BARS FROM THE PAST. La Catedral in Lima. What is today only a ruin on the intersection between Puente del Ejército and Avenida Argentina, was before a bar that will be forever engraved in literature history as it was at this “chingana” where Mario Vargas Llosa’s classic novel Conversación en La Catedral took place. The second photo shows the Peruvian author as he made a visit at the bar in 1970, sitting pretty much at the same place as where the book’s two main characters Santiago Zavala and Ambrosio Pardo were having a four hour long conversation about life during the regime of military dictator Manuel Odría.

THIS IS A GOOD SNACK. Yesterday’s ”Pariserbøf” at the lovely gem Rabes Have in Copenhagen. Meat Patty on toast with an egg yolk, horseradish, capers and beetroot. Preferably washed down with irresponsible amounts of Akvavit.

BARS IN MOVIES. Young meets old at the fictional bar Bleeker’s Café in the classic picture The Wild One from 1953. This was the original outlaw biker movie and the role as bad boy Jonny Strabler made Marlon Brando the iconic poster-boy of a generation. Pop me dad!

“This is good. Even though the cocktail list at Central Congress is filled with potent liquor-heavies that could make any loudmouthed Texan oil baron fall of his chair, there are not many traces of vainglory or male-chauvinism to be seen. Gone are all those self-appointed scientists measuring whiskey as if they have discovered a liquid cure against self-deception. Absent are as well those tragic symptoms of inferiority who in their backslick and bowties believe they can squeeze the socio-hierarchical gap towards some of their more well-off customers by being rude to other mortals and by placing themselves in a ferocious and almost pervert state of cocktail overshake. Instead, there is just a casual German dude doing just what he is supposed to, that is being very casually German. It is a pleasant scenario as this often involves a rather frosty attitude towards elitist manners but a quirky fascination for the accurate detail. It is enough nerdy to be good but sufficiently carefree to not invite severe sentiments of loath. All in all a likeable trait.” It is finally bar number 36 out of 1000: Central Congress in Hamburg.

ON THE PISHADOO. Thoughtful bathroom design is crucial. Made a quickie in Paris yesterday and had a drink at the slick cocktail-bistro Marrow. Serenity now!

Thank you France. Three weeks of memorable bars, restos and plain and simple good times. BUT NOW, we are only about this city and all those great spots below us.

THIS PLACE! Don’t got enough dough for Château What or just don’t care for uptight conventional stuff? Then this natural wine bar on Rue Camille Godard is probably where to get your buzz on in Bordeaux.

If you know anything about anything then you should lay your hat at Le Grand Hotel de Clermont when in Paris. This is not because of the claustrophobic twin rooms that are just sufficiently clean enough for the modest rate of €80. Neither is it because of the godforsaken vending machine in the lobby that steals your money when you are craving a Snicker’s in the middle of the night. It is because of the small hotel bar on the first floor. By its faithful admirers it is referred to as Chez Ammad after the owner who has been running it for more than five decades and besides being a Parisian textbook zinc bar, it is really a cute piece of Paris history. Edith Piaf, who rented a longterm room at the hotel before she made it into stardom, used to come here for drinks with her lover - the famous boxer Marcel Cerdan. His boxing gym was also located next door. This photo is from Tuesday’s semifinal against Belgium. The bar went wild all night.

Yes, it is in the middle of St Germain and it may have a brutish rep of both attracting and tormenting green tourists but I just can’t stop liking La Palette. The Art Deco back room is beautiful and just picturing how Jim Morrison used to sit here writing weird poetry during his time in Paris is reason enough.

Had some high stakes for this country-ass detour. In the middle of the French nowhere lays this historical bar and I have been wondering if it was going to be worth the long, sweaty effort to drag myself and my 2-year old kid to the secluded town of Saulieu just for a glimpse of Café Parisien. It totally was. Opened in 1832, this café is very special and one of the old, genuine remains of French bar history. The local train station has been disused for a while so one needs to rely on a rather unreliable bus line to get here without a car. If behind the wheels it is however a great destination if around the national park of Morvan. Pure gold.

THIS PLACE! Some mad veal kidneys in creamy mustard sauce is just a swipe away. Dish of the year!
