This is one of Time Out's 100 best bars in Paris. Click here to see the full list.
On summer afternoons, the terrace of Café Chéri(e) is an ideal spot to sip your drink, in red plastic chairs all turned towards the street, seeming expressly arranged for people-watching, paper-reading and sunbathing. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm til 2am, devoted DJs warm up the little dance floor with electro, rock, hip-hop, funk, indie and more. The nights are all different but work together as a whole, attracting a hip young crowd to what is essentially a neighbourhood bar, and the venue is always full after 10pm. In summer the throng spills out onto the pavement for a smoke or to get a bit of distance from the pounding music, while in winter you have to ram up against your neighbour to dance and crane your neck to breathe. Upstairs, don’t miss the little exhibitions and the temporary bric-a-brac sales.
