The ideal bar for a nightcap (or midnight feast).

What should I drink? A pint of Pelforth.
Banal during the day, Le Tambour is the late-night haunt of all the neighbourhood’s night owls and insomniacs, staying open until 3.30am. The atmosphere is warm, though it can get a little crazy between the drinkers draped over the bar and the gruff, strapping barmen. But it’s always fun mixing in with this eccentric nightlife – more often than not you feel like you’re in a sailor’s tavern, decorated with a jumble of salvaged road signs, rather than in a bar in the centre of Paris. Here, you can satisfy any cravings for andouillette, a malodorous intestine sausage, for pig’s feet or simply for steak, at any hour of the day or night. To go with these rustic dishes, order a box or a bottle of wine à la ficelle (you only pay for what you drink). As you’d expect, the low prices increase slightly in the early hours.

Très bon services , très bonne nourriture , patron très sympa et beau, très bel endroit accueil formidable
Yeah - a really nice unpretentious place. Great to snuggle in to (not too many of those in Paris, unlike German cities) and while away the hours over a beer. Friendly with a nice crowd. Bar staff are obviously enjoying themselves in this busy place. Should have got 4 or even 5 stars from me but food poisoning (both my friend and I got it after having the same dish) and blatant re-bottling of left wine put this place down a notch or two. So go there but only buy by the bottle (beer or wine) and keep to the non meat dishes for food and you'll have a happy and healthy time.
