The crew behind Oberkampf’s buzzing Alimentation Générale has taken over the Goutte d’Or’s longstanding bar and live music hub the Olympic Café. Now open daily from 8am to 2am, it’s a new drop-in spot when you get tired of sipping capuccinos at nearby Café Lomi. With a basement club for live gigs, an open kitchen serving typical brasserie fare including a tasty dish of the day, and a long bar perfect for sipping beers or coffee, it’s a welcome new destination in this under-the-radar corner of the 18th. It launches Sat with a funky line-up in the basement club, snacks from the kitchen, rum cocktails and other surprises!
8am-2am daily. 20 rue Léon, 18th. www.olympiccafe.fr/
