France, Paris

Le Baron Rouge, Paris – DRINK

June 21, 2015
Le Baron Rouge, Paris

Le Baron Rouge took me by surprise; so different to any place I had yet encountered in Paris. Slightly out of the way, but totally worth it. This lively wine bar oozes charm, originality and perhaps represents down-to-earth France at its best. Don’t expect a seat – the huge barrels of wine clearly take preference over tables and chairs – but this doesn’t matter. After choosing from the vast selection of wines available, rest your glass on a barrel, enjoy some saucisson-sec and take in the great variation of people enjoying their Friday night there. This rustic place is far from prim and proper, but the service and quick and good and you can even take home 2 litres of wine in a plastic container for EUR6.50.

A decent Bordeaux will set you back EUR2.50 a glass, a large charcuterie platter to share costs EUR12.
