While the Canal St Martin area of Paris used to be a working class neighbourhood, it has slowly transformed itself into a hip and trendy area. Chez Prune is a great little wine bar with a slightly studenty feel, and its terrace is perfect for sitting outside by the canal. It’s no wonder that it is so popular among the Parisian young professionals. Go for the meat or cheese platter if you get hungry, they’re good value for money.
