Enjoy yourself this summer in the guinguettes of Paris!
Published on 9 June 2017, dans Entertainment
A pretty terrace, lively music, garlands of light: the atmosphere of the guinguettes is ideal for summer evenings. Paris has several of these delightful establishments in which you can dance, drink and eat amidst a convivial atmosphere. Here is our selection of the friendliest guinguettes for both adults and children. Discover their charms during your stay at the Hotel Marais Bastille!
The young and trendy guinguette; Rosa Bonheur
The setting is idyllic because the Rosa Bonheur is in the heart of the magnificent Parc des Buttes Chaumont. Named after the 19th century painter, sculptor and feminist, this guinguette is typically frequented by a clientele of thirty-something bobos. It has a host of pleasing elements, including its long wooden balustrades and drinks at low prices. Self-declared ambassadors of the Camargue, the Rosa Bonheur team wishes to bring a little touch of the South of France, in all its lightness, to Parisian nights. The results speak for themselves!
The chic version of a guinguette; the Chalet des Iles
As trendy as the Rosa Bonheur but much more chic, the Chalet des Iles invites you to party by the lake, in the centre of the Bois de Boulogne. You will still be in Paris, but amidst the bucolic delights of nature. You can have a drink there, and also dine, and dance all night if you wish. The sharp musical selection is focussed around quality electro and aimed at a thirty-something crowd. One tip: if you’re looking to eat, it’s best to book in advance!
The musette ball guinguette; La Javelle
Here is a much more family-oriented guinguette. La Javelle is located in the west of Paris, in the 15th arrondissement, near the Port de Javel. As soon as night falls, the place lights up its loveliest colourful garlands for swinging band concerts. You can enjoy small finger snacks while sipping a glass of rosé in a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of that found in a village square. It’s the perfect summer hangout spot and an ideal place for families!
