The library-bar of the Saint James Paris is one of the capital's most exclusive addresses. During the day, its access is restricted to members of the exclusive Saint James Club and hotel guests. It is open to the public from 7:00pm to 1:00am, Mondays through Saturdays. It is not possible to book a table.The head barman Judicaël Noël and his team offer an extensive menu of rare spirits and inventive cocktails, that can also be savoured in the gardens adorned with air-balloon-like arbors, when the weather allows. A great way to start an evening before tasting the cuisine of the Chef, Jean-Luc Rocha, in the dining room!

Great ambiance

We had a nightcap at the bar before heading to our room and it was great. I thought the service was good, but the atmosphere is amazing.

The library bar at the Saint James has a cozy, warm decor. We enjoy having a drink here in the evening when we're staying in the hotel, but we find many things about the experience that we wish were improved. First, the cocktail offerings need to be updated, or at a minimum, better described as shots of liquor. The flavor... More

The library bar sits inside the Saint James's Paris hotel, and while service on that side of he house was exceptional, service here was not good on the 3 occasions we dined or had drinks here. The ambiance is old world library, cozy seating, muted lighting. On our first trial, though it was relatively empty, we were told that certain... More

The location is in the area of where diplomats from all over the world live. Best for guys to be in business attire. Service is excellent. Price is high and the two stories of books are locked up. All and all, a great place. .

Fantastic cocktails, poor service. Dress the part if you want to fit in here. Great place to people watch or to meet up for drinks before dinner on the town.
