7. Express de Lyon
Located near the Gare de Lyon, Express de Lyon is a solid pre-or-post (or, let's face it, mid)-trip stop to grab a beer. Sporting a basic, down-to-earth vibe brought out by classic brass taps and tile floors, it feels much more like a classic French sports bar (there’s always a soccer match playing on the big screen) than anything else. The beer selection, however, pulls in the artisan drinkers from around the city, who're there for the 15-tap/30-bottle lineup of beers from breweries like Mikkeller, BrewDog, Kernel, and Belgian uber-brewery Bosteels.
