Le comptoir general – A step back into Africa

By on October 13, 2013. Posted in , .

A must do if you’re open to alternative stuff is “le comptoir general”: a trendy bar, very conceptual, which aims to replicate a feeling of African colonial bar while promoting African cultures and denunciating the colonization.

The African lager is tasty and the the punch cocktails are tricky. A lot of cool people on the arty kind hang out there. There is a patio and different rooms, quite an experience. Best between 5pm and 8pm as it gets really crowded afterwards. Also a perfect spot for Sunday late afternoon drinks.
