Fantastic!

Loved this place, hidden door on an empty street. You wouldn't know it was there with a doorman outside not giving it away! Staff were friendly, perfect place to have a brilliant cocktail with some friends. Would recommend to anyone.

Only poor because we had travelled a long way with friends to experience the bar only to find a note on the door giving dates when they were closed. Shame they never gave the information on their website.Would have been helpful.

Small hidden spot, but really not too hard to find as there is a bouncer sitting outside and a gold sign on the wall. The drinks were awesome, the bartenders were great. Seemed to be a mix of locals and tourists, but very worthwhile a visit while in Paris.

This place was recommended on a number of sites. Its a cool bar although we were there on independence day where the menu was limited. That wasnt a concern but drinking whiskey with a paper straw out of paper cup just doesnt sit right. Other than that night, a cool place to have a drink.

Fun atmosphere, great drink. The bartender didn't just throw a couple of ingredients together but came up with a delicious invention of his own. Others ordered different drinks and were equally satisfied with what was brought to the table.

OK -- this is NOT an easy place to find, even with a GPS! We were told to go here by our waiter at Frenchie's Wine Bar down the street a bit -- and were we glad we did. It was June 21, so summer solstice and the whole city was in a party mood. After finding the place (we... More

Excellent choice, this venue is very beautiful, a mixture of old Paris and New York loft. The secret cocktail is changing every week. The one I tried was amazing, based on Cognac.

The spot is cool--dark with adequate seating. The night I went (which was a Thursday) the DJ was really good! The drinks were just okay, however. I had a few and none were quite... right. But I guess that's why it's experimental! I'd go again because I liked the overall vibe and the music is right. But if you're going... More

I regularly go to ECC bars, cocktails are just amazing and prepared by selected barmen. It's always a pleasure, when I am in London, Paris or New-York to spend a few hours in these bars... I recommend!!!

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
