I walked in at 11pm and the place was almost completely empty. I decided to give it a shot, though, since I was already there and thirty as a mule. I started chatting with some of the locals (they are always willing to meet new people, especially foreigners). Around about midnight, I rose from my conversation to find that the bar was pretty much packed with guys and girls of all sorts. There is no one specific type of guy that goes to this bar, so everyone (even straights!) would feel comfortable.
The best part about B Machine is that there is a dance floor downstairs in an old wine cave. They play mainstream pop and hip hop remixes, and the crowd really gets into the music. It's a very positive, welcoming environment: as long as you're having fun, you'll fit right in. And the best part: you can get away with having a great night for less than 10€! Take that, le Marais!
