Novotel Bercy Does Not So Great Cocktails

Novotel Bercy 85, de Bercy 75012 Paris Tel: 01 43 42 30 00 Forest fact: I have a soft spot for average, bog standard, budget chain hotels you find scattered along the freeways of middle America. You know the ones I mean: they always have sufficient strip mall & General Dollar Store action close by, […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Le Marlusse et Lapin

Le Marlusse et Lapin 14 rue Germain Pillon 75018  Paris I’ll admit it: I can be a control freak sometimes. But, I’ve been a busy girl lately so this week I decided to abdicate responsibility and let Mr Matt choose our cocktail bar. He sent me a link for le Marlusse and Lapin, which has […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: the Bottle Shop

The Bottle Shop 5, Rue Trousseau 75011 Paris Tel: 01 43 14 28 04 I’m eating take-out Chinese for lunch right now. Take out Chinese is definitely not my favorite lunch, but occasionally it fits the bill: convenient, quick, cheap & filling. So while I wouldn’t recommend this place to my culinarily-demanding foodie friends as […]

Paris Cocktail Adventures: Panic Room

Panic Room 101, Rue Amelot 75011 Paris Tel: 01 58 30 93 43 We entered through a dingy front entrance that recalls the backdoor of a rockin‘ music club rather than a sleek sophisticated cocktail venue. But, no matter we are on the hunt for great mixed drinks, not necessarily upscale fancy decor. Once inside […]

Paris Cocktail Adventures: Baron Samedi

Le Baron Samedi 12, Rue des Goncourt 75011 Paris I’ve been having a little motivation problem for the last few weeks. I can’t seem to get on top of a growing list of things to do and could really use a swift kick in my, um, shaker to get on with things. But, it’s hard […]

Paris Cocktails at Sublim Eiffel Hotel Bar

Sublim Eiffel 94 Boulevard Garibaldi 75015 Paris Tel. +33 1 40 65 95 95 Black toilet paper kind of freaks me out. Okay, now that we have that out of the way…. It’s August in Paris. And, no one works during August in Paris. However, I seem to be working like a maniac these days, […]

Bateau El Alamein Quai François Mauriac (near Bibliothèque François Mitterrand) 75013 Paris Tel: 06 82 04 82 46 When I was about 10 years old, I was building a cardboard box house in the backyard.

Wednesday Night Cocktail Adventure: Oxyd

Oxyd Bar 26 Avenue Jean-Aicard 75011 Paris Tel: 01 48 06 20 81 Sure first impressions are important. But, they’re not enough to hold your interest if you find yourself disappointed with what’s behind that flirty glance. And, let’s face it: we’re looking for serious relationships here at 52martinis, not just passing fancies! When I […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Clin d’Oeil

Clin d’Oeil 15, rue Copreaux Paris 75015 Téléphone: 01 43 06 83 35 You know what it means when you ask your girlfriend if the guy she’s trying to set you up with is cute and she answers: “He’s really nice and he’s got a great sense of humor.” Well, if you ask me if […]

Paris Cocktail Adventures: le Tarmac

Le Tarmac 33 rue de Lyon Paris 12ème Tél : 01 43 41 97 70 Is Big Brother watching us? Even while we’re drinking cocktails? When I arrived at le Tarmac and found Ritu already there, she showed me her receipt for her monthly metro pass. She pointed out that the receipt shows the activity […]
