This cinema-themed bar has a punchy, irreverent attitude (the name is a play on the film ‘Les Tontons Flingeurs’ and ‘bringeur’, ‘cheeky’). The walls are covered in quotes from the likes of Michel Audiard and Jean Carmet, while at the back of the room films from the ’50s and ’60s are screened on to the wall (without sound). Beers, wines and spirits – we recommend absinthe or rum – are well-priced, and there’s a serviceable menu. There are set lunchtime menus from €14 to €18, and snacks available all day long – sandwiches, hot dogs and boards of cheese or charcuterie from €6.50 to €15. Hidden at the bottom of the Rue Boyer, which already has the Maroquinerie, the Café des Sports and the Bellevilloise, Les Tontons has a favourable position to attract foot traffic, and the added draw of occasional live gigs, film showings and big sports matches projected onto a giant screen.
