As the name suggests, this bar is about as Francophile as they get: Art Deco Champagne posters on the wall, gingham bar stools at the polished wooden bar, Edith Piaf on the stereo and lots of French-speaking, Ricard-drinking regulars tucking into the menu of escargot and chèvre chaud. Naturally, it’s hugely popular with the Frenchies of HK, but also attracts just about everyone at some point in time.
This tiny rectangular bistro serves tasty food, quality wines and perfect aperitifs throughout the day until 2am. Customers pour on to the street, continental style, and polish off bottles of rosé well into the night. Once settled here it's hard to move as the whole city drifts past at one stage or another, most stopping off to join the party.
The staff are always super friendly and efficient and the owners themselves (French of course), are often in situ adding to the bar's personal vibe. If you want to party on in a similar style after shop shuts up, then decadent sister bar Le Boudoir, is conveniently situated right next door, there’s no excuse not to really.
