Les Furieux

Les Furieux

This rock/Gothic bar is located in the Bastille area. When you enter Les Furieux you discover a place which is a mix between baroque ornaments and French bistro. You can have a drink at the bar, but I recommend you to go at the back of the bar where you will discover several large sofas. Take a look at their cocktail menu and choose between cocktails with unusual names such as the “Chat Noir” (Black Cat), the Grunge or the “Poisson Rouge” (Goldfish). They also regularly exhibit alternative artists and propose thematic evenings.
