2nd arrondissement


La Movida, 12 rue Marie –Stuart tel 0142219860
Open 21-dawn. Closed on Sundays.
This is the most “puro flamenco” cave in Paris100% Andalusia! The place is very sympathetic and the reception is incredible. Pure original flamencos, sipping a good Spanish wine, see the owner play the guitar. You’re not in Paris but in Sevilla! Even if you want a late bite I recommend you the tapas, particularly the “tortilla de patatas” for 0.55 € . Menu for 21 € .

Kitty O’Shea, 10 rue des Capucines tel 0140150030. Open every day Noon-Midnight. Closed on Christmas.
Here we arrive in Dublin. Where is Paris? Customs and behaviour are Irish 100 %. You drink standing and the clientele is very convivial, you will never stay alone. You speak only English? Perfect! Everybody does here.  This is no “imitation” or “newly done old”! Guinness 3.50 €  half a pint. If your sick and tired of noise you can retire on the first floor for some more quietness. On weekends you need about 15 minutes to get at the counter, beware of your toes!

The Frog and Rosbif, 116 rue Saint-Denis tel 0142363473
Now it is England! The Anglo-Saxons invested strongly in Paris! Open every day from noon to 2 AM. Different kinds of beer: white, amber, blond or red, 100% non-pasteurised malt. And everything is home made!!!! They are unanimously praised (0.6 €  a demi, 5.50 €  a pint). Is this a guaranty of quality?? I will not give my opinion since the place is visited in a strong proportion by Anglo-Saxon clientele! English chips, English service, and English cuisine (?). Think what you want ;--)
Menu for10.75 €  and Sunday brunch from 8 € 

Tight Johnny’s, The Irish Pub, 55 rue Montmartre tel 0142339133. Every day from 16-1 AM.
More Irish than this and you die! On weekends amateurs play typical Irish instruments like the flageolet, banjo or uileann pipes. Huge crowds on weekends too. Drinks are not expensive.

La Baraka, 6 rue Marie-Stuart tel 0142361056.Open every day except Sunday. From 17.00-2.00 AM. Mostly jazz and rock. Very easy acquaintance making in this mad place Stand a drink all around and you have friends for life!


The Rex Club, 5 boulevard Poissonniere tel 0142211193. Open 23.00-6.00 AM. Closed in August.
This place used to be a rock concert shrine but this is over. The REX is now exclusively discs playing and you come to listen to the music. All possible variants of techno in a hall, a little austere and cold, with a capacity of 500 people. Here you find all the “flyers”, underground or not, and there is an ambience of conviviality and cult for “music above all”.

Thanx God I’m a V.I.P, 60 rue Greneta tel 0140284314.
For those who want a special kick…a very special place. An address not to give to everybody! Sylvie Chateigner, the incontestable drag queen of Parisian nights, welcomes you in her mutton dress. Very special clientele like drag queens, piercing adepts….
