Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times published in its excellent travel section “a toast” to the lively wine bars of Paris in the 11th & 12th arrondissements. Written by S. Irene Virbila, the newspaper with its limited space, only published photos of four of the seven wine bars mentioned—quelle injustice!

However, the LAT’s website does offer more a few more images, plus the complete article:

But first, where are the 11th and 12th arrondissements?  The 11th is the area east of the Seine below the Pont d’Austerlitz and moves south and east to the 12th via the Parc Zoologique de Paris and ends somewhere around where the river La Marne joins the Seine.

Now, thanks to and Google Maps we’re able to add more acquired photos to the seven wine bars Ms. Virbila shared with the world:


Au Passage, 1 bis, Passage Saint-Sebastien.
Swede chef David Kjellstenius offers tapas, wine bar to go with his popular restaurant.

Clamato, 80 Rue de Charonne
Near sister restaurant and wine bar Septime and there’s no big sign outside so don’t miss it.  This was the favorite of the LA Times writer.

La Buvette de Camille, 67 Rue Saint-Maur
Ah, Paris.  So many wine bars so little time.  Timeless.  Bravo!

Le Baratin, 3 Rue Jouye-Rouve
Sophisticated, Quintessential.

Le Siffeur de Ballons, 34 Rue de Citeaux
Current reigning “cool place” among Paris neighborhood wine bars.

Septime La Cave, 3 Rue Basfroi
This cozy wine bar is at a different location from its sister restaurants over on Rue de Charonne.

Willi’s Wine Bar, 13 Rue des Petits Champ

Venerable 30 years old wine bar (and counting) is lovingly described in Marie Z. Johnston’s recent article:
