Escaping chain pubs and tourist trap bars is easy in Paris if you know where to look. Here's 10 great, locals-only bars brought to you by the authors of the brand new book "Parisian's Guide to Cafés, Bars and Restaurants."


Paris is loaded with charming cafés and quirky bars, but sometimes you need the help of someone with a few more Paris years under her or his belt to find the best ones – or you’ll be stuck hanging out in chain pubs like Corcoran’s forever.
That's why The Local is bringing you some highlights from the brand new guide book "The Parisians’ Guide to Cafés, Bars and Restaurants."
The authors are a team of Parisians and frequent visitors who have evidently spent their share of nights in its watering holes.
So are you looking for a good place that's kind of quiet or on the hip side of the spectrum? How about live jazz or DJ sets?
And let us not forget the all important question of a nice, long happy hour?
