Bars & Cafes


Housed in a coal merchant's premises from the late 19th-century, Café Charbon has become the Ménilmontant district's trendiest bar. Superbly preserved period features are part of its special charm; thanks to high ceilings and large mirrors, the bar feels amazingly spacious, while subdued lighting and red lamps on the wooden tables provide a cozy touch. Food is tasty and typically French: steak with pepper sauce, cheese pasta, vegetarian salad. Jam-packed evenings and weekends, the bar is frequented by a young, smart, bohemian crowd.
