Paris has lots of recommended turn of the century bistrots, but this one is off the beaten track and has a more authentic air. (It isn't, as some reviews suggest, Art Deco.) The walls are decorated with the sinewy designs of art nouveau, with mirrors...More

Quirky faded art deco cafe, this makes me feel like home. Great food, friendly service, the tables are packed tight as expected in Paris.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
