The ‘yellow raincoat’ is a cool but not overly pretentious new bar from the team behind La Droguerie Moderne. It looks more like a hip Swedish apartment rather than anything to do with stormy weather, kitted out in vintage 50s furniture on an original 30s tiled floor. The homely vibe is completed by a bed-turned-sofa in the back room, complete with bedside lamp and table. In the front, a few second-hand armchairs, an old typewriter on a desk, and a big communal table for groups. The bar menu is nothing out of the ordinary, but there’s a good tapas menu and the happy hour prices are excellent: €2.50 for a glass of wine or a kir, €3 a pint and €5 a cocktail. Prices shoot up rather later on, with pints at €5.
You can look forward to a slew of cultural events as well, with short film screenings every first Tuesday of the month and DJ sets at weekends. The music covers electro, soul, afrobeat, reggae, rock’n’roll and ’80s hip-hop.
