Party Earth Le Coeur Fou Review

The Scene

"Le Coeur Fou in Paris' 2eme is a cool bar great for starting a barhopping night or chilling with a hip crowd. Find out why ""it's just Parisssss"" at Party Earth."

Nestled along a barhopping-friendly stretch of Rue Montmartre, Le Coeur Fou is an unassuming joint that attracts big crowds of twenty-somethings with its basic but solid selection of booze and cozy, low-key atmosphere.

Lit by little more than red, purple, and ivory candles holed into the chipped white walls and scattered around tiny wooden tables, this intimate bar is host to many date nights and after-work cocktail gatherings for the area’s young and invariably hip residents.

A square alcove features a bench and clusters of multicolored pillows that invite friends to huddle over a €20 bottle of wine, while a tall wood bar laced with yellow Christmas lights is well stocked both with liquor and a number of odd trinkets – including a blue motorcycle helmet and a poster ordering hippies to enter in the back (“NO EXCEPTIONS”).

During the evening, smokers zigzag between the tightly-packed interior and the sidewalk patio, checking out the rotating gallery installations as they go, but the space can be hard to navigate come Thursdays when normally hushed conversation escalates to a lively chatter and packs of bobos pile in to start their night.

Frequented by a chic clientele that dresses well with that classic-casual Parisian air, Le Coeur Fou maintains an unpretentious vibe that’s as well-suited to pre-gaming as it is to blissfully chatting long into the night.

Tip from Emma:

Le Coeur Fou does not have a Happy Hour, so it’s less crowded from 4 to 8pm when nearby bars offer drink deals. Drop in at this time, get a cheap aperitif, and beat the crowds to the pillow-laden bench in the back.

  • Crowd

    Well-traveled professionals, multi-lingual hipsters, cool creative types, slick singles, and groups of artsy friends gathered to meet like-minded people, 20s to early 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient funk, soul, and underground hip-hop. No Top 40 in this spot. DJ sets every Thursday.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No food.

  • Prices

    Beer €4–€5.50, wine €3.50–€4.20/glass or €22–€25/bottle, cocktails €8, champagne €10/glass or €85/bottle, planche aperitifs: cheese and delicatessen €7.50, fruit juices €3.50.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Trendy casual: cargos, sweaters, vests, fitted jeans, tights, flats, scarves t-shirts.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday through Saturday nights for a guaranteed lively crowd all night, though even midweek can be unexpectedly packed with after-work locals who can’t wait for the weekend.

  • Close By

    Experimental Cocktail Club (37 Rue Saint-Sauveur ) offers a more upscale bar experience and incredibly intricate cocktail creations, though patrons pay for the privilege.
