Les guinguettes, dance hall-restaurants along the Marne, have been in existence since the 18th century, immortalized by Renoir in his paintings of frothy maidens lolling on riverbanks. These days, from March to December, a genuine mix of curious Parisians and suburban dance-hounds come to La Guinguette de L'Île du Martin-Pêcheur, situated in the southeastern suburb of Champigny, to partake of the moules frites served at the red-checked tables. Then they hit the dance floor as live bands belt out a mixture of foxtrots and rumbas. You can reach La Guinguette on the RER train to Champigny or by car.
