This is one of my favourite bars in London and a regular spot for a beer before the Arsenal games. In my mind it’s an American biker bar, although it’s probably a little too American to ever exist over there. There’s posters of Chuck Norris films on the wall, license plates tacked to the floor, and Lynyrd Skynrd or Johnny Cash seem to be playing permanently on the jukebox. They also have four pool tables, pinball and table football, so it’s also something of a lad’s playground and the female barstaff treat you with that slight disdain that has you coming back begging for more dodgy Amstel. The food is TexMex fare served in huge helpings and tastes great. Just don’t look in the kitchens!

This is a tribute to one of the most famous French social and street photographers, Robert Doisneau. During his life he was able to capture many little moments of everyday Parisian life with humanity and grace. His photos, full of poetry and humor, tell the ordinary life in the suburbs of the big French capital, away from the richest central areas of the city. Read more after the jump!
