putain = Whore' There is no better name for a coffee bar – café in the middle of the ramparts. But we actually owe this name to Drs. P. He wrote a song called 'Quartier Putain' and thereby paid tribute to the ladies in the Red Light District. Until just before his death, he came every Sunday for coffee at Quartier Putain.

The square behind the church where Quartier Putain is located is therefore unofficially called the Drs. P. Square. The original founders, with their music background, found this very appropriate. The current owners have therefore kept this name.
