Le Lock Groove
© EP / Time Out Paris

In case the giant Frank Zappa poster on the toilet door leaves any room for doubt, the Lock Groove is a rock bar through and through – the kind of place where only vinyls are played and the bartender will happily engage you in a half-hour chat about the relative merits of Captain Beefheart's late albums. Situated just off the lively Rue Daguerre, it makes for a pleasant alternative to the self-conscious bars that dot Montparnasse (Café Tournesol, we're looking at you). The pints are affordable (€3.50 between 6 and 9pm), the food passable (diner-inspired dishes, including decent burgers at €8-€12) and the décor genuinely antique – by which we mean dial phones grandma-friendly floral wallpaper, not expensive retro-kitsch crap. Word of advice: pass through the front area and plonk yourself down in the cosier back room.

Love the retro/psychedelic decor, the awesome music and the reasonably priced drinks! They also make pretty good burgers and the young staff are friendly and welcoming. Definitely the coolest bar in the 14th arrondissement!
