The beer is reasonably priced, pub-grub is served from mid-day to 2.30p, and there's a choice of three TVs showing the best of British sports.

The Parc des Buttes Chaumont is locked for the night, but something inside the gates glows with strange lights, music and rambunctious voices. It's Rosa Bonheur, a bar named for the female French artist known for wearing men's clothing and smoking cigarettes. Like the bar's namesake, the patrons of Rosa Bonheur are usually doing everything deemed unacceptable by moderate Parisian society: drinking several too many bottles of wine, dancing much too intensely, and having a wicked good time. Since Parisians are so unused to this curious so-bad-it's-good combination, Rosa Bonheur has seen roaring success since it opened in 2008. Arrive early to snag a table, and if you come past 10p, you'll have to enter through the single open gate at the intersections of Rue de Crimée and Rue Botzaris. - Betsy Mikel
Express Bar's red-tiled exterior is unusually contemporary for an old city such as Paris. So is the roomy interior, which offers more space for groups and more elbowroom for ones using a laptop than a typical Parisian café can provide. The local art displayed on Express Bar's walls is lit with warm red lamps, which emits a soothing atmosphere. Sip a hot chocolate in the company of a book, try one of the cocktails in the company of friends, or sample food served up by British chef Gary Willimont. If you're itching for a traditional English breakfast, come on the weekend. Express Bar serves bacon and eggs during brunch. - Betsy Mikel
