Far less famous than the Hemingway Bar but arguably just as worth a visit, the Hotel du Nord bar whirls visitors back to the silent-screen era, then adds a good dusting of fresh modernity. French filmmaker Marcel Carne made the place a site of local legend with his eponymous film of 1938 — and in the Parisian imagination, this is a spot that's bursting with cinematic romance.

While there's technically no longer a hotel onsite here, the zinc bar, walls lined with film and art memorabilia, and heavy velvet curtains around the door are decidedly old-world hotel. At the same time, the bar-restaurant situated right on the Canal St-Martin is at the epicenter of one of the city's most vibrant nightlife districts​ and is beloved by boho professionals and even young revelers looking for the elegance of old Paris.
