Hoodna ('truce' in Arabic) is a carpenter's workshop zone by day but transforms itself at night, when tables and sofas are dragged into the street to create a chilled-out drinking space. Inside there are almost-daily live or DJ sets.

More than a bar, it's really a staple of Florentin's community, and the bar even has its own band, Hoodna Afrobeat Orchestra. The owners also run the nearby Casbah Cafe if you get hungry.
