Maison Souquet: Cocktails for Sophisticated Sybarites

By now it’s well-known that Pigalle has no shortage of show-stoppers when it comes to cocktail bars. It’s only natural that Parisian cocktail culture would thrive there. While there are still plenty of sex shops and libertine ladies, this hotbed of hedonism now draws a crowd of pleasure-seekers looking to satisfy their sybaritic desires with liquids […]

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. In fact, it’s even more challenging to bring something fresh and new to the table. Whereas when I very first started writing about the Paris cocktail scene, it took serious scouting to find superior […]

Bespoke: Cocktails, Sliders and Brunch (Relocating in 2018)

Bespoke 3 rue Oberkampf 75011 I’m not one of those people who can crank out a blog post in 20 minutes. By the time I visit a place (sometimes more than once), get my thoughts in order, maybe make a fresh martini, pull it together to write things, recheck things, format things, get pictures up, […]

Hero: Korean BBQ + Cocktail in Paris

Hero 289, rue Saint-Denis Paris 75002 I’ve long been a fan of Korean food.  I’ve been making my own kimchi for over a decade and continue to work my way through the city’s Korean restaurants. So, when I read a few years back in a UK-based magazine that Korean food was trending, it seemed there […]

Le Coq: Cocktail Classes in Paris (CLOSED)

12 Rue du Château d’Eau 75010 Paris One of the aspects of cocktails that I’ve always appreciated is the element they add to entertaining. There’s something special about inviting people over and providing a momentary escape from the daily grind with good food, good company and good cocktails. Cocktails are a way to make an […]

Grand Pigalle: Hip Hotel Cocktails from ECC Group

Grand Pigalle Hotel 29 rue Victor Massé 75009 Paris  Given that craft cocktails are currently as fashionable as boutique or designer hotels, the two seem like a natural partnership for pulling in crowds in search of a la mode beds or beverages worth bragging about. Several years ago, Mama Shelter hit Paris with affordably chic […]

Club Rayé: Striped Parisian Cocktail Adventures (CLOSED)

Club Rayé 26 rue Dussoubs 75002 Paris People often ask where to go for some jazz with their drinks. So, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post about Club Rayé. Opened a few years ago by New York transplant, Kein Cross, Club Rayé fills Paris’ piano bar void. Here, Sheldon Forrest tickles the ivories of […]

Le Tres Particulier Serves Cocktails in a Secret Paris Garden

Très Particulier Bar Hotel Particulier 23 Avenue Junot 75018 Paris Summer is around the corner, so it’s time to start talking terraces. And, one of the city’s most divine and discrete of garden terraces is at the Hotel Particulier.  We’ve seen their bar the Tres Particulier on the blog before, but considering its recent revamping, […]
