^^On a slow, non-music night. Sit at the bar and just listen to the stories the bartender will tell after you ask enough questions to the point they are kinda irritated with you but then open-up. And do one more tequila shot than you really, truly should
Le Zero Zero in Bastille, Paris. I like really 'hole in the wall'-type places. It tends to get overcrowded and overheated and the basement (where they often have live music playing) is so mildewy I'm pretty sure it's a health hazard, but the energy is great.

The first one have been unfortunately closed recently. It was runned by a funny French guy. He had many flavours of beers and liked to chat with clients and ask what they want as new one. The prices were always weird as 7,86 or 6,98 and even if you tried to calculate how much you should pay the prize was different in the end - often lower though ( after couple of beers it's very funny).
The second one is the place with their own beers and these are good ones. It's little and crowdy. They also have classic high fat snacks.
