This bar is down an unremarkable street, but it's full every night, because of the free food deals. After 9p, Le Tribal Cafe offers free mussels and fries on Wednesday and Thursday and chicken couscous Friday and Saturday. Just sit down, order a drink, and your food will be brought to you. This deal is no secret with the university students, who come weekly to sit out on the terrace or inside the homey bar, and they stay all night, dancing to the North African music or chatting with other regulars. Once you have a seat, don't give it up. -Emily Monaco
