A small place tucked on a residential street in GrГ cia, Le Journal is narrow, busy, beloved by locals in the know and thus slightly bohemian. Entering on a busy night is can be a challenge due to the lack of space at the bar, but if you make it past the drink-ordering stage, you are golden. The ground floor has seating around small tables, but you also have a choice of going up very narrow stairs to the second floor, where the tables are larger and have chandeliers hanging above them. Upstairs, it is easy to see why Le Journal is beloved for its shabby chic.
Le Journal bar specializes in gin tonics and imaginative cocktails - the menu has over 30 types, and the bartenders can also mix you any drink you can possibly come up with. Beer on tap, house wine, hard liquor are served as well. Cocktails go for 5.50в‚¬, beer bottles for 2.50в‚¬, gin tonic prices vary.
