Party Earth Le Baron Rouge Review

The Scene

Le Baron Rouge in Paris' 11eme is a popular wine bar with great affordable drinks & a festive crowd. Come sift & swirl your way through Paris with Party Earth.

A quick walk from the historic marché d’Aligre street market and equally close to the Bastille party circuit, Le Baron Rouge harkens back to the wine bars of yesteryear when the vino was cheap and the conversation perpetually loud.

Early weekday afternoons see graying retirees and families with kids in tow posted along the shiny zinc bar to chat with the bartender, but most evenings find a crowd of young bobos and a mélange of tourists so large that guests spill onto the street.

By 8pm, the brouhaha of multiple languages usually forces servers to lower the crooning ambient jazz or mellow pop so people can hear one another talk over €1.50 glasses of wine.

Although plates of cheese and meat are available – and fresh oysters are served on weekends from March to October – few people show up for the food, choosing instead to make the tiny space a favorite pre-dinner spot.

A smattering of spindly chairs and tables set under loosely strung lights make up most of the seating, while out front several plastic wine crates topped with planks offer smokers a place to rest their glasses as they crouch on the curb.

Thick coats of dust have settled onto the tiled floor and over the stemware chandelier in the window, but that’s part of the charm at Le Baron Rouge, a traditionally French place to meet with friends and enjoy the city’s wine and culture.

And maybe more wine.

Tip from Emma:

This wine bar doubles as a wine shop, so patrons who really enjoy a glass of wine can purchase any bottle to go! You can also bring in your own empty bottles, which they’ll fill up from big wooden barrels bursting with grapey goodness.

  • Crowd

    Aging groups of beret-wearing Frenchmen by day, and Parisian bobos, vintage hipsters, eclectic creative types, savvy backpackers, and hordes of enthusiastic tourists at night, 20s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient jazz and mellow rock or pop barely audible over the din of conversation.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Plates of meat and cheese, as well as oysters on weekends from March to October.

  • Prices

    Plates of meat and cheese €6–€14, oysters €8.50–€19 (for one dozen). Beer €2.50+, wine €1.50–€3.50/glass or €11–€28/bottle, cognac and other digestives €6/glass, aperitif €2.50.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: basic t-shirts, flannel, vests, earth-toned blouses, comfy sweaters, general business attire, with some swankier garb on folks warming up before hitting a club.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Le Baron Rouge can be busy at all hours, and Sunday mornings are surprisingly lively as patrons drop in before and after hitting the nearby street market. Otherwise, Friday and Saturday nights are busiest, with the crowd spilling onto the street by 8pm.

  • Close By

    La Table d’Aligre (11 Place d’Aligre) is a classic brasserie with an extensive menu that changes with the seasons.

A Charming & Bustling Wine Bar
Michelle K. Apr 3, 2013
While a boisterous laugh erupts from a well aging barkeep in a white and blue striped shirt, a little rusty old bell rings in his hand marking another tip received. Le Baron Rouge is a short walk from Ledru-Rollin and barely a block from the Marché d’Aligre. On the Saturday morning I was there, it was full of activity from the smartly dressed Parisians to the well aging to the friends catching up over oysters and wine. Outside, the crowd spilled onto the streets knocking back oysters with a cigarette in hand. While it wasn't as loud as an Irish bar at 2am, conversation was audible in and out of the wine bar. My sister and I enjoyed cheap wine and a big plate of charcuterie (€19 in total) while standing at the giant wine barrel that served as our table. Also, bread is refillable! With the street market a stroll away, it was the perfect start to a sunny day in Paris.
