A loud, lively bar adopted by revolving generations of students, the ‘Crazy Violin’ attracts lots of young English-speakers with big-screen sports shown upstairs and the flirty ‘Dingue Lounge’ downstairs. The name is a pun on the expression le violon d’Ingres, meaning ‘hobby’ in French because the celebrated painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres played fiddle in his spare time.
