Rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud is like the rebellious little sister of Rue Oberkampf, full of tiny alternative bars favoured by young rockers and rowdy crowds. The UFO welcomes this scene with open arms and revolutionary caipirinhas (€3.50 during happy hour) alternated with whole rainbows of crazy shots as the night wears on. Once mostly rock, garage and punk, this bar now also delights its regulars with northern soul, ska and funk. On weekends, the DJs in the downstairs area send the dancing crowds completely wild in an atmosphere that’s always cheerful, if sometimes humid when things get crowded. The French-American team that run the bar are very friendly, mixing freely with the crowds and generally enjoying the party.
