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... read more

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

Really enjoyed this bar... Probably not easy to find... We definitely walked past it at first!it looks great, really good ambience, attentive staff and great drinks. My only downer was the menus were only in French and being typically British we didn't really have a clue what we were ordering, that said we loved it!

This could be the best bar I have ever visited. Yes it does have the now-so-common speakeasy theme going for it, but it is much more. Not so easy to find but once in the barkeepers made the visit very enjoyable. Very knowledgeably but in no way pretentiously they guided me through their offering and had a go at making... More

The drinks were phenomenal and the bartender was attentive to our request. Spot on for every drink. We enjoyed ourselves so much we had 3 drinks each. Nice atmosphere and good music to keep you going.

This place is literally hidden away. If you can find it, you will discover a great place. The cocktails are some of the best I've ever had anywhere in the world. I would rate if her but I found the staff quite surly and not as cheery as they should be to be honest. Great atmosphere. Loved it

A cool small cocktail bar, as many say: You wouldn’t find it or go there if you didn’t know about it. Was there a Thursday night, very crowdy - hard to get a seat- But if you like good drinks, go there

After walking down the alley and finding the entrance, we were welcomed into a busy little bar. The place was nice and we were served in no time which was a surprise considering how busy it was. The cocktails were amazing and going to a secret bar is always fun, definitely take a stop here!

No wonder it is listed in the World's 50 Best Bars. Original, refined cocktails. Try it if you are looking for something special. Very nice neo-baroque atmosphere, good music, nice staff. Not cheap, but it's worth it!

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.
