I bumped on this while using a search engine about our guest house’s name.

Here is first paragraph …

‘They went there every evening about eleven o’clock, just as they would go to the club. Six or eight of them; always the same set, not fast men, but respectable tradesmen, and young men in government or some other employ, and they would drink their Chartreuse, and laugh with the girls, or else talk seriously with Madame Tellier, whom everybody respected, and then they would go home at twelve o’clock! The younger men would sometimes stay later.’ ……

From the first lines I guess this house was offering services which are certainly not available in our respectable B&B. And what is more, in Reims we would propose Champagne instead !
