Canal St. Martin

What is the middle age of hipsterdom? Come to the Canal and see it up close. Le Canal St. Martin is cool for what it is — a refuge of sorts…as Paris gets even more gottdamn TV shows, it becomes even MORE touristy, and the Canal is our little hiding place — alas, every year sees more beige-assed corporate encroachment. BUT! All is not lost: It has great restaurants, like the used-to-be underrated Le Verre Volé. And Gros Bao. And Ima Cantine. And La Marine… You get it.
