Toulouse: at the Minimes, how the Ginette café will celebrate its fifth anniversary

the essential
From April 14 to 18, the Ginette aux Minimes café celebrates its fifth anniversary.

Five years already for the unmissable Ginette café, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary this weekend at Les Minimes.
The nineteen employees as well as the boss Nicolas Barthelemy are currently in the midst of refreshing their establishment. This weekend is already sold out. After two years without being able to celebrate it because of the pandemic, Ginette intends to catch up this year. Between disco, jazz and electronic music, things swing in the Minimes district. With its two terraces, the bar, the restaurant and the dance floor, Ginette has become the reference for trendy evenings.

A reasonable and reasoned brewery

Café Ginette is also a responsible brewery. The only brewery in Toulouse to have obtained the two coveted labels: Ecolab and Antigaspi. “It’s a personal challenge. Make a brasserie with more than 90 seats and an affordable menu. There is no need to be a gourmet restaurant with 12 covers to be responsible and to be able to choose local products and reduce the carbon footprint,” explains Nicolas Barthélémy. With a varied menu also offering vegan dishes and platters, the objective is simple: to ensure that the place is accessible to everyone, while respecting the planet.
If on the plate the products are local, beers and wine are also part of it. Ginette has a varied and changing selection of beers from the Toulouse region. The youngest being delivered by bike to no longer have a carbon footprint. The wine is stored in dispensers to avoid excess glass waste.
The next goal is to remove Coca-Cola and Fanta sodas and find a more artisanal and local alternative.

From April 14 to 18, from 7 p.m. to 2:45 a.m., at 46 avenue des Minimes.
