The Parmentier area is already stiff with good bars, but this one is still well worth a detour from your favourite. Opened by the team behind L’Alimentation Générale (just next door), Touller Outillage used to be a toolshop but, like many of the area’s businesses, succumbed to the new wave of local land use – eating and drinking. The result has been a cluster of bars and restaurants with their names referencing former ironmongers, body shops and mirror traders, their walls decorated with artefacts from the past – a nsotalgic charm that fits in well with the current taste for industrial décor, raw brick, metal, second-hand and retro.
And so it is with Touller Outillage; the bar has kept the pretty, big front windows and industrial fittings. It’s a pretty background, and the place doesn’t get too overcrowded, rare in the area. The menu offers tapas and cheese or charcuterie boards at reasonable prices, and an excellent selection of natural wines.
