L'Age d'Or

Bar in Montparnasse & Southern Paris

A fully fledged hybrid on the fringe of Chinatown, this lively neighbourhood corner cafe morphs from early-morning breakfast spot to lunchtime fave, to cocktail hot spot and live-music venue throughout the day. Seating is on benches outside or around a rainbow of 1950s-style formica tables in the grungy, dimly lit interior. Tapas staves off munchies.
