This Parc de la Villette bar feel like a gigantic, colourful German beer garden.
This gigantic fire-engine red bar with its huge terrace fits in well with the rest of the Parc de la Villette’s gaudy architecture. Set between imposing trees in the 19th arrondissement park, this colourful enormo-bar exudes a trendy atmosphere redolent of a Berlin beer garden, but drinks prices are unfortunately Paris standard (€6.50 a pint, €7 after 10pm). Still, the excellent tapas (€4-€12) and kebabs (€8-€18) go down much better than a sticky late-night currywurst. The bar also regularly hosts affiliated clubbing collectives, which is the perfect time to visit – with so much space, you really can let it all hang out.
