Paris is loaded with charming cafés and quirky bars - and you don't want to be stuck hanging out in chain pubs like Corcoran’s forever.

Le Trucmush: Steer clear of the tacky bar-clubs of Bastille’s Rue de Lappe with this refreshingly quirky spot. The world’s tiniest “plage” (beach), a bathtub for a table and a DJ booth housed inside a customized red Twingo hood with the licence plate “TRUCMUSH” make for the world’s most random décor. Come here for good cocktails (€6.50), a pulsing soundtrack and a friendly crowd. 5 Passage Thiéré, 75011. Tel. 01 48 07 11 91.
