Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Far from the hipster crowd, this café promises cheap drinks and eats in a cosy space.
The Jaurès neighbourhood retains a down-to-earth swagger not found in the more chichi environs nearby on the Canal Saint-Martin. Bicyclette Café, a neighbourhood bar tucked away on Rue de Chaumont, captures this feel nicely. You won’t find Scandinavian-inspired décor but rather all the trappings of a traditional space: barrels by the door and a zinc counter, as well as affordable food and of course drinks. The beers are €4.50 for a pint all day long, and the plat du jour ranges from €8-€11. Take a seat and you’ll find yourself among a mixed crowd from employees destressing after work to friends digging in to the decent burgers on offer.
