The Scene

With its signature red-and-white striped awning, warm orange lighting, and garrulous crowd, Le Bar du Marché manages to stand out on a delightful street chockfull of open-air bars and restaurants.

With its signature red-and-white striped awning, warm orange lighting, and garrulous crowd, Le Bar du Marché manages to stand out on a delightful street chockfull of open-air bars and restaurants.

Always aglow with activity, this lively Parisian hotspot could be considered the headquarters of the “bobo” phenomenon – a mix of bohemian and bourgeoisie – a theme complemented by the overalls- and beret-sporting staff.

The bar itself tends to split down the middle between one “bo” and the other, with dim lighting and vintage jazz posters creating a mellow lounge vibe for the bohemian set inside, where they enjoy simple bistro fare and fervently discuss art and politics.

The bourgeois part of the equation, conversely, seems to prefer the open air and liberating space of the outdoor tables, with dolled up ladies sipping wine and resting their feet after a long day of shopping next to dapper dudes wearing sunglasses even when it’s cloudy.

Regardless of their persuasion, the customers at Le Bar are outgoing, hip, and well dressed, and flock to this place – especially on the weekends – to enjoy its eccentric but civilized social scene.

Tip from Adriana:

The authentic French atmosphere of this place is unsurpassable. Le Bar du Marché embodies the café society scene that’s all about lingering and people-watching – and since the bar sits right on a major pedestrian intersection, it’s definitely worth the wait for an outdoor table.

  • Crowd

    Mix of young professionals and trendy liberals, late 20s to 40s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Loud conversation and great people-watching usually accompanied by ambient French music. Street performers make the rounds of the bars.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Basic dishes including omelets, toasted ham and cheese sandwiches, and hot dogs.

  • Prices

    Menu €5–€7, daily special €10. Beer €3–€4, wine and cocktails €5+, coffee €2.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Smart casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    There is no Happy Hour, but the bar is always busy in the late afternoons, as well as on Fridays and Saturdays around 11pm.
