Le Fanfaron is a small rock bar a short walk from Bastille. Concert and film posters adorn the walls as the proprietor spins records on the single turntable.
It’s a definite local spot, made even more cosy by the enforced proximity to fellow drinkers, most of which drink cheap pints of Pelforth or take the occasional shot of Jack.
Monday to Saturday, 7pm – 2am, no credit cards and one toilet. Its a rock’n’roll dive by candlelight.
Impress fellow hipsters: if the world of the Internet is to be believed, this spot is a favourite haunt of rock royalty Lou Doillon, daughter of Jane Birkin.
