Two euros don't get you far in the capital: they'll stretch to the cheapest sandwich in Franprix, or one métro trip plus a couple of carambars, but no further. Unless you're hanging out at Charlie, whose owner Charlotte has struck upon the novel idea of selling half pints for the unheard-of price of €2 (or pints for €4). All night long. Music and conversation flow as freely as the brown stuff in this affable joint, where the sofas are comfy and acoustic guitars are laid out for customer use. Beerophobes can opt for a cocktail (€5 during happy hour) – classics are served alongside more elaborate creations courtesy of Charlotte and the chefs at her restaurant Miel et Paprika, situated across the road.
