Le Red House

Le Red House, dominated by a majestic bull’s skull hanging over the bar, has the air of a Texan saloon in the middle of Bastille. The clientele are neither uber-trendy nor cattle herders: the crowd is colourful, young, lively, loud and out for a good time. There’s a good live DJ almost every day, spinning rock, punk, funk and electro, and the place never seems to be empty – luckily the venue is huge, with two connected rooms with exposed beams, each equipped with their own bars.

The main attraction at Red House is the happy hour from 5pm-8pm – €5 a pint, €6 for house cocktails, prepared with quality liquors. Some of them are over-sweetened, but the good ones are great: we tip our Stetsons to the Wild West Side (tequila, chilli, cucumber and lime), the Red House Flambeau (bourbon, apricot brandy, spicy syrup, lemon and ginger). Also look out for the menu of off the wall seasonal cocktails – in winter 2012, they include the Fucking Legend (Mezcal, Chartreuse, falernum syrup, lime and mint).

This bar, located right near Metro Ledru-Rollin, is popular with the under 30s crowd! Mainly rock and electro music play throughout the two spaces where you can drink, chat with friends, or play on the Game of Thrones pin ball machine! The cocktails are fun and creative (although pricey at 10-12 Euros each)! I especially liked the Champagne punch with raspberry purée, pinot noir and champagne! Nice place to chill and listen to some good music in a bar that isn't too fancy or hipster.
