Le Comptoir Général
This 600-square-meter barn is a unique bar and restaurant tucked away in Canal Saint-Martin. This is not the sort of venue that you can ‘stumble’ upon, and finding the place can be quite tricky as it is hidden from the main street. To find Le Comptoir Général you first have to pass through a dark little alley that will eventually lead you to a majestic black door hiding a long passageway. Le Comptoir Général is not only known for its wide variety of cocktails, beers, and snacks, but also for it multi-functionality. Aside from being a restaurant and bar with a dance floor, this is an art museum dedicated to ghetto culture, a vintage book and clothing shop on the second floor.
