Unusual bars of Paris

I tend to think of Paris as having a cafe culture, more so than a bar culture.  Apparently, I’ve been missing the mark.  Here is a list of unusual bars in Paris, from one of my favorite French web sites for expats, The Local, followed by some relevant vocabulary:

  • 1664: A popular beer in France.  I have a humiliating amount of trouble with French numerals, so I was always very proud of myself every time I ordered a seize soixante-quatre (“sixteen sixty four”)—right up until I noticed that everyone else just asks for a seize (“sixteen”)!  Don’t live my shame.
  • la bière brune: dark beer.
  • le demi: a medium-sized beer, roughly a half-pint.
