Embrace the past, and engage in times gone by. We’ve put together a list of some of the greatest retro and vintage bars in Paris which are sure to get you wishing you were born in a different era.
Swing into Le Basile and find formica, and lots of it. Decorated in the style of an American Diner stuck in the 60s, sitting yourself down at one of the red leatherette wall seats will have you feeling like a cast member from that old show your mom used to watch. Situated just a stone’s throw away from Sciences Po university, the prices are surprisingly cheap considering its location in the upmarket 7th arrondissement. Young and trendy students pack themselves inside for the food deals and a daily happy hour.
