The 100<br />best bars in Paris

This is one of Time Out's 100 best bars in Paris. Click here to see the full list.

La Palette is the café-bar of choice for the beau-est of the Beaux-Arts students who study at the venerable institution around the corner. Don’t be surprised if you stumble across young couples stealing kisses in the wonderfully preserved art deco back room, perhaps overcome by the art on the walls and the sprit of decadence. And perhaps trying to distract themselves from the prices: a glass of Chablis here sets you back €6, a demi €4.50. But you’re paying for the vintage of the place as much as the drinks; these premises were once frequented by Jim Morrison, Picasso and Ernest Hemingway. Grab a spot on the leafy terrace if you can – there's formidable competition for seats.



Address: 43 rue de Seine

Opening hours: 9am-2am Mon-Sat. Closed Aug

Well I am not a local nor famous , I know La Palette since 1980 , When I went there for the first time, François le garçon , came to my small terrace table and he said " WHAT DO YOU WANT " "Qu'est -ce que tu veux?" even not VOUS ! Since than I loved thih place. Charming nice bar bistrot.


I hated everything about this place. Surly, unfriendly 'service' - tap water passed off as Evian - hideous food. If you're not a local (or famous) then you're not welcome.
