Where is it?


An influx of new art galleries paired with arrivals on neighboring St Claude, and firmly anchored by the established, larger dealers (Thaddaeus Ropac, Emmanuel Perrotin, Yvon Lambert) a few streets away has made what was already a cool quartier, almost toxically trendy.
Le Progrés, the café which used to be the preferred place for all the local artists, art dealers and fashionistas, while still retaining a portion of its deliberately scruffy clientele has been somewhat overshadowed by a new bastion of chic, the Café Charlot. Aside from the impossibly attractive patrons, the place is genuinely cozy and appealing and offers basic but solidly decent food, particularly the hamburgers. And most importantly, in a city whose restaurants tend to keep somewhat, shall we say, ‘arbitrary’ hours, Café Charlot is open ALL THE TIME. From 7am to 2am daily. The kitchen even serves dinner until midnight. Check out the new galleries, innovative design and clothing shops, and then head over to Café Charlot. Pick one of the low tables with the comfy armchairs, bring a book, doesn’t matter which one- you won’t be reading it, like Karl over his fan you’ll be surreptitiously peering over it, to check out one of the best impromptu fashion shows in town. Trés cool, trust me.
