The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
How to get there
  • Ledru-Rollin • 4 min walk

THE bar you have to test if you are in Paris
Jan 2019 • Solo
I have the ultimate pleasure to live right next to this institution in Paris, which is not a good thing for my alcoholism... But for Le Calbar, I could let my liver go !

Don't get fooled by the small space inside : this bar is one of the top ten addresses in Paris where you can have a good time drinking some excellent cocktails. Here, Mixology is an art perfectly executed by bartenders in... Underwears ! Kind of a funny twist for a place preparing drinks at the same level of those made in famous palaces.

And this is what resumes the spirit of Le Calbar the best : a chill environment, a super friendly crew, some hyper quality drinks (and food too), a great taste of music and a beautiful setting. All you need to start your night :)

As if it wasn't enough, the specialty of the bar is... YOUR own creation. If you order a Surprise Me, one of the bartenders will ask you what alcohol you prefer, what taste, what emotion you want to feel, then will make a special creation just for you !! Each barman has his own style, so the creation can vary depending on who makes the cocktail.

If you have the opportunity, try coming at the opening during week days : the staff has more time to chat with you.

Brilliant Cocktails & Atmosphere

Small but cute bar in Paris! Discovered this by accident and we're so glad we did. No menus but instead the barman asked what you like and creates you something. Great tasting cocktails, friendly staff and reasonably priced!

Amazing! Must visit
Mar 2017 • Couples
First visit to Le Calbar recommended by a friend, and I must say the cocktails were amazing. The uniform is querky and unusual. you definately leave remembering the place for all the right reasons! Unsure of which cocktail to have? The staff are more than happy to make you something special if you give them an idea of what you like/dislike. Highly recommend visiting! A hidden gem ! P.s. mine was a Tutti Frutti the one on the right :)

Great cocktails in a quirky but fun setting
Jan 2017 • Friends
f you're looking for a cool place to have a cocktail or a snack before hitting the town, or afterwards, this is a great place to go. It's not very big, so you'll have to wait for a table, but it has a great cocktail list, the staff are very friendly, so it'll be worth it. I had a "LIMITED EDITION" - Rhum Plantation Original Dark – Rhum Calbar Edition – Liqueur de Shrubb – Martini Rubino. A great cocktail and defintely more-ish. I wil definiltey be back to try some more.

Not bad but very expensive
Aug 2016 • Friends
Well i gotta say the place its a bit hidden close to Bastille but looks quite nice. Good deco and cute tiny place

The fact of bein served by waiters in underwear is pointless...dont really see the interest

Went there saturday night to have some cocktails with friends and it was quite crowded. There was only a free table. We took it but we asked to drink it outside bcuz it was WAY TOO WARM. Really! I guess fr the cold this is a nice place, but last night it made us all sweat.

The bartender was nice to allow us drinkin in the entrance trying not to be noisy.

The cocktails were okay... Not too charged bt a lot more than the average in Paris. Not excellent either. Actually found better pretty close by. Thing is i dont enjoy paying 10eur for such a regular cocktail (and it was the cheapest). Maybe Parisians do ... Im order to boast that they went to the trendy place...a bit akward and not to smart tho. In the end too expensive for something not great.

not easy to find, but really worth the effort. nice setting, good bartenders, and any drink you can imagine.
and don't forget the "Blue de Bercy", which you can get served in a kettle to share among friends

Very chic and eccentric
This is an awesome spot. It's fairly small but way chic. The servers are very friendly and they all sport dapper attire but with boxer shorts. The drinks are unique and quite tasty. It's a bit expensive but totally with it.
