A group of 6 of us are celebrating my husband's 60th birthday in his favorite city--Paris. We've set our sites on a marathon cafe crawl in order to drink a toast to him in all 20 arrondissements on his special day. I've developed an itinerary to do this pretty easily (if our stomachs and livers hold up) by scheduling stops at places where several arrondissements intersect. We've got a few definite stops planned but I could use help on some of the less well known places. So please, if you're familiar with any of these areas and can suggest a specific bar, cafe, etc. where we can/should stop for drinks (wine, beer, coffee, even water--we'll have to pace ourselves)
please give us your suggestions.
16th Mirabeau metro stop/Place de Barcelona
15th Javel/Balard stop or Charles Michels
13/14th Rue de la Sante, need to drink on both sides of the street
11/12th on Place de la Bastille, opposite sides of Rue du Faurbourg St. Antoine
10, 19, 20th at Belleville metro stop--all four corners
8,9, 17, 18th Place de Clichy metro stop--all four corners
Probably a crazy plan but we're hoping it will be fun and get us to some places in Paris we've not been before. Thanks for any help you can provide. If yours is a selected suggestion we'll include you in our toast at that spot.
