Looking for an alternative place in Paris? Looking for some trendy yet original place? Well run to the Comptoir Général.
First of all, the decoration is absolutely stunning: you’ll come across colonial time furniture, African statues, tropical plants, vintage film posters, mismatched chairs, and glass walls. One of the bars is even boat-shaped, and you have tables on this boat’s roof.
What about the atmosphere? During the evening, the music is obviously in relation to the decoration: African and Caribbean vibes, but then at nightfall, they’ll change the rhythms to make you move your feet! 🙂
What do you drink? Most of the cocktails are made with rum, but you can drink whatever you like, from banal to unusual stuffs.
More than just a bar, Le Comptoir Général is a place to spend time with people you appreciate. Whether you get a coffee during the afternoon, or dance at 1AM, you’ll love the place.
On Sunday afternoons, they even propose film retrospective, based on themes such as colonial History, nature and discovery.
