Bistrot L’Horloge

Bar in Marseille

A local favourite with parasol-shaded table and chairs at the lion-statue end of cours Honoré d’Estienne d’Orves, this bistrot-bar rocks. In summer live music entertains in the early evening while punters chat over mint and ice-jammed mojitos, pots of black olive tapenade and charcuterie platters. The food (mains €16 to €18) is pretty good too.
