Inscription. Plus qu’une institution, l’ancien “Blute-fin” est un monument, avec sa légende héroique; en 1814, lors du siege de Paris par les Cosaques, le dernier de quatre frères d’une dynastie de meuniers attestée depuis 1621, les Debray, finit dépecé et cloué sur les ailes de son moulin au terme d’une défense désespérée. Sous la Restauration, son fils transforme le bâtiment en salle de bal, à la décoration essentiellement composée de treillis de jardin peints en vert. L’ambiance y est décontractée, et la clientèle plus populaire que dans les autres établissements, ce dont témoigne la tableau de Renoir, peint en 1876, “Le bal du Moulin de la Galette”. Après différents avatars l’ancien “Blute-fin” a été sauvé un 1979.

Under the Restoration, his son turns the building into a ballroom, decorated mainly composed of garden trellis painted green. The atmosphere is casual and the clientele more popular than in other institutions,
