Cemetery
“Sounds weird to recommend a cemetery, but this one feels more like a park out of Tim Burton's imagination. very lovely and not crowded at all.”

“Set up near Ménilmontant Métro station and nestled in a corner of Paris that’s quickly rising to become one of the city’s hip, modern hang-outs, you’ll find La Bellevilloise. By day, it’s an art and cultural center for exhibitions, film screenings, concerts and events, with a ambiently lit café. By night, it becomes a trendy indie clubbing experience. Believe it or not, the venue was the site of Paris’s first workers’ cooperative and has been an important cultural landmark since 1877. Today, the building has two levels, a terrace and sofas to snuggle on with friends.”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“Just one of the best rooftoop bars in Paris. A very cool bar with great drinks and an outstanding view. When it's sunny and warm in Paris, great place to go with friends or whoever and have a bottle of rose, stay till late and watch the sunset. Drinks are decent, and fairly priced. They serve very good cocktails.”

Music Venue
“La Maroquinerie's former life as a leather factory is little in evidence these days. It's now a bright café and bar in competition with La Bellevilloise, with a coveted downstairs concert venue that hosts the odd literary debate and a wealth of cool music acts. It's home to the Inrocks Indie Club nights, but there are still traces of its world music roots. The food is excellent - you can eat your way through the menu quite reasonably for around €25 - and wine sourced from across France starts at €3 a glass. The interior, with exposed brick, is cosy, and in summer chirpy locals invade the shaded terrace.”
