La Buvette is what you call here a « bar à vins », in a hype version . A trendy opportunity to gather around a good bottle and a plate of saucisson or cheese for a perfect hypster aperitivo.
Prices: I recommend the place for the wine and atmosphere, but the food is quite expensive (7.- for a small plate of saucisson), so make sure your stomach is not too empty when you arrive!

Soberly named « Vintage Clothing » this vintage clothing’s shop is worth a visit . The prices are as modest as the shop’s name and the selection is quite interesting. From a rack full of printed silk dresses you go to the next one dedicated to contemporary japanese designers (Yohji, Comme des Garçons, Junya Watanabe) , then 90’s minimalism by Helmut Land, Margiela, without forgetting the french of course, Alaia, Gaultier, Mugler, etc. A large choice of coats as well, and some accessories too.
Prices: high but very correct, for example an Alaia suede skirt in perfect shape 280.-
