L’Oya is an atypical bar in a quartier already stuffed with them – the 13th arrondissement near the Gobelins Metro. Not so much a bar as a creative café, people love to come here around teatime to play one of the 500 board games that the owners have collected from all over the world. For €5, you can have drink and play the game of your choice for as long as you like, simply adding €3 for each new game. The owners love explaining the rules, and will happily spend hours disputing paragraph 3 of article 4 in the rulebook of some obscure pastime. The games are also available to buy, some affordable, some with prices befitting their rarity and beauty. Definitely one to visit.
