Le Magazine du Comptoir Général
Since its creation, Le Comptoir Général, a bar, restaurant and a place to live in Eastern Paris, has always been committed to defending the causes that are dear to it. First social, then cultural, this commitment is now embodied by the creation of the Club du Comptoir Général (CCG), whose vocation is to pay tribute to Nature and its countless wonders.
Born from the meeting between Aurélien Laffon, founder of the Comptoir Général, and Pierre Affre, eminent figure of international fishing and inveterate collector, among others, of objects of curiosity in the broadest sense, the CCG defends a certain idea of blue ecology and the preservation of our aquatic worlds. If its members are the actors, this magazine is its voice. Dedicated to the world of fishing, it mixes ecology, travel, history, art, science and poetry in a polyphonic and passionate ode. It can never be repeated enough, fishing, reasoned, plays an essential role in the balance of rivers, seas and oceans.
Comptoir Général, always against the current and free of its evolutions, is proud to honor this sometimes ostracized approach to Nature, and to make this magazine read like an explorer’s notebook in search of rare and precious objects, natural curiosities, framed butterflies, shells, birds,… and mysterious collections. Guided by his passion, far from what people say.
