This festive bar and performance space is owned by a French musician and longtime Brooklyn resident, Olivier Conan who sometimes takes the stage with his Latin-themed band Las Rubias del Norte. The line-up here is impressive and eclectic (the bar is named after the North African neighborhood in Paris), with Afro-Peruvian grooves, West African funk, French chanson and Tuvan throat singing among other sounds.

Don't miss the brassy Slavic Soul Party, which plays here most Tuesday nights (from 10pm). There are also DJ nights, readings and film screenings, too.
