The team behind Le Syndicat light up Belleville with their punch bar.

Slap bang in the heart of Belleville, La Commune is already bursting with punters clamouring for a taste of their amber rum. The famed team behind Le Syndicat have kept to their winning formula: a clandestine shopfront and a hip-hop soundtrack. Good-looking waiters wearing wildly-patterned trousers bustle around the jungle-like terrace, filled with plants and cosy armchairs. It’s a slight caricature of the ‘bush’ vibe but we get it: goodbye to the Paris drizzle and aloha liquid sun.

For about €11 per person, you get your share of a giant silver punch bowl, filled with concoctions like the Tierquar with Marie-Galante rum, Rooibos tea, Martinican rum, lemon juice, elderflower liqueur, champagne, pomace brandy and calavados. It’s tasty, balanced and oh-so-dangerously-drinkable. The Mate mon Métisse (Jamaican pepper, armagnac brandy and fresh coriander) is also delicious. This is the kind of place you’ll want to bring your most fun friends.
