The Museum is actually a very small basement bar with a large selection of absinthe. It has a real honky-tonk feel, as there was a good piano player the night we visited. Be sure to check out the hats.

Museum? More like a bar with some antiques in it! But in saying that, its nice to enter a cellar like bar, quite small, but with a charming atmosphere. A large selection of Absinthe available. The staff were friendly and the manager was very informative! When its full and everyone is drinking, the atmosphere is lots of fun. If in... More

Ok, so this place was high on my must do list since I missed out the previous time that I was in France. It was a gorgeous Saturday Afternoon and my intentions were to spend no more than a half an hour in here just so I could finally see what all the fuse was about. Bottom line, before I... More

Go through the shop and down the stairs, and you will feel like you have travelled in time. A small place packed with absinthe memorabilia and accoutrements. Friendly owner and a good selection of hats to wear!

This is the only bar I know which is classified as a historic monument, due to the Roman well found therein. Obviously a wide range of absinthe, but there's also wine and locally produced beer if you so wish, not to mention the collection of hats of every hue and colour that one may perch upon one's head. Add to... More

This place is terrific! The atmosphere was great. There were a ton of hats to try on, some very cool absinthe-themed posters and tables, and the owner was very friendly. He explained how to consume absinthe, and made recommendations. It was a great time!

All kinds of absinthe to see and the bar/ museum in the cave basement was awesome. Open 9am till midnight! The owner is very friendly and will explain everything. Good time and something different to see.

We called into the Absinthe Bar in Antibes, or "The Cave" as it is fondly referred too, in early July 2012. It was great fun! We were only going in to try a drink, but ended up staying for three! Its a great atmosphere and there are lots of different types of absinthe to try! There are also lots of... More
