Bars – Le Marais

We basically only know Le Marais for bars. Although in the summer then drinks on the Seine with views along to the Eiffel Tower you could do worse than join the after-work crowd down at the quay by Scilicet 134 Voie Georges Pompidou, 75001 Paris.

Le Quetzal
10 Rue de la Verrerie, 75004 Paris
Fun but busy gay bar.

Bar Cox
15 Rue des Archives, 75004 Paris
Fun but small gay bar. Friday night happy hour is fun and in the summer everyone spills into the street.

Krash Bar
12 Rue Simon le Franc, 75004 Paris
Gay bar. Dark room.

Le Raidd
23 Rue du Temple, 75004 Paris
Gay bar. Showers with go go boys.

25 Rue Michel le Comte, 75003 Paris
Laid back gay bar
