Quaint, cosy and dark perfectly describe the atmosphere at Le Fou Bar off Rue Saint-Jean. While the bar is small, the music is huge. The jazz here is some of the best in the city and rivalled only by Bar St. Angele. Carve out some time to stay awhile and take in the music and great brew selections.
