En Attendant L’Or – a little bit of Eastern Paris promise

En Attendant L'Or in Eastern Paris's 12th district

It’s a romantic notion, akin to an inherent idea alive in an abundance of souls worldwide, transcending time, tide and all mortal perception; a soft, quiet evening in the right quarter of that anciently magnificent city of Paris can surround one with a deliciously impenetrable aura of bliss.

Such an evening was hewed from the rain soaked streets of that wonderful metropolis in the 12th district, on the north bank of the Seine, from a quiet table for two on the pavement of En Attendant L’Or, an unassumingly perfect little bar that mademoiselle fortune threw in our way.

Watching the dampened throng dash backwards and forwards, whither does not concern us, whilst partaking of a leisurely glass or two of beer, over discourse with good friends, is time spent most agreeably. When the tenacity and volume of the rain persuaded us, finally, to repair to the cosiness of the interior, the pleasantness of the experience was not diminished even slightly, and we availed ourselves of the tempting provender, supplemented by further supplies of ale, with alacrity.

When it was eventually time to bend our steps back to our hotel, it was with a sweet sorrow that we left this beautiful establishment in our wake; good bars are plentiful, but perfect ones are found only once in a big blue moon.
