The best cocktails in Paris, London or NYC

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!!!

We had been told about this bar so set off to find it. We failed and stopped off in Jefrey's (five doors down from it it turned out) for what turned out to be a marathon cocktail session. We eventually made it to the Experimental (our mixologist at Jefrey's actually took us!) and it was great. Really good atmosphere and... More

Very nice cocktails bar on a lovely street filled up only with restaurants and bars. Very nice decoration, small and intimate. It gets packed late in the evening and even more during the weekends. Go early at 7pm when they open and have a drink before diner. Lovely conversation with the mixologist and good exchange about other bars all over... More

We are quite particular about cocktails and this place met all of our criteria. Creative, yet adept at the traditional cocktails, extremely friendly, genuine interest in the craft and a diverse, fun crowd. ++good.

This place is fantastic, subtle entrance with a small plaque denoting the place giving it the feel of a 1930's speakeasy. There was a very relaxed ambiance and we were made to feel really welcome by mix maestro Max. The drinks menu was great and not surprisingly more, well experimental, cocktails. We tried one of these to start with and... More

We had several amazing cocktails while we were there, it was very small, but it was not jam packed. I can recommend the coing coing and old Cuban. The atmosphere and music were really great, the only problem was that it was extremely not obvious from the outside that it was a bar, the windows were blacked out, the sign... More

Cool bar, prohibition style....no looking in through the thick curtains. Super service, and an interesting menu of cocktails. Hadn't heard of any of them so it lives up to its name....,

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.
