Hôtel du Nord

This canal-side café-restaurant is one of my favourite haunts in Paris. It's the eponymous setting of René Clair's 1938 film - which I watched ages ago and really must re-watch. When I'm there I also think about the wonderful 1934 movie l'Atalante by Jean Vigo, which also includes scenes along the canal.
