If there’s ever a word we dislike seeing used in a PMU betting shop’s name, it’s that of “modernist.” It’s just as absurd as “Buddhist,” “royalist,” and “environmentalist”. “Reformist” maybe, if trade unionists meet up there afterhours. But since this one is called Dada, we’ll accept it! In the roomy, Mondrian-esque space, ex-journalist Gaylor Olivier keeps java drinkers happy during the day with specialty coffee and alternative soft drinks. Once night falls, make way for living vermouths, well-chosen whiskeys, natural wines and craft beers, not to mention the shaken specialties – like the rosé Dadaphone that combines raspberry eau-de-vie, kirsch and homemade bissap (€10). To go with all that? A slice of vegan tonka bean banana bread in the afternoon, hummus at apéro hour… all to be nibbled while watching a surrealist film projected above the bar on the weekends.
