Canal Saint Martin

Just down from the Canal St-Martin, the bare brick, Formica and framed '50s ads of this funky venue attract an inner circle of regulars. These days it's established enough to produce its own T-shirts and customised bar stools. Reasonable prices - half-litre pitchers of sauvignon, Brouilly and Chablis in the €10 range - attract a mixed bag of tastes and generations. The two rooms behind the main bar are set aside for dining (affordable classics) and music (generally acoustic). Sunday is open-mic night.
