The Scene

The name La Fourmi (The Ant) suits this bar and Café well, an unassuming, hipster hotspot that passersby could easily miss amid sex shop-riddled Pigalle's larger distractions.

The name La Fourmi (The Ant) suits this bar and café well, an unassuming, hipster hotspot that passersby could easily miss amid sex shop-riddled Pigalle’s larger distractions.

Very much a local’s scene where artists and music lovers gather for drinks, the venue draws its eclectic crowd from the surrounding area, which – on top of the porn – is home to a good number of concert venues.

Just off the busy Rue Rochechouart, the space is a modernized French café with authentic wood furnishings updated with suspended wrought-iron lighting and a glass bottle chandelier.

There is nothing commercial about this joint, and its original industrial style sets a mellow mood for its genial, low-key clientele. Although it’s a popular hangout, the roomy interior and outdoor seating allows everyone enough breathing room to be comfortable, at least before 11pm – after that, the bar is usually packed to capacity.

Located directly across the street from Le Divan du Monde, La Fourmi serves as a fantastic pre- or post-show watering hole, but it’s also a great place to people-watch anytime.

Tip from Jonah:

Stop in and talk to some of the regulars to get the scoop on when the best bands will be playing in the area. Once plans are made, remember that La Fourmi is equally perfect for pre-concert drinks or, since the kitchen usually stays open until midnight, for a late dinner after an early show.

La Fourmi User Reviews

La Fourmi, Pigalle District
Anouchka R. Jan 10, 2013
Located in the heart of Pigalle, La Fourmi is an institution in the area. In appearance, the bar looks like a typical Parisian bar. But this neighborhood bar is actually a rock bar or on the terrace back when summer comes, the winter or to listen to old rock standards. Parisians love to stay at La Fourmi before an evening. Located near the Divan du Monde, this is the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer or a wine selected by the barman. The prices are very affordable for the area. La Fourmi is a place to meet friends and sitting in one of the many comfortable sofas. It is also possible to eat traditional bistros plates, late in the night or after a concert.
