All of the other gay bars in the area were so fun and very welcoming of me and my partner. That being said, we arrived at Le Cox and were immediately told to leave because we weren't men. I guess if you can afford to refuse business, that's your prerogative, but it was pretty rude the way it was said.... More

Such a buzz inside and outside this bar. Great DJs, and the bar staff are up there with the fastest servers in the world! I was in awe watching them work. A very friendly atmosphere, and I'll definitely be going back when I next visit Paris.

Very unpleasant doormen and bartenders. There are better bars to visit in le Marais without the attitude. I hated it, without doubt the worst bar in the area, luckily there are much better bars nearby.

Went to visit here with friends. The security staff would not let one of us in due to an injury caused by a disability. He was exceptionally rude and made my friend feel uncomfortable for the rest of the evening.

Cheapest beers in Paris - all the action of social banter in Paris during Happy Hour. Mingle with locals and tourists alike. Don't be afraid or shy by the masses. Just jump in. I waited for my 8th trip to Paris to conjure up the courage. Should have done it years ago. This crowd wants to have fun. Period.

So my partner and I decided to head out to the Marais district on our first trip to Paris. We stopped in at Cox. The bar is much smaller than it appears online and the selection of hard liquors is very limited. The bartenders are hot though not all that friendly. The customers stick to small cliques and are not... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
