Ober Mamma: Italian Aperitivos & Cocktails

So, in my last post, I was going on about finding the new, the hidden, the things that everyone hasn’t yet discovered…basically bringing something to the table that isn’t already all over the blogosphere. But, that doesn’t mean, I’m not also going to hit the hype spots and talk up trendy tipples if they deserve […]

Le Cinq Codet: Hit and Miss Cocktail Adventures

These days it’s so easy to write about cocktails…everybody’s doing it! Okay, well, maybe it’s not easy to write about cocktails well.

le Depanneur: SoCal Cocktails and Burgers Come to Paris

le Depanneur 27 Rue Pierre Fontaine 75009 Paris When le Depanneur opened a few decades back as a late night “American” joint it served cheap drinks and pulled in a post club crowd.  After a brief closure, its recent reopening generated a high level of expectation thanks to the people and places involved.  Nightlife power […]

Bistrologist: Swanky Paris Cocktail Bar

Bistrologist 16, avenue de Friedland 75008 Paris With new and emerging cocktail scenes, it’s sometimes the bartender more than the bar itself that makes a place.
