No trip to Paris is complete without a detour to La Fine Mousse in the 11th arondissment, the finest beer bar in the city of lights. Long before Mother Kelly’s in Bethnal Green stole London beer geek hearts, La Fine Mousse was setting the standard across the channel with 20 taps of craft beer and a huge array of bottles (including an exciting range of lambics from the likes of Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen).
La Fine Mousse opens at 5pm every day, but it makes up for the late start by keeping the beer flowing until 2am which in-the-know Parisians take full advantage of, even on Sundays. It’s tucked away in a quiet part of town, but with Le Perchoir (rooftop booze), Les Trois 8 (another brilliant beer bar), and La Fine Mousse’s very own beer-centric restaurant around the corner, you won’t need to leave the area. Santé!
