“Delicious cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

The cocktails use many unconventional liquor and the bartender explained us about the different ingredients and helped us chose the appropriate cocktails. We were surprised to see spirits such as aquavit and cachaca being used in non-traditional and delicious cocktails.
The price is around 12 euro per cocktail, which can be considered a good price since many tourist-trap bars in Paris charge 10-12 euro for simple cocktails (such as Martine and Americano) which are not well prepared.
If you want start the night with a nice and cheap dinner and end with an amazing cocktail I suggest La Crêpe Dentelle (2 min from there).

“Nice place for friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We've been to this place based on a friend's reference. The place was nice and cozy. The music was nice. It is really a nice place to have some cocktails and chat with friends in a nice atmosphere.

“All about the cocktail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

This place was the perfect place to end an evening. Casaul and low key you can sit back and drink your cocktail.

“Not what we expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Maybe its because I'm from the UK which has lots of good bars, but this place was disappointing.

Don't mind it being expensive, but cocktails nothing special and small room was cramped and uncomfortable. Had to fight to get to the bar too.

These bars are ten to a penny in the UK, many of them 100% better than this place. Next time will stick to the cafes and bistros for a late night drink.

“Great atmosphere, good drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

my boyfriend and I are a bit dorky about cocktails and did some research on bars to visit before our trip to paris. often when traveling, i crave a good, solid manhattan. this spot, owned by the same owners of curio parlor, was fun to find and great to hang out in. the drink list is original and unique - though, i have to admit i preferred the drink list at curio parlor - and i thought the staff was wonderful. there is an american woman who works there (i believe from the midwest) and she was really friendly. the bartender who made our drinks was a man who actually gave a damn about the manhattan he made. the lighting and music were great and it wasn't at all crowded. it was a bit expensive but i think the vibe more than compensates for it. besides, the drinks were so strong (in a good way) that my friends and i only had 2 before we had to call it a night.
