Le Vieux Chêne
Lonely Planet review for Le Vieux Chêne
This rue Mouffetard institution is reckoned to be Paris’ oldest bar. Indeed, a revolutionary circle met here in 1848 and it was a popular bal musette (dancing club) in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These days it’s a student favourite, especially during happy ‘hour’ (4pm to 9pm Tuesday to Sunday, and from 4pm until closing on Monday).
Resident DJs mix it up on Friday and Saturday nights.
