3 Rue des Tournelles
By the time you’ve finished your wine at Bubar, you’ll understand why the joint is named a French slang word for bearded. The Le Marais wine bar is helmed by an eccentric wine connoisseur who is distinct not only for his talent in recommending reds and whites but also for his voluminous beard. Bubar is unique for its decided grunginess; wine crates line the walls in no particular order, and the place is arguably cluttered. Though not as polished as other local spots, Bubar owns its authenticity and serves as a sort of antihero in Paris’s trendy bar scene.
