July 5 to 7, 2017, over 400 bars and restaurants will offer tapas and drinks starting at €2. What a great initiative to promote local bars menus! Go to the Hotel de Ville and ask for a passport and follow a path taking you from bar to bar from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
For 6 years now, Paris city creates a following with its funny event, “Les Heures Heureuses de Paris” (Paris Happy Hours). This year, you are all expected on Wednesday 5, Thursday 6 and Friday 7 July 2017 to discover local bars thanks to delicious and rather surprising nibbles with fresh and quality ingredients starting from €2. To discover restaurants and know more about Paris culinary wealth, this is this summer’s good plan!
For 3 days, forget crisps, peanuts and other things to nibble on and go out, ask for razor clams with chlorophyll, asparagus gougère, focaccia with quail eggs, pickles, cured ham and truffle essence… All participating shop keepers and restaurateurs racked their brains to cook you the nibble perfectly representing their cuisine so that you can discover them.
Each year, different trails are imagined to make you discover some bistronomic gems, tapas bar and Paris nicest tables. To discover these trails and attend this culinary event, you must ask for a passport available from mid-June. Once you are equipped with your gourmet pass, you can buy an appetizer for €2 only in each establishment.
This pass, listing all the participating addresses, will be free and to be collected at the reception of the Paris Rendez-Vous shop (29 rue de Rivoli), or in participating restaurants, cafés and bars. Being in Paris as a tourist is no problem, on the contrary! The event will allow you to discover several Parisian bars, brasseries and restaurants throughout trails with gourmet nibbles.
