Short for “bar à vins” (you’re welcome!), Le Barav has been pouring glasses for first dates, coworkers, tour groups, and more for over 15 years. It’s a local, Cheers-like environment in a great location that caters to everyone, at any time. Fall into it after a long day of shopping the Marais, or use it as a meet-up spot for a first date with someone you’ll hopefully be attracted to long enough to withstand the wait to choose a bottle. Once you’ve done that, pick a spot on the big terrace and order a no-fuss snack of meats, cheeses, olives, or croques. There’s little over €12 and it’s all meant for sharing. So, again, bring someone you like.
