Party Earth Rue de Lappe Review

The Scene

Located in the heart of the Bastille just between Rue de la Roquette and Rue de Charonne, the short but vibrant Rue de Lappe offers dozens of bars and restaurants that attract locals, expats, and students alike.

Located in the heart of the Bastille just between Rue de la Roquette and Rue de Charonne, the short but vibrant Rue de Lappe offers dozens of bars and restaurants that attract locals, expats, and students alike.

One of the few areas in Paris devoid of velvet ropes and long lines, the street is ideally suited for a night of barhopping and exploring the diverse establishments.

Those who start the evening early will find plenty of affordable restaurants serving everything from Thai and Cuban to Italian and Indian.

Bar options are equally diverse, and there is indeed something for everyone. Le Bazar Egyptien and the surfing-themed Bar des Ferrailleurs are top picks for those who want to be immersed in another culture, while the charming Some Girls Bar (29 Rue de Lappe) features a one-of-a-kind shrine to Mick Jagger, and Le Megalo (6 Rue de Lappe) provides a haven for Goths.

Philosophical types may want to wander into the existential Bastide (18 Rue de Lappe), while the more down-to-earth can fill up on beer and burgers at Route 66 (8 Rue de Lappe).

Every bar and restaurant may have its own personality, but they all combine to contribute to Rue de Lappe’s lively party atmosphere.

Tip from Jonah:

In terms of food and drink, just about anything can be found on Rue de Lappe, and at a great price too. However, some of the food stands close up around 11pm, which can be a disaster when you’re out barhopping! In a pinch, try the late-night pizza stand on Rue de Roquette.

  • Crowd

    International and local, all types, 18 to 80.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Some bars feature DJs. Occasional live music on weekends.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    There are just as many restaurants as bars, and most are just as affordable. Most bars participate in the common Happy Hour from 6–9pm.

  • Prices

    Entrées €12+. Beer €5+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Weekends are the best bet for a lively time, day or night.

Rue de Lappe User Reviews

good for a night out
Tara R. Dec 12, 2012
Walking from Place des Vosges to the Rue de Lappe is one of my favorite memories of Paris as our afternoon-into-evening tourist activity. The nightlife here is quite hopping, even if it’s predominantly hopping with tourists, and as Anglicized as everything is, you will never forget you’re in France. We ate crepes at the crepe stand (stereotypical I know) and then proceeded to drink lots and lots of wine at a bar whose name I have long since forgotten, but I remember the night was a good one, and it was a relief not to have to head back to the hotel to change clothes. No tight dresses and stumbling in high heels here!
Exactly What You'd Expect
Sara G. Aug 10, 2012
Rue de Lappe is exactly as the review describes. I found it to be a bit touristy and subsequently, overpriced (expect to see and hear a lot of "specials" advertised in English), but it's hard not to have fun hopping from one bar to another all within feet of each other. At night, it might as well be a pedestrian walkway - you are crazy to try and drive through the sea of kids on the street. The area is conveniently close to multiple metro stops and Blvd Richard Lenoir - so there are cabs everywhere. If you can take a moment to pause during partying to see the nearby Opera House lit up, be sure to do so - it's beautiful. Once you're tanked up and ready to find your way back, wait the line at the corner crepe place. It goes faster than you think, and the crepes are worth the wait.
