Wednesday Cocktail Adventure: Hotel Concorde Lafayette

Hotel Concorde Lafayette 3 Place du General Koenig 75017 Paris La la, la la la la, la la la, la la. 10 points to anyone who guesses what I’m singing right now! Who knows what those points go to, but if you’re competitive like I am, you’ll give it a try anyway. I’ll get into […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Le Doll (closed?)

Le Doll 104 Blvd de Clichy Paris 75018 Tel: 01 82 09 47 42 Maybe I’m a closet pervert. I just realized, I’ve always lived close to “redlight” districts. In Seattle, I was just off of Aurora where the working ladies congregate. In Geneva, it was the Paquis, just blocks away from the hostess bars. […]

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 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 […]

Wednesday Cocktail Adventures: Le Magnifique

Le Magnifique 25, Rue de Richelieu 75001 Paris Tel: 01 40 60 70 80 Ages ago I went to NYC with a friend and we went to some new in spot – the kind of club where you stand outside and the doorman picks and chooses among the hopefuls, granting access to the lucky few. […]

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, […]

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Flute (closed)

Flute 19, Rue de l’étoile 75017 Paris Tel : 01 45 72 10 14 I have very few guiding life principles. Aside from general stuff, you know like being a nice person, blah, blah, blah, I can think of three things that I hold as personal self-evident truths: 1. Never turn down a chance to […]

Paris Cocktail Adventures: Le Comptoir

Le Comptoir 37, Rue Berger, 75001 Paris Tel : 01 40 26 26 66 How do you spell “myeh“? You know the sound you make when something neither really strongly displeases nor pleases you, just leaves you feel rather “whatever” about something? Meh? Myeah? Mmmhhugh? I think you get where I’m going. I’m feeling rather […]
