We had read about ECC on Thrillist and were eager to try it. The drinks are well-made and nothing but unique. My favorite was "Je suis Suedois" which means "I am Swedish." Definitely a place to experience!

I consider myself a bit of a cocktail aficionado and when I hears about a "secret" cocktail bar here in Paris while I was visiting I just had to check it out. I went with a new travel buddy on a week night and it wasn't as excessively busy as it has been for other reviewers. But that certainly had... More

What a gem! This "Secret" speakeasy is packed from wall to wall, even though they limit the number of peaople going in. It's very worth it, the drinks are excellent, the bar quirky and funky, and the DJ is playing the perfect volume and tempo of non-mainstream excellent jams. I would go back again and again.

We stopped here for a night cap on a spring night in Paris, and were sure glad we did. The craft cocktails were fantastic-- I'm very particular about my old fashioneds, and mine was made perfectly. I cannot remember the name of the bartender, but he had a killer beard, and was a Brit. Even more than the actual cocktails... More

Locating the bar: The bar is deliberately well hidden which adds to its appeal and 'exclusive' feel. If you use the address above in Google maps street view it points you directly at the front door (there's a man wearing a hat texting outside the door) although at first you might not realise this is it. The windows are blacked... More

Great late night bar and amazing cocktails based on champange. Although on the street level you can't see in thru the curtains or door but don't let that put you off, The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming

Met friends for drinks and the waiter was very helpful, got us a table, and once we'd had a first round he gave excellent recommendations for complimentary flavours to follow up with. Some of the best cocktails I've had and a fun bar to boot.

The usual cocktails at a high price. Staff quiet arrogant. But then again, they think Paris is the Capital of the world. Will not go again

You wouldn't get funny looks if you are seen wandering up and down the street where this bar is. It is a tiny venue, discreetly signed and entered through a cloak and dagger type entrance. After a taxi ride across paris and a 15 minute walk up and down the street we hit gold! It is well worth the trip,... More

I really like this bar a lot! It is meant to feel “New Yorkish” and I think it accomplishes that pretty well. The weekends (thurs/fri/sat) are packed, so big groups might not find it ideal as the seating space is very limited. If you go on a crowded night, you might well find yourself in the ‘passage’ getting bumped around... More
