The name is Spanish for 'freestyle wrestling' – if you don't know this, you may be in for a surprise if you turn up on a Friday night. Two Fridays a week, La Lucha Libre morphs into a wrestling arena for local machos looking to let off some steam. Punters gather in this lively den in the 5th arrondissement (far from the sport's native Mexico) to cheer on their favourite beefcake while sipping on Coronas. The menu is strong on spirits, and even offers food (the usual salads and burgers for €10 or thereabouts), but the spectacle of burly men holding each other in headlocks should offer all the carnal nourishment you need.
