The Dingo American Bar and Restaurant at 10 rue Delambre in the Montparnasse Quarter of Paris, France opened its doors in 1923. Most commonly referred to as the Dingo Bar, it was one of the few drinking establishments at the time that was open all night. It became the favorite haunt of the many English-speaking artists and writers who gathered in Paris during the 1920s and 1930s.
James "Jimmie" Charters, a former English lightweight boxer from Liverpool was the highly popular barman at the Dingo and was responsible for much of its success. Charters' "This Must Be the Place; Memoirs of Montparnasse" was published in 1934, edited by Morrill Cody with an introduction by Ernest Hemingway, republished 1937, then 1989.
The premises that was home to the Dingo Bar remains but today is occupied by L'Auberge de Venise, an Italian restaurant.
