A music venue and bar is changing its entire 18-year-old business model just to break even.
Olivier Conan runs Barbes based on human connection.
"By being in a room, in a small room with strangers, you start seeing the world in a different way a little bit," said Conan.
What once was a concert space is now stocked with wine and spirits.
"[We] have the same kind of curatorial care that we did for music, and think of wine and booze as an expression of culture," said Conan.
