Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Open Café is an institution in the Marais where the gay community congregates at night before heading off in all directions. Centrally-located among all other hotspots, it’s a no-brainer to start a soirée, or to finish if the scene is good. Young and old, sporty and chic, local and foreign all collide for a happy hour (6-10pm) on pints followed by specials on Champagne until closing that provide the perfect social lubrication for the rest of the evening. A welcoming atmosphere makes this a good meeting point for friends or for a solo drink if you’re looking to make new acquaintances. Grab a table on the sidewalk for some casual cruising and people-watching – and don’t be afraid to have a coffee or light lunch during the day when Open embraces the 'café' aspect of its name.
