If there's not already a bar in Adams Morgan that does the baby bottle thing, I'm going to start one and rake in the bucks.

I heard about that place but never went when I was living in Paris. I'm definitely going to make it a priority next trip. Too funny! And, only in Paris!



I've actually been there myself. You depicted it exactly how it is. Although it is very unique and quirky, it is definitely a great experience every time. Anne said it right, only in Paris!


I visited this off the beaten path restaurant in 2006 and loved it. The food is not 4 star but the fun you will have makes up for it. It is cramped and the staff is hilarious. Oh, if you get burnt by the hot fondue grease they are quick with the lotion, it's healed fine thanks.


The last time I was there was 1988! I'm glad to hear that it's still in business!

Went to Le Refuge des Fondus when I was visiting Paris in Feb 2007. Seating is cramped so you become fast friends with those around you. Met people from all over Europe that evening and had one of the best nights of my trip...have the baby bottle as a memento. Look forward to going again!!


Oh man. This place is legendary. I spent every spring break in Paris and a group of about 15 of us would get blitzed on baby bottles, stumble down towards pigale, smoke 3 or 4 hookas, and then make our way to the irish bar.

Amazing memories.

I was there in 1995 and glad that it is still there. Last time I was there it was 2002 and they were full. I wonder how much does it cost now? It was like...90 francs (about $13) back in 1995...

I agree that this would only happen in Paris, which makes the city so special. I have a friend who experienced this and it was apparently hilarious, I've always promised to however experience it myself. Too funny.

I lived in Paris for three months this spring and this restaurant was one of my most memorable experiences! That description of the owner was spot on, he was so funny. I loved stepping over the table to get into the booth, it's probably not the best place to wear a dress because of that! I will always remember my first time there, that has to be the most giddy drunk I've ever been.
