When you’re wandering the streets of Montmartre, after climbing all the steep hills, dodging tourists, and watching artists, you get to the point where you want to sit somewhere out of the way, with a nice atmosphere, a good wines list and some nibbles.
The little Spanish wine bar Boca Dos, on Rue des Trois Frères, running roughly halfway up the Butte Montmartre fits that bill to perfection. Sparingly decorated with Spanish posters, a small bar, and colorful small tables for two, this spot may not look like much when it comes to décor, but if you like a smooth Rioja, then look no further. Should you prefer something cold, Spanish beer is on tap and the bartenders are happy to serve a selection of cocktails. But I came for the wine.
A glass of Rioja accompanied by homemade tapas—in my case, tortilla so fresh it fell off my fork, gooey croquettas jamon, and fresh warm bread; and a platter of mixed Spanish charcuterie and cheeses for my taste-testing partner—spelt relaxing comfort.
Add to that some Spanish music that makes you wish you had taps on your shoes so that your heels click while you subtly dance in your seat, and you have the perfect a set up for a lazy evening à l’espagnole. It’s a great way to gather your energy before heading back out to tackle the many stairs of Montmartre.
