Fédération Française de l'Apéritif
Time Out says
Enjoy the best hour of the day at this eccentric shop dedicated to all things aperitif.
Following the FFF (French Football Federation), the FFC (cycling) and the FFE (horseriding), finally a French Federation (read: shop/bar) dedicated to that most important of post-work rituals, the aperitif. Move beyond the fashionable midnight blue shopfront and tricolore logo and you’ll find a large refrigerated counter filled with cheeses and cured meats from various small producers. On the shelves, meanwhile, there’s a wide range of treats like pâtés from Label Rouge le Fougeray (€4.90), or for the really brave, crunchy insects from Jimini’s. Drinks include things like artisanal ciders, craft beers from Parisian brewery BapBap, and a brilliant selection of wines, including eco-friendly and natural bottles like Damien Coquelet’s Morgon Côtes du Py and the Vignoble Réveille. Prices are appealing, starting from just €8 a bottle, while the small tables at the back of the shop are an ideal spot to lap up whatever’s just taken your fancy (with an additional corkage fee of €5).
