le 47 at Chateau Frontenac: Paris Hotel Cocktail Bar

54 rue Pierre Charron 75008 Paris 01 53 23 13 13 One of fun things about writing a booze-related blog is meeting lots of interesting people. Visiting imbibers usually end up joining me for a drink or two, which is how I found myself at Curio Parlor with Chris of SpiritsReview. Afterwards, Chris and his […]

Le Lucien of Hotel Fouquet Cocktail Bar

Le Lucien Bar, Fouquet Hotel 46 avenue George V 75008 Paris 01 40 69 60 00 The Bedazzler is a “cheap-ass rhinestone-studding tool favored by art teachers and over-excitable soccer moms everywhere, the biggest piece of crap sold on late-night TV since the Thighmaster, the reason women own shirts with glittery kitty-cats on them.” Oh […]

le Forvm: Paris’ Oldest Family Owned Bar (relocated)

Le Forvm 4 Blvd Males- herbes 75008 Paris Tel: +33 (0)1 42 65 37 86 How can you resist those boys?! This little bit of blog love is overdue. I reviewed the Forvm quite some time ago and wasn’t non-plussed, but didn’t give it the ravest of reviews either. Over the past year, I’ve been […]

Paris Fashion Cocktail Adventure: Hotel de Crillon Vogue Bar

Hotel de Crillon Vogue Fashion Bar 10 Place de la Concorde 75008 Paris Tel: +33 (0)1 44 71 15 39 I first got word of the temporary Vogue/Crillon bar collaboration via tweet from I heart Paris who always has good info on fun fashion and other cool stuff in Paris. During fashion week one of […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Cafe Chic

Cafe Chic 126 Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honore 75008 Paris Tel: 01 45 63 69 69 I love learning new words. So I was quite pleased when Justine joined me for martinis last night – both for the nice company and the term she introduced me to: “Clip Bar.” Apparently, a clip bar is an establishment into […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: La Villa

La Villa 37 avenue de Friedland 75008 Paris Tel: 01 82 28 75 08 I’m spending some holiday time this year in warm Caribbean climes where I’ll be partaking in some rum-intaking. Happily some of my favorite drinking partners – Matt, Violaine, Wendy & Dayne – are joining me on vacation. But before leaving for […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: le Secret – CLOSED (see Bistrologist)

Le Secret 16 avenue de Friedland Paris 75008 Tel:01-53- 53-02-02 I think Aveze tastes a bit like dirty grass (in a good way). Now, I’m not a professional bartender – rather a professional customer – and I’m feeling pretty carefree today, so I’m going to let myself slide with that personal but not entirely accurate […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Ladureé

Ladurée 75 Avenue des Champs Elysées Paris 8ème Tel. : + 33 1 40 75 08 75 I’m not a sweets person, but when it comes to macarons, that’s a whole different story. My absolute favorite in Paris are Pierre Hermé, but Ladurée turns out some excellent ones, as well. Obviously, I like cocktails, so when […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Hotel de Sers

Hotel de Sers 41, Avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie 75008 Paris Réservations : 01 53 23 75 75 The glowing bar at the svelte and swanky Hotel des Sers beckons as you walk through the long entry way, past trendy arm chairs and off-beat interior decor (think rainbow striped faux animal skin rug & foam […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Hôtel Plaza Athénée

Hôtel Plaza Athénée 25 avenue Montaigne 75008 Paris Tel: +33 1 53 67 66 65 The Emperor’s not wearing any clothes! Okay, I’m exaggerating. A bit. Or perhaps I’m just jaded. I’ve said it before: nice hotel bars are nice – indulgently nice. Whether you’ve got the classic, book-lined walls, cozy chairs and “gentlemen will […]
