City Guide: Paris

La Belle Hortense

A little book shop with a zinc bar and interesting wine list.

Only in Paris will you find this kind of charming neighborhood hangout where you can drink wine and watch the local men flirting with the staff and anyone who will indulge their flattery. The back room is a place for quiet conversation, where patrons cans nestle in the library-like atmosphere and eavesdrop on a book club session at a neighboring table. Note: If you need some fresh veggies with your books, wine and nibbles—they offer farm share pick-up which is customizable online via their partner, Les Plaisirs du Jardin.
