Those who love karaoke are going to really love this - a bar that transforms into a communal singing den that's led by a charismatic guitarist named Marcello. Every week Marcello comes to Le Cinquante with his guitar and distributes books full of lyrics throughout the bar. Each song is numbered and once Marcello has chosen one after hearing recommendations from the crowd, Le Cinquante erupts in song. While most songs are French classics, there are lots of English ones as well. Drinks are served to loosen your larynx and the scene is friendly, lively, and very, very local!
Check out this video to see exactly what we're talking about.
If you're not in the mood to sing, then feel free to head into one of the two cozy rooms in the back.
Meeting point: Outside Le Cinquante on 50 Rue de Lancry. The closest Metro stop is Jacques Bonsergent on the M5 Line.
Leaders, sing with Marcello every Sunday at 6:30pm but we suggest getting there earlier so that Trabblrs can grab a seat and drink together first.
