Paris Cocktail Adventure: Andy Wahloo

Andy Wahloo 69, Rue des Gravilliers 75003 Paris Tel: 01 42 71 20 38 Apparently, I’ve been remiss in placating the Gods of Successful Terrace Visits.

Oxyd Bar 26 Avenue Jean-Aicard 75011 Paris Tel: 01 48 06 20 81 Sure first impressions are important.

Paris Cocktail Adventure: Prune de Nuit

Prune de Nuit 12 rue Marie et Louise 75010 Paris Tel : 01 40 03 63 27 Although curious by nature, I have no desire to know what people are saying behind my back. If it’s something bad, I don’t want to know. If it’s something good, then I’ll just feel an irrational responsibility to […]

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 […]

4 Elements 149, Rue Amelot 75011 Paris Tel : 01 47 00 34 11 In search of something positive from last Wednesday’s Cocktail Adventures, I’m posting on our follow up bar to Hotel du Nord.
