Pigalle - 9eme, Paris –
A no-frills dive in the heart of bustling Pigalle, the aptly-named Le Sans Souci (“no worries”) and its carefree energy attract a laid-back clientele of chain-smoking hipsters and after-work revelers ready to relax and imbibe champagne.
A classic French space featuring white walls, large windows, and the requisite clutter of handwritten chalkboard menus, the tiny bar manages to cram in an incredible number of artists and musicians in the market for affordable drafts of Guinness and lively conversation while bobbing to the DJ spinning The Black Keys.
Sometime around midnight, the increasingly boozy crowd converges on the sidewalk for more animated chitchat while drinking their faces off with more rounds of cheap bubbly.
Perfect for both a quick late night appearance before heading off to the clubs or for hours of drinking and chatting with the other tipsy young professionals, Le Sans Souci promises a quirky night out with a little bit of something for everyone.
Jeans and Converse work fine for a night of boozing at Le Sans Souci, but if you plan to stop in at Chez Moune, you’ll want to spiff it up a bit or the bouncers will kick you to the curb.
Young professionals, international hipsters, drunken intellectuals, artists, musicians, and club kids, early 20s to late 30s+.
Playlist of everything from The Cure to Lady Gaga. Occasional local DJs on Saturdays.
French bistro fare including charcuterie plates, steaks, and salmon tartare.
Menu €7–€15. Beer €3, wine €3, cocktails €5.
Casual hipster wear, jeans, sneakers. For the crowd heading to Chez Moune after Le Sans Souci, nice jeans, dresses, heels.
Thursdays through Saturdays for the weekend crowds.
Chez Moune (54 Rue Jean-Baptiste Pigalle) is directly across the street and draws a great dancing crowd on Friday and Saturday nights.
