Located a stones throw from the Musée Picasso is a quintessentially Parisian bar called Le Saint Gervais. Given its neighbouring cultural attraction, you would expect this place to be overloaded with tourists, but in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Le Saint Gervais is inhabited by some of the city’s most fashionable locals, who humorously battle for a seat at one of the ten tables outside its small (but ultra hip) space. This is the perfect place for people watching, and if you’re there with a date, we recommend having an ice cold beer before spending some romantic time in the Jardin de l’Hôtel-Salé directly opposite.
