We went on a Saturday afternoon for a chilled out hang. There was a really fantastic live band playing, the decor was fabulous, and the atmosphere was relaxed yet lively. Some kiddos running around so those are obviously allowed. Lots of nooks and crannies to...settle into. The drinks skewed a little sugary it seemed so I stuck to Aperol spritzes. Walked around the area a little afterwards and there were plenty of good options nearby. Friendly staff as well!More

We had an amazing time at the Le Comptoir at the New Years. Although we had to wait in the line for about an hour, since we did not book in advance, but the ambience, the people, the overall mood inside more than made up...for it. Perfect place if you want to mingle and brush shoulders with the Parisian crowd, having a great time with 4 different bars serving drinks, dance floors and overall a truly eclectic experience. Paid about 30 Euros for entrance, which is 20 if you book in advance and includes a drink.More

It is a place you should definitely see if you are interested in experiencing alternative interiors. I love how simple and shabby are combined with richness of imagination. It has lovely details to be discovered in every corner and it can boast with clever use...of space. Good wine too! It’s hard to get in in the evenings but you should go in the daytime then!More

Really unusual and interesting place to stop for a relaxing drink. Not what you would expect and has to be seen to be believed. Fantastic !!!’

My companion and I spent a pleasant couple of hours here, sipping cocktails and chatting on a cold Thursday evening in December.

I love its idea of a secret garden - to get into the bar, you will walk into a closed, private alley and then you enter an ancient industrial loft decorated with Caribbean-themed pirate relics, complete with a sunken-shipwrecklike bar and its tropical jungle. The...Planteur cocktail as well as Cuba Suave and Rhum-Gingembre were absolutely delicious. The only thing I kind of dislike is the way you have to queue (like about 15-20 mins depending on how many people are there at the same time) to get your drinks instead of a waiter getting your orders - apparently it also only accepts cash (CMIIW) - but well, the ambiance and the drinks kind of make up for it. Price-wise a bit expensive but it’s Paris, you gotta cover the rent and manpower. The toilets are also veeery dirty and extremely smelly, maybe they should do something about it. Will be back whenever I’m around the corner only but won’t especially make a turn to go there.More

Buffet service, great sea-themed space, with a dedicated space where kids can play under baby-sitters' watch. Great good and nice vibes. Best to book in advance

I was told to visit this place by a bar owner at home. She considered Le Comptoir General to be inspiration for her bar and I can see why. The facilities are interesting and fun with multiple areas where you can have your drink. My...only concern is that you really can't get any drink you want as the ingredients at the bar are limited to those necessary to make the drinks on their menu.More

Went here quite early afternoon. Not much people but really nice place and great drink. Location a bit off but so worth the detour. I can imagine an evening there next time.

Really cool place, very fashion deco and loads of plants on the inside, besides they have air con so you feel good even in summer. Went here today with my gf and had a good frappe with soya milk. Had some quality time with her....I recommend a visit. Maybe the only drawback is that its a bit expensive but thneighbourhood is worth is as well. PS- Service not coming to table so seems a bit slowMore

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
