Canal Saint-Martin is an area of the city that is slowly making it to visitors' itineraries but thankfully it's not too mainstream (no pun intended) yet. It's a fun area to explore and most importantly, you can buy beers from some of the bars on the canal's banks and take them out to enjoy while you dangle your legs over the water. Here are some of our favorite spots:
We suggest Trabblrs meet up at Du Pain et des Idées, easily one of the best bakeries in all of Paris, to first to buy an assortment of breads and pastries to complement the beers that you'll soon be having.
When you've gained some grain, cross the canal to Le Jemmapes, a flash of bright yellow on an otherwise white-washed street. Their selection of Belgian beers is great and they're happy to serve them to you in plastic cups until 9pm so that you can take them outside.
Cross the canal again to competitor and hipster favorite Chez Prune for another chill drink or two before making your way to Paris - New York for a juicy burger dinner. They're staggeringly good.
Meeting point: Outside Du Pain et des Idées. The closest Metro stop is Jacques Bonsergent on the M5 Line.
Leaders, this event is done best in the late afternoon when you can catch the sunset with a beer in hand and then head over for a burger dinner.
