Rue de Lappe
Bastille / Oberkampf - 11eme, Paris –
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.
International and local, all types, 18 to 80.
Some bars feature DJs. Occasional live music on weekends.
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.
Entrées €12+. Beer €5+.
Weekends are the best bet for a lively time, day or night.
