6 establishments is a lot of work. We meet very regularly all together around the table to cut the end of fat. Because we make better decisions behind a rib of beef and a glass of picrate than in front of a powerpoint. Presentations.
Paulo, The Boss
Patriarch of the team, Paulo can do just about anything. He finds great locations, transforms them and pampers them. He is the man who hides behind our pretty places.
Darius, Finance & Strategy Director
No one sees Darius, but Darius sees everything. He's the master of the keys to Good life., and he's the final cut gentleman when we're not sure. Our Chuck Norris.
Péo, Public Relations Director
Face of the Lille cultural life, bon vivant, and generous, Péo is our public face, and it is a very smiling face. He also takes care of the pinard. A good guy we tell you!
Thibault, Directeur Stratégie & Communication
Put his two passions in a shaker, gastronomy and his crazy ideas, and you get the magic recipe for the places we create. It is also the pen that hides behind the speeches of each restaurant.
Lucy, Director of Operations
Pure product of the Good life training center, Lucy is a former one of our bosses who has become the boss of bosses. As she is English, she also takes care of the quality control of the beers. Obvious.
Camille, Kitchen Director
She is the coach of all our chefs. She builds dream teams, oversees crazy maps, and makes your boob thank your brain for pushing through one of our doors. She is the enemy of your summer body.
Nicolas, Director of Human Resources
He makes life good for all the people who work at Good life. Because if our guys are happy, our customers will be happy!
Good life. is the story of four lovers of the (good) life, who like to offer happiness to their customers. Creating places of (good) life is our mantra.
It all started at night, at the Magazine Club, with the desire to offer an alternative but unifying musical program to thousands of dancers, with a promise that is close to our hearts, to do things seriously without taking ourselves too seriously.
In 2014, we took our first steps in catering with the Mother, without experience, but with an always similar vision: to promote good products. It was time for our first canteen, and its beautiful refreshment bar. Like at mom’s.
In 2017, we continue to meet crazy producers, and we discover matured meat. It was such a crazy experience that we wanted to share it with everyone: BABE was born. The pleasure of placing the sourcing and selection of self-sufficient products at the heart of our plates, transforming very little.
2019 is coming. After an exceptional meal at Yves Camdeborde, we want to create a bistro where everything is shared, and where we break the usual structure of the meal: no more menu, no more “starters-mains-desserts”. Just a place out of time where gastronomy rubs shoulders with street-food, and where we no longer know very well where we started and where we stop. The future.
And then boom. Covid. We have time to sit down and think about what’s next. We miss our customers and we can no longer receive them. We then launched a grocery store / sandwich shop full of love: “My Love”. Love for our customers who we miss, love for our producers, love for sharing. We decide that this will be the perfect place to do our shopping, with everything we love: beer, charcuterie, wine, cheeses and… whipped cream.
Then, we decided to move to the new Place de la Gare d’Eau. Not once, but twice. Alien first, a travel tavern, a UFO where we surprise the senses and the taste buds: spices, influences of world cuisine, bizarre cocktails in a place where we wander like in an interstellar ship. And when you put your nose outside, a huge terrace with a view of a barge port. The real journey.
November 2021, and it’s Big Truck that parks right next to Alien. A local truck stop disguised as a dinner party. The best of simplicity, with well-known recipes twisted with 2022 sauce. And a big wine bar in addition, where you can taste pretty bottles under fairground lights. Life is Beautiful.
