Beaurepaire - Le Mellotron
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The Beaurepaire restaurant has a traditional French bistro vibe with its brick walls, wooden furniture, red curtains and zinc bar. Set up in 2012 just a few steps from the canal Saint-Martin, the venue is an annex of Café A, a restaurant already well-loved by Parisians.
Equipped with turntables and a proper sound system, the Beaurepaire hosts soul, funk, jazz and hip hop nights throughout the week. Beyond great music, this restaurant offers an attractive menu that changes every day, featuring carefully crafted dishes such as mushroom cream soup or spaghetti with a squid ink, tomato, and black garlic sauce. Choose from a select list of organic wines and craft beers, and top it all off with a fig and almond cream tart. If you’ve just popped in for a quick drink then the plate of sardines or the mixed platter (€15) should help soak up your aperitif.
Prices are reasonable: the plat du jour will set you back just €11.50 including a coffee, and the lunch menus are priced between €14 and €19. The Beaurepaire is definitely a spot worth checking out.
