A slice of one of Paris’ most charming neighborhoods has just opened in one of the most charming Lisbon districts. Found down the street from the Santa Catarina viewpoint, Le Marais Cafe-Bar opened this weekend as a hangout for the afternoon, and a place to relax in the evening. It offers comfortable sofas and chill-out music to invite you to stay and drink, or even have something to eat. It serves French specialties such as croque-monsieur (a grilled cheese and ham sandwich), French cheese plates, salads, and desserts, as well as wine by the glass although you may also order a bottle (and yes, champagne is one of the options). If you’re showing up for drinks after dinner you may also go for the cocktails and the one to try is the “Le Marais” made with champagne.
Try it as an alternative to the bars nearby in Bairro Alto and Bica and it will likely become a favorite.
