Whether you're a geek in the closet or a genuine geek, if ever you find yourself in Paris you need to visit Le Dernier Bar Avant la Fin du Monde (The Last Bar Before the End of the World)! I was supposed to meet some SFF fans from the French website elbakin.net there, but I never heard back from them.
So with the rain pouring down this morning and with little to do with my time (having been in Paris 4 times now), I decided to take my book and have a café crème at Le Dernier Bar Avant la Fin du Monde. And this place is really awesome! In a nutshell, it's pretty much the ultimate place for geeks to hang out at!
The funky décor is straight out of comic books, SFF books/movies/tv series, mangas, etc. It's an eclectic mix of colors, artifacts and geekdom memorabilia. There, you can have a drink or munch on some food while reading a lot of material (books, graphic novels, mangas, etc), watch the SFF movies they air, or play one of the numerous games they have on site. They also have SFF-themed cocktails such as the Death Star, the Sith, and the Lannister.
I'll probably go back there at least once before flying to Barcelona! Do check it out if ever you come to the City of Light! You won't be disappointed! ;-)
