Ephemeral Cocktail Adventures: Cointreau Prive

Popup bar at Hotel Particulier 23 avenue Junot 75018 Paris Earlier this week I received a small sleek black envelope in the mail containing a bracelet of delicately thin purple ribbon with a simple silver key – the ‘key’ to the ephemeral Cointreau Prive, hosted for the next month or so in the lovely Hotel […]

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 […]

Park Hyatt Vendome Hotel Bar Does Great Drinks

Park Hyatt Vendome 5 Rue de la Paix 75002 Paris 01 58 71 12 34 This will be a quickie! A few weeks back, Kate came up from Geneva and we treated ourselves to a fancy, spendy afternoon drink (well, two) at the ParkHyattVendome.

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Delaville Cafe

Delaville Cafe 34 boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle 75010 Paris Tel: +33 (0)1 48 24 48 09 It’s probably my admittedly perverse bent, but I like venues that have been transformed from spaces of unusual and different purpose – especially if their original purpose is a bit seedy and sordid. So, Delaville, with its naughty brothel […]

Random Paris Cocktail Adventure: Baboto CLOSED

HOLD ON….BEFORE YOU THINK ABOUT GOING HERE, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS BAR IS NOW CLOSED! Baboto 12/14, Rue de la Ferronnerie 75001 Paris Between NYE travels and my recent Seattle/San Francisco trip, I’ve had a slow start to my 2010 blogging. But, I’m back and looking forward to finding some excellent cocktails this year […]

Hotel de l’Abbaye: Secret Paris Terrace Cocktail Bar

Quickie: Hotel de l’Abbaye 10 rue Casette Paris 75006 Tel: 01 45 44 38 11 It’s the season for year end drinks & festive apertifs. The girls and I decided that warranted an elegant cocktail apero so we decided to try the bar at L’Hotel de l’Abbaye. I’ll tell you right now, I don’t know […]

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 […]

Le Tres Particulier at Hôtel Particulier Montmartre 23, avenue Junot 75018 Paris Tel. : 00 33 1 53 41 81 40 Here’s a little secret about me. I can hold a grudge like no body’s business. No need to tell me – I know this is a really immature quality and as I get older […]
