There’s a definite music theme in La Folie en Tête: instruments from around the world line the walls and the background sound flits between jazz, world music and rock, plus the occasional live performance. Early evening regulars come by for a tipple and a quick board game; but from happy hour onwards (6pm-8pm), the volume pumps up and folks pile in for the flavoured rums and house punch (laced with coconut, ginger and orange flower). You don’t have to dress to impress here (the fauna is grungy), but do dress in layers: La Folie en Tête is small and gets hot and stuffy, especially on Saturday nights, so you’ll be stripping off your jumper and jacket well before the clock strikes midnight.
