Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Kong
A large silver tree marks the entrance to Kong, whose interior wavers between a club and a highly surreal restaurant.
Pop In
As Hoxton as you can get in Paris.
La Fontaine
An atmospheric jazz bar that does it for the music and not for the money.
Zéro Zéro
There's not much to see here except for a blackboard bearing an extensive cocktail list including the Zéro Zéro a whoop-ass pick-me-up.
Les Étages
Small with uneven bare floorboards this tiny bar draws in a young trendy crowd.
Le Petit Fer à Cheval
A wonderful microscopic wine bar-brasserie.
La Chope de Château Rouge
Adopted by cool kids this is an appealing place to linger for a few hours especially in the summer sunshine.
L’Alimentation Générale
Loud dark and jam-packed with Oberkampf trendies.
L’Armagnac Café Bar
Guaranteed to be buzzing with up-beat music and a casual drinking crowd.
De la Ville Café
An über-trendy schizophrenically decorated bar-restaurant.
Dédé la Frite
Quasi-industrial very 'Ost-Berliner' and comfortingly grungy and relaxed.
Les Editeurs
This library/restaurant/bar is naturally a great place to sit with a book or a newspaper.
Le Kitch
Trendies champion this quirky little resto-bar on the Marais side of Oberkampf.
La Patache
What starts modestly here can end up all over the place...
Au P’tit Garage
A battered bar with a 50s twist and a laissez-faire attitude.
Andy Wahloo
Arabesque meets pop-art in this funky and fashionable Marais haunt.
