This stretch between Bastille and Nation rarely gets the recognition it deserves.

It’s fast become far cooler (and thankfully lesser understood) than the Canal or Haute Marais. There still isn’t anywhere to get an artisan café latte and maybe that is a good thing, because everything still feels very local. It’s what we like about the place.

Oysters at Le Baron Rouge

Weekends until 4pm – and not a second later – you can come and quaff inexpensive wine from the barrel and partake in an all-out Oyster binge (during the winter). Busy, loud and quintessentially French, be prepared to eat your molluscs on the street.

Full English at The Bottle Shop

Hungover? We got you covered. The Bottle Shop serves €5 Bloody Mary’s all day Sunday, whilst you wait for a table for their insane full English breakfast. Perennially packed with tattoo’d bearded locals, they serve up brunch until 4pm. During the week this pub-type spot is just as excellent for a beer.

Produce at Marché d’Aligre

Could this be the cheapest market in Paris? We always seem to leave with a favourable produce to change ratio. The quality is not always what you would find in a Michelin starred establishment but it’s far from awful. Don’t forget to peek into the covered market for one of Paris’ best butchers.

Place d’Aligre, 75012

Rock at Le Fanfaron

Small, loud and generally full of weirdos, Le Fanfaron is the best kind of rock’n’roll dive bar. You will be listening to records as you sip on your inexpensive pint, whilst you admire the myriad of concert and movie posters that adorn the walls. A great place to get started on the weekends.

Cocktails at Red House

Ain’t no better place to get cracking cocktails for €6 on Happy Hour. Red House is the perfect mix of high-brow drinks in a low-brow setting. The music is always awesome and the salsa always spicy. The team are also awesome. Kicking drinks for lovers of booze.

1 B Rue de la Forge Royale, 75011

Dinner at DUNE

Stop in for a set menu lunch from Monday to Saturday, just €16.50 for two courses or €21 for entrée-plat-desert. You are just as welcome to while away the wee hours with a boozy cocktail or glass of natural wine at the bar, until 2am Tuesday to Saturday.
