Since I’ve covered chocolate and cheese I thought it was only appropriate to move on to wine (especially given the weekend is almost here). Although a bit touristy, Le Refuge des Fondues near Montmatre never fails to provide a good time. Located on a small street close to Sacre Coeur the restaurant features large pots of fondue and wine in baby bottles. Apparently the concept evolved as a way to circumvent tax laws on wine in Paris. Patrons pack together on long communal tables to enjoy the fun atmosphere and unusual drinking experience.
