Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
For those looking to drink and mingle without any flashy lights or erotic undertones, the Duplex is the place for you. Tucked away on a side street in the Marais, its shabby appearance doesn’t instill confidence, but that’s part of the charm. Upstairs you’ll find a smoking room and a small balcony for surveying the rest of the ground floor crowd, a mix of 20-40 somethings looking to hang out in a stress-free environment. Hipsters and bikers join preps and expats around the central counter for affordable beer and wine from the bar. Grab a stool if you can, as seating is rare, but it’s best to circulate around the cramped quarters until you find a spot that suits you. The bar also plays host to rotating art shows, so that means a night of drinking can also count as a 'cultural outing', right?
