Set decorated like a vintage gas station, this new-ish bar just around the cornder from Odéon has become a quick hit with beer lovers and wine aficionados. Part of the appeal is that you can self-serve your own beers, from taps that have been fashioned to dispense beer straight from the old gas station pump dispensing guzzles. How it works is that you put some cash on a little magnetic-strip card when you arrive and with that you can pretty much serve yourself beer all night, or until you use up the cash on your beer card. The wine menu will also keep most wine lovers satisfied, too. And, by the end of the evening you're sure to have mastered how to pour yourself a beer with the least amount of foam on top.
13 rue Monsieur Le Prince
- Bars: "This is one of those fun left-bank hangouts and the concept is both unique and entertaining. It's not just a self-serve beer bar, but a beer and wine bar where vintage 1950's gas pumps have been turned into beer-dispensing machines."
- Best for Bars Because: New and fun and on the Left Bank in an area where there's lots of students, this self-serve beer/wine bar is a novel concept.
