Paris wine bars open on Monday afternoon?

I arrive to Paris on a Monday afternoon in March, around 3pm. That's too late for lunch. Are there some wine bars open where I could get a nice plate of cheese / charcuterie and a glass of good wine? I'm staying in 11th area.

I was aiming for Au Passage but seems that they only open for Monday dinner. Septime is very close to my hotel but it's closed on Monday.

      June - are you certain they do food? I though their kitchen closed after the lunch service and reopened in te evening.

        Juves does not open until late afternoon for the evening meal on Monday. They are closed at noon on Monday.

          I thought I had gotten cheese mid-aft at Willi's, but maybe that's changed?

      2. Le Rubis has just what you want, and the price is right..

        1. So most of the wine bars close after lunch and don't even serve some cheese / charcuterie?

            On Mondays, correct. Most are not open, not even before or during lunch.ib

            One of very few exceptions is the excellent Le Rouge et Le Verre on rue Maubeuge, where you can get a glass and a plate of charcuterie & cheese on Monday afternoon until 4:30pm

              Thanks a lot! I guess that's my option then. Or maybe I'll just grab some snack and wait until dinner time. Do you know about Cuisine de Bar on Cherche-Midi? Their website says that they have all-day-dining. I guess that can be my snack then.

                Cuisine de Bar is basically a very uparket sandwich shop not a wine bar. Its good and probably open.

                Le Rubis is a great wine bar, they do plates of cheese and cold meats but i think their upstairs dining room will be closed.
