The name pépère is French slang meaning ‘very relaxed.’ The unusual décor can be attributed to the quirky owners who wanted to recreate a room where French grandmas and grandpas could enjoy drinking wine. This wine bar specializes in products sourced from small producers. Enjoy a charcuterie or cheese plate to munch on with your drinks. Pépère Jean also has plenty of cards and board games on hand if you’re looking to bond over reds with new friends.

This little dive bar, just around the corner from Canal Saint Martin, is very popular with the locals. The décor is best described as trendy-neglected, with beaten-up wobbly tables and chairs in the first room. Come for the laid-back atmosphere, reasonable drinks, and delicious charcuterie boards.

If you’re interested in organic products, an earthy ambiance and healthy food, then En Vrac is the place to go. Their concept is original: wine served straight from the barrel in recyclable bottles. Their organic wines are good quality and very affordable, and the food is creative and healthy (think sardines, smoked octopus, and more). This place is fresh, enjoyable and inventive!
