Paris is the city of light and the city of love, a magical place that everyone should visit once in their life. You can not afford to dine at the starred restaurants of the French capital and drink champagne on the Champs-Elysées? Well, despite its reputation, Paris can be very affordable , even when you spend in the night world: you just have to know where to look. So where are these mythical and economical Parisian bars? Here, just for you the best bars in Paris for cheap, but very stylish!
1. Rosa Happiness
Nestled inside the Buttes-Chaumont Park, in the heights of the city, on a hill, the Rosa Bonheur is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful bars in Paris. The Parisians meet here to drink and dance on the terrace surrounded by lush greenery. In the 19th century, this beautiful building served as an outdoor dance hall. Nowadays, the atmosphere is a little more rowdy, especially on Sunday afternoons during the summer, when the queue to enter the establishment exceeds the entrance to the park.
If the crowd is too big or the line is too long, go buy something to drink in shops and plant on the grassy slope in front of the bar to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and the view of the city.
2. Paname Brewing Co.
Literally perched on the waters of the Quai de Loire in north-east Paris, Paname Brewing Company is the best brewery in the city: it serves delicious craft beers at affordable prices. The sunny terrace is a raft, floating on the waters of the canal. Here, summer days are perfect for drinking good beers in the sun with friends, or watching the sunset over the water. For the colder months, there is a glass-walled dining room overlooking the canal, its life and activity.
For several years, we thought that the Lavomatic was a simple laundry, before a friend revealed the secret behind one of the washing machines in the back. Open the secret door at the back of the laundry room, then climb a winding staircase to the third floor to arrive in this bright bar near the Canal Saint-Martin. The best part is that it’s not like the other hidden bars: the place is noisy, fun and friendly, which is all the more surprising when you compare it to the neon-lit launderette by which you have entered!
4. Ground Control
This ephemeral bar on the theme of trains appears every summer in Paris. The Ground Control chose the outdoor terrace of the Halle Charolais as a temporary place for 2017, not far from the Gare de Lyon. Here you will find bar areas, food trucks in train wagons, DJs, workshops and an interesting crowd of Parisians. According to a rumor, this time the space could remain open all year.
