The little turquoise-framed Bar Ourcq has two things going for it. Its cool canal-side setting makes it one of Paris’ most attractive spots to while away an evening, and the unstuffy boho atmosphere simply adds to its appeal. Imaginatively decorated, with parrot-patterned wallpaper and battered sofas, it has a warm, intimate feel and attracts an eclectic crowd from across the city. Out in the19th arrondissement, the location is unusual for such a trendy venue, but it really comes into its own in the evening, when local DJs play their sets and the beauty of its canal by moonlight casts its spell.
