2 a.m. - Be Selective

It’s full of tourists now, but from the early to mid-twentieth century Le Select was the place for artists to eat, sleep (waiterswere told not to wake them) and argue. Opened in 1925, the café was a favourite of Henry Miller, who wrote about it in The Tropic of Cancer. Hemingway and Picasso were regulars, too. It was the first café in Montparnasse to stay open all night, and even today you can still visit in the wee hours.

Le Select: 99 Boulevard du Montparnasse.
