As I don’t live in the neighborhood of this bar, I don’t go often for breakfast or to enjoy the tea time, but it’s a nice place to be at any moment. It’s one of those typical cafeterias during daytime and a bar at night.
I used to go to the nice events they organized during evenings quite often. If it’s raining and cold, the music keeps us warm, and if the weather is good, the big terrace is welcoming us and the many friends who had the same idea.
If you want to feel the energy, you should try it on a Thursday nights: a concert and a DJ set in a jazzy, funky, colorful style.
Friday and Saturday nights can also be a good place to meet some friends to warm up before a huge party in the city or just to have a good musical moment on the Bar du Matin’s dancefloor (if you’re not in a mood for a hardcore party night).
I also like their event called the Photomatic (on Wednesdays): on a big screen you discover the work of photographs or some short movies and it’s followed by a groovy DJ set.
Despite its name (matin means “morning”), any moment of the day is a good one to have a drink or more at this bar.
