Amazing cocktails, lovely staff, great music, cool atmosphere. No headaches the next morning. Only minus is the rather cranky bouncer but he is quickly forgotten after a couple of drinks.

This place is easy to miss as there is no signs outside except for a little plaque on the wall. When you walk in trough the door and the thick heavy velvet drapes and in to this little cosy room with wizards behind the bar. They were shaking and making magic in glasses, absolutely fantastic. I had a fruity, ginger... More

GO then it is not busy....it is small and gets packed. The drinks were spot on and the bartenders are genuine and good at their craft. Memorable. Bit hot and small. Do not go with more than 4people.

We arrived at the bar around 8:30 and the place was packed but the crowd was really cool. We managed to get a seat at the bar for my wife and enough room for me to stand beside her. Max, the bartender, was super cool - great English and was very creative with the cocktails. We looked at the drink... More

We stumbled past this mysterious bar when looking for a good spot to see in the new year. After popping in we didnt want to leave. Great drinks and very professional attentive and talented staff. Highly recommended.

This bar is absolutely fantastic! In relation to Paris prices it really isn't that bad either, at around 13 euros a cocktail, which is the going rate in the city of love (and these guys really do make their cocktails with love) The staff are top top quality and super talented, tell them what you fancy and they'll whip it...

My boyfriend and I came across this Cocktail club online and decided to suss it out ourselves. From the outside, it looks like a small unassuming space, easy to miss, with dim lighting and black velvet curtains. Once inside it's clear that it's the place to be. We weren't sure what we wanted when we got there as the cocktails... More

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.
