Le Soleil de la Butte has two faces: by day, this picturesque restaurant in Montmartre attracts tourists like bees to honey with its sunny terrace at the foot of a set of stairs, away from the pollution and traffic. Later on, it draws the night owls of the neighbourhood in search of a nightcap and on weekends, it stays open until dawn. The menu is affordable, classic Parisian brasserie, making it a good choice for lunch or dinner (the kitchen is open non-stop until 1am). During the week, the room in the basement is rented out to musicians, small theatre companies and comedians. On weekends from 10pm until dawn, it becomes a den for DJs; the music can be hit and miss, but this is certainly a good place to hear some new sounds in the early hours.
