Bar Tabac embodies the spirit of the Tabacs in France—the small storefronts and annexes to bars where people buy lottery tickets, chewing gum and, of course, tobacco. Located in the heart of Cobble Hill, Bar Tabac is home to one of the largest Bastille Day celebrations in the United States. The revolution gets considerably noisy when Smith Street is covered in sand, the petanque tournament gets into full swing, and the national TV networks descend on this little stretch of French Independence revelry. But the holiday's end is just the beginning.
