Les Halles / Rivoli - 1er / 2eme, Paris –
Classy and relaxed, the venue exudes a Big Apple vibe with its indoor/outdoor setup and sidewalk seating, popular with students and daytrippers who settle in on the comfy black and red chairs to share some fries, have a smoke, and chat over a couple of beers.
Exposed brick and photos of city scenes, yellow taxis, and green street signs continue the NYC motif inside, where amiable couples and local retail workers kick back in leather booths to sip mango smoothies and Kit Kat milkshakes, order a burger from the Franco-American menu, and watch Top 40 music videos on one of the three flat-screen TVs.
Although a DJ shows up on Friday and Saturday nights, most of the attention is on the sleek wood bar, where chatty mixologists whip up mojitos for thirsty students and tired tourists.
Low key and relaxing, Promenade Lounge is a great place for expats and locals alike to grab some comfort food and put their feet up after a long day of shopping, work, or sightseeing.
Mellow mix of students, groups of friends, couples, expats, tourists, and work buddies from local businesses, early 20s+.
Chill soul, jazz, and light R&B during the day. DJ spins house, Latin, and R&B Friday and Saturday nights. Three flat-screen TVs tuned to Top 40 music videos.
Franco-American menu featuring burgers and pasta. Appetizers after 4pm, Sunday brunch buffet. Happy Hour daily 4–9pm.
Breakfast €5+, Sunday brunch buffet €25, appetizers €6+, entrées €12, two courses €21.50, three courses €26.50. Beer €7, wine €3.50+/glass or €15–€60/bottle, cocktails €9, milkshakes €8.

Thursdays at 4pm for a relaxed afternoon of appetizers and cheap cocktails, and Friday or Saturday nights at 8pm for dinner and the DJ.
Musée l’Orangerie in the Jardin des Tuileries is a great place to check out a few masterpieces, including Monet’s “Waterlilies,” before heading to Promenade Lounge.
