Le Marais is a spot par excellence when it comes to a good night out – the lively scene embraces everything from gay-friendly and gay-only venues to arty cafes, eclectic bars and raucous pubs. Rue Oberkampf and parallel rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud are hubs of the Ménilmontant bar crawl, a scene that is edging out steadily through cosmopolitan Belleville.
