Le Clown Bar
Le Clown is a historic monument next to the city's winter circus, the Cirque d'Hiver (1852), and is practically a museum with its ceramics, mosaics, original zinc bar and purist art deco style. This legendary address, which has been a restaurant for decades, now serves up fabulous modern French cuisine and excellent natural wines for a jovial crowd. Its pavement terrace gets packed out on sunny days.
