Marais - 3eme / 4eme, Paris –
Yono is an elegant, well-designed restaurant and bar on the busy Rue Vieille-du-Temple in the heart of the Marais.
Stepping in from the bustle of the road, patrons encounter a spacious interior of cool stone, intricate mosaics of colored tiles, and soaring ceilings that give the space a breezy and welcoming atmosphere.
The first level features a long bar and seating area where the staff hustles to serve the young professional and largely gay crowd that gathers for after-work drinks and light conversation before heading up to the restaurant on the second floor.
The vibe in the bar and restaurant may seem muted, but once customers make their way downstairs to the cave later on, they discover a whole other side to Yono.
On most nights, DJs and live music entertain late-night guests in this underground room – which also features a dance floor and another small bar – and when there’s no DJ or band, two giant screens built into the walls play music videos.
Either way, patrons flock to Yono for after-dinner dancing, especially on the weekends when the always stylish crowd flows onto the street and stays lively through the early morning.
Young local professionals, mostly gay, 20s to mid-30s. An after-work crowd for Happy Hour and dinner.
Soft music creates a serene Asian ambiance in the early evenings. Things get louder and more techno later in the night when the bar hosts DJs or live bands.
A fusion menu features beautifully presented Spanish tapas, Asian salads, and classic French entrées.
Tapas €5–€6, charcuterie and cheese plates €8–€14. Cocktails €8–€10.
Business or smart casual in the evenings, sexier clubwear later on.
Friday and Saturday nights around 10pm.
