A stone's throw from the tourist attractions of the rue des Abbesses is the bar restaurant "La Bascule", a discreet address appreciated by the locals. Their slogan is simple: "Drink & Eat". So you can enjoy very good cocktails (including the "La Bascule" cocktail made from old rum and strawberry!) and/or enjoy the restaurant with its regularly renewed menu (summer/winter). A generous French cuisine where everything is based on fresh ingredients. My 2 favorites: smoked mozzarella, directly imported from a small Italian producer, is a must have.
