The 100<br />best bars in Paris

This is one of Time Out's 100 best bars in Paris. Click here to see the full list.

Banal during the day, Le Tambour is the late-night haunt of all the neighbourhood’s night owls and insomniacs, staying open until 3.30am. The atmosphere is warm, though it can get a little crazy between the drinkers draped over the bar and the gruff, strapping barmen. But it’s always fun mixing in with this eccentric nightlife – more often than not you feel like you’re in a sailor’s tavern, decorated with a jumble of salvaged road signs, rather than in a bar in the centre of Paris. Here, you can satisfy any cravings for andouillette,a malodorous intestine sausage, for pig’s feet or simply for steak, at any hour of the day or night. To go with these rustic dishes, order a box or a bottle of wine à la ficelle (you only pay for what you drink). As you’d expect, the low prices increase slightly in the early hours.

Yeah - a really nice unpretentious place. Great to snuggle in to (not too many of those in Paris, unlike German cities) and while away the hours over a beer. Friendly with a nice crowd. Bar staff are obviously enjoying themselves in this busy place. Should have got 4 or even 5 stars from me but food poisoning (both my friend and I got it after having the same dish) and blatant re-bottling of left wine put this place down a notch or two. So go there but only buy by the bottle (beer or wine) and keep to the non meat dishes for food and you'll have a happy and healthy time.
