This local institution is an absolute stop-over for any Ménilmontant pilgrimage. At the helm of this bar-tag sale that has remained as sprightly as ever: Eva Pritsky, an ageless lady who could be the Parisian counterpoint of the wild New York fashion icon Iris Apfel.
The principle is simple: in this serendipity of marvels that looks like your Granny’s salon, you can a) buy everything that appeals to you or makes you smile and b) sip a glass of wine (about 4€), while sharing a plate of cheese-charcuterie (8€) with the regulars and the inquisitive types who had the same idea as you.
