The owner Adel is probably the most renowned chanson café owner in Paris, and this fine den of kitsch attracts countless devotees with a repertoire that extends to folk, gypsy jazz and world music. The crowd, fuelled by rum and ginger cocktails (the house speciality), are never less than enthusiastic, and the delicious food (French and Syrian dishes feature in equal measure) alone is worth the trip. If you’re looking to kick back, come in the afternoon and take a seat on the small outdoor terrace.

Weirdest experience I've had in a while! Good mum and dad band playing when we arrived but wasn't what we expected! The owner behind the bar didn't know much about his ginger cocktails and the Syrian chicken dish was excellent if you aren't bothered if it doesn't have chicken in it! The rest of the menu is limited and there are a lot of moustached men watching you whilst you sit there wondering what on earth you've stepped into!
