Le Pop In is a must-see bar for anyone who wants to get to know the Paris music scene. Every weekend it teems with musicians and groupies. Fight your way across the packed front room and you can wander up and down flights of stairs to find small performing spaces tucked away at the end of narrow corridors, all crammed full of loungers and listeners.
There’s no cover charge, and you’re guaranteed to have a few good concerts of all varieties of music every night. Even if cutting-edge folk rock synthesis isn’t your thing, it’s worth going just to check out the Tokyo-esque fashion taste that prevails among the über-trendy regulars.
The Pop In is located at 105 rue Amelot in the 11th arrondissement. The closest metro station is Saint Sébastien Froissart on line 8.
