Sure there are a number of wine bars to choose from in Paris and each has its distinct character but you will have to try out a number of them before you find anything close to as charming and inviting as this one. The bar stools number less than a dozen and they give you a good view onto the bartendar/ small-plates cook as he whips up mouth-watering appetizer nibbles. Or, facing outward, you have that lovely view onto the Passage du Grand Cerf, one of the lovely covered passageways of Paris, with all its old-world regal charm. Here the wines you choose from will be overwhelmingly natural wines, or "vin nature" as the French call them. It's oh so tempting to unleash your appetite on these delicious small plates and with the upstairs seating it is easy enough to settle in and get comfy.
- 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Nightlife: "This is a great spot to stop in at on your way home from work or when meeting friends. The way the toasts and tapenades and the fine cheeses are spread out on the counter just beg you to nibble them. The wine list is predominantly natural wines with a few bio-dynamic wines thrown in for good measure."
- Best for 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Nightlife Because: Just next door to the trending restaurant of the same name, this bar à vin nonetheless enjoys a distinct space. It's a standout.
