Chess Club in Paris?

harrogate

I'm going to be spending 6 weeks in Paris every summer for work.  I was hoping to find a proper chess club to join, but all I can find mentioned online are the pickup games at Jardin Luxembourg.  I hear it's mostly 5 min games there, which doesn't really interest me.  Anybody know of a real chess club in Paris?  Thanks!

Try the Cafe' de la Re'gence in the Palais-Royale....by the McDonald's. I heard it just recently opened a few summers ago....in 1681.

(....if only in our hearts)

I played at the Jardin de Luxembourg park recently. Quite a beautiful place. As an American, no one was very welcoming but I got plenty of games in. I just had to be somewhat assertive in challenging people.

Perhaps one of these can fill the bill:
