Music lovers searching for a bit of badass rock and roll among the lounges of Paris will want to check out Les Furieux (The Furious), where thirsty hordes of long-hairs and punkers gather to pound cheap beer and flash their tattoos.
Besides the constant fashion show provided by the pierced and leather-clad patrons, the rustic bar features monthly exhibits by local artists, as well as stone walls decked out in a collection of concert posters, including one gem signed by Debbie Harry.
A U-shaped bar surrounded by leopard-print bar stools provides plenty of space for the alternative collegians and laid-back metal-heads who stop in for a few Happy Hour specials, while head-bangers and artsy types in the mood to really shake up the evening can choose their poison from an impressive list of absinthe.
Even when the Jäger’s flowing fast, though, the atmosphere stays friendly, with patrons more intent on downing drinks and rocking out to the night’s playlist of power metal than getting into a bar brawl.
Paris may be the city of candlelit dinners and quiet little wine bars, but down at Les Furieux, rock rules.
Alternative types, punks, goths, metal heads, hipsters, and university students, early to late 20s.
Playlist of rock, metal, and punk.
Happy Hour daily 6–8pm.
Beer €3.30+, wine €3.30+/glass or €15+/bottle, cocktails €7.60+.
Casual: jeans, band t-shirts, Converse, piercings and tattoos.
Saturdays for a busy scene and a great early Happy Hour crowd.
Another good option to split the evening is La Mécanique Ondulatoire (8 Passage Thière), a nearby grunge bar.
