If you are looking for a bar that is out of the ordinary, this is the place to go. If you do a google search just type in Weird bar Saint Malo and you will find it at the top of the search. Already outside the bar there are some weird things on the wall and over the door. Once... More

Definitely glad we popped in for a drink during our trip to St. Malo as we just had to experience one of the quirkiest bars we've ever seen! It's sooo different, it has to be seen when in St. Malo...and the swings at the bar are great! Worth paying a bit over the odds for drinks in my opinion (€11.50... More

We visit St Malo a few times a year and always try to pop in for a couple of drinks as we tour the ramparts. It has a different vibe to all other bars within the walls and what is there not to like about functional swings at the bar and hundreds of dolls. The prices are reasonable and the... More

Me and my boyfriend visited this bar / cafe when we went to St Malo at the weekend. The decor is amazing and the staff are friendly. Would recommend to anyone visiting St Malo

We stumbled across this place by accident by taking a short cut down one of the many crossing roads in Saint Malo. There are quite a few bars and cafes but this place is special. Hanging seats at the bar, cosy seats in the bar. The place is full of strange ornaments and pictures, all a bit bizarre but great... More

So you are walking past , you look through the window & what do you see? You are not sure so you venture in , seats suspended from the ceiling, puppets everywhere, it's a bit different to say the least, the toilet is a bit like a confession box with wild west doors! yes, it is a touristy place &...

We stumbled across this great place mid morning on a weekday. Thoroughly enjoyable - especially looking at all the artefacts. Friendly service with wifi.

This quirky little spot is a fantastic place. Our group popped in twice--and each bartender was friendly and fun and welcomed us as we reveled in the swingy and zany decor. We were dressed for a fancy dinner at our hotel around the corner, the staff and patrons tolerated our photo shoot and the bartender patiently walked us through a... More

We always try to come here when in St Malo. Staff are so friendly and its great way to pass time sitting on a swing sipping a glass of wine.

Popped in to have a look at this quirky place. It's amazing, definitely worth visiting if you are wondering around the centre of St Malo. You would not believe the internal decoration and theme of this place. A must visit for any tourist. Try the hanging swing bar stools! 👍👍
