Annie Cordy


Baroness Léonie Cooreman, known under the stage name of Annie Cordy (1928 – 2020), was a Belgian film actress and singer. She appeared in 50 films, starting in  1954. She staged many memorable appearances at Bruno Coquatrix’s famous Paris Olympia theatre. She was born in Laeken, Belgium, where, in 2004, King Albert II of Belgium bestowed upon her the title of Baroness in recognition for her lifetime achievements.

She was a colourful personality and a regular at “Chez Léon”, taking part in several restaurant openings in Paris, including the one in Pigalle with her great friend, cabaret owner Michou.

She is one of the Belgian stars with a plaque in her name at our restaurant.
