In a cute house just a few steps from the Centre Pompidou art museum, you’ll find the friendly Happy Families, where everything is considered for your children no matter what their age. Relax and have a coffee while young bubs can play in a safe and secure soft playroom, and then order healthy kid-friendly snacks from their cafe, which is equipped with high chairs. Need a break from the little ones? Their friendly staff will watch them while you have a haircut, a manicure, or a massage — and your kids can get their hair coiffed too. It’s also a great birthday party venue, where they offer value packages for up to 10 children with special themes and a party leader.
