You can live in Paris for as long as you like, but you can never say you’ve seen it all. Wander in the most unexpected of streets, perhaps even those so narrow no more than a group of three can wedge in at the same time, and you’ll find something extraordinary.

Le Bal Café Otto is a prime example. Located in a narrow alleyway, the Impasse de la Défense, this Parisian café and restaurant is a respite from the raucous clubs, chain fast food restaurants, and heavy traffic of the nearby Place de Clichy.

Only those in the know come here, as it’s out of sight, and that’s what makes it special. But for all its intent to be hidden, there’s still a queue outside for lunch and happy hour drinks! Le Bal Café Otto (formerly Le Bal Café which served an English menu), now serves Vietnamese and Austrian cuisine – quite a mix, non ?

Stop by for the tapas on weekdays and the buzzing brunches on Saturdays.
