If you know any Stanford students, you probably haven’t seen them since Friday. They’re all hiding in their rooms which, sadly, is exactly what I’m doing. It’s dead week so finals are just around the corner. I have a 3 hour final and two 10 page research papers (all in french mind you) at the beginning of next week. So instead of actually going out, I’ll write about my favorite bar in Paris.

It’s called Bar Dix, or Dix Bar. I’m really not sure which. But that’s pronounced deece, like the french number 10. Which is convenient since it’s at 10 Rue de l’Odéon. The Odéon métro stop is one of my favorites. Not only does it have a lot of great bars, but it also is deep in the heart of the Latin Quarter of Paris. In the area are many of the more hip and unique landmarks. Like The Procope, Paris’ first café from the 17th Century, still in good form. Or how about Marat’s apartment, where the famous radical journalist and revolutionary was murdered in his bathtub by Charlotte Corday in 1791. It’s an area truly steeped in history and is great for wandering and exploring. More
