L'Express de Lyon
the full pour
We descend on Paris for a variety of reasons, it can be quite a complicated affair. For the majority, chasing down idealized french moments is a common goal. While the ability to find balance between one's interests, energy and time is a critical attribute for fullfillment, even the best of us can make the mistake of overcomplicating things. Enter L'Express de Lyon, the cure for the travel crime of trying too hard. This interesting concept is the perfect pause button for a rare Parisian experience. It is here that you'll find a French Brasserie, with a craft beer bar component in the mix, creating an atmosphere that you've probably never experienced. The true-to-form chalkboard hangs over 15 vintage taps, pouring from all over the map.
why is this on THL?
Consuming a selection of Rue Cler delicacies, on an impossibly green lawn beneath La Tour Eiffel, may be a traveler's idea of Parisian tranquility. You should probably do that at some point, because it'll be awesome, but you also need to get even more local for those most elemental of everyday experiences. L'Express de Lyon is highly worth the effort, functioning as a conduit between the Paris lifestyle you seek and the good beer you require. Sit outside within a mix of locals, curious travelers and a convivial staff. With early opening hours, and a location across from Gare de Lyon, this is a perfect farewell/welcome to The City of Light (La Ville Lumière).
