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.

The temple to indie pop in Paris, Pop In is like a little island of London style in the lively Rue Amelot. Wedging a hip crowd of well-coiffed youth in checked shirts and leather jackets into its cramped space, the bar plays pop-rock from the Beatles to cutting-edge indie groups. On the first floor, there’s an idealised British salon with a piano and old second hand sofas, which is a lovely place for a beer. Illogically, you have to take the stairs from here to reach the underground performance space, where every evening little groups come and do their thing. The music is free, and the quality can be a little uneven, but it’s always a pleasure to discover an international and unpretentious alternative Parisian music scene. Come early on the weekends, as it’s full to bursting during happy hour.

The place seems not working. We decided to spend our last night in Paris in this pub as well as in some other... however were disappointed when faced a closed door :-(

Funky bohemian club frequented by talented musicians. Made up of several small rooms up and down; a front room bar, 2 upstairs sitting rooms including a nicely out of tune piano, and a music room downstairs in the back. Frequented by talented musicians. We were there on a Tuesday night, saw 3 good original bands. Nice vibe, good beer selection on tap, we had a blast.
