Overview

Open s an institution in the Marais where the gay community congregates at night before heading off in all directions. Centrally-located among all other hotspots, it's a no-brainer to start a soirée, or to finish if the scene is good. Young and old, sporty and chic, local and foreign all collide for a happy hour (6-10pm) on pints followed by specials on Champagne until closing that provide the perfect social lubrication for the rest of the evening. A welcoming atmosphere makes this a good meeting point for friends or for a solo drink if you're looking to make new acquaintances. Grab a table on the sidewalk for some casual cruising and people-watching - and don't be afraid to have a coffee or light lunch during the day when Open embraces the 'café' aspect of its name.

Myself and some friends visited Open Cafe during the a weekend break in Paris. Was a great vibe and good music so was a great place to start the night, with cheapish drinks. Will certainly visit again when I next go to Paris

Had honestly walked 10.5 miles through Paris alone and looked this place up for a drink. Bartenders were nice, and nice looking ;) and the beer and the sparkling water were cold. Couldn’t ask for much more.

We visited on a hot humid afternoon looking for a refreshing salad for lunch - which is exactly what we got. My chef salad and my partner's chicken croustillant salad were both very generous in size and fresh. I adored the slightly curry flavoured dressing...More
