The famous bar of a thousand stories. The place for discerning Parisians to settle down amongst the deep leather armchairs and discreet conversation and lose themselves in our nightly live jazz.

Our second visit to Bar 228 last Friday, the first being pre-COVID when we had a memorable time in this extraordinarily beautiful location. However, this visit felt slightly different. The staff were very pleasant but the cocktails we ordered were not up to standard. You expect to pay a premium for an outstanding product, but these drinks tasted like they had been mixed by a novice. Our espresso martinis contained far too much vodka, little coffee flavour, barely any crema and no beans. We will return when next in Paris but choose different drinks. Yes, we could have expressed our disappointment on the evening, but considering we were in one of the finest hotels in the world, we felt we shouldn’t have had to complain, and would expect more experience and consistency at such a wonderful establishment.

It's a one word title because that is quite sufficient to describe the experience here. We visited to see Jimmy the bartender who mixed drinks with Ina Garten. Sadly, he's retired. However, the current staff was more than a match for the task at hand. Exceptional cocktails in a magnificently beautiful space. Elegant wait staff. Wonderful live music. It's the kind of place that makes you feel just a little bit more because you're there. Beware the sticker shock as it isn't cheap, but it's well worth it. This will be a pilgrimage spot every time we go to Paris. Bring somebody you love.

Stopped mid afternoon for a drink. I had this on my list of bars to check out in Paris. Very beautiful. We enjoyed a drink in luxurious atmosphere. Not rushed at all. When we went there was no music playing so probably would have been fantastic at a different time of day

The bar is beautiful, really stunning. The cocktails lovely, although I will say not as good as some of the other five star hotel bars around the same area. The staff however weren't great for this calibre of bar, not overly friendly or welcoming. Struggled to recommend or describe the cocktails when asked questions, had to usher them over to get another drink. Service was good just not up to the standard for the price of drinks.

We wanted to visit the bar since this is where my mother in law always stays in Paris. We loved the clubby feel to the bar. Although we did not stay at the hotel it is in a wonderful location. Having drinks at the bar was lovely staff was great. We would suggest stopping in if you are in the area and need a drink

My wife and myself come for have a lunch on the lobby and try the desserts of Cedric grolet.
The service staff was not very pleasure...
Don't care of us.. maybe because of our looking.. they was more taking care of peoples was old and in costume....
The "chef de rang " which one was taking care of us was not very pleasure when you asking question..

Desserts was good.. but not crazy.!

On the end fourseasons georgeV are much more better and staff much more friendly!

I love a good cocktail and this place has just jumped to the top of my list for places to drink them! What an amazing bar in a stunning hotel.

Bar 228 is like a throwback to the 30's, all dimly lit, regal and classy. Service, drinks, ambience and clientele are all stunning. Surround yourself with opulent and stylish people looking to drink a first class cocktail in an unbeatable venue. You pay for what you get so don't expect it to be cheap. Just soak it up and relax. Incredible!

Beautiful classic bar in the beautiful classic Le Meurice hotel. Full bar and very friendly service. Had a welcome drink whilst checking in the hotel, but worth much more than that.

There is nothing like the experience you get at a Dorchester Collection hotel. From the moment we walked into Le Meurice we felt so at home as every employee between the front door to the bar was so gracious. The bar is gorgeous, with wood panelled walls and luxurious leather arm chairs. The cocktails were superb ( we gave the bartender free reign and were not disappointed), the food and service were outstanding, and the ambiance delightful. Our visit to Bar 228 was one of the highlights of our fabulous visit to Paris and demonstration once again of all that the Dorchester Collection experience delivers.

We will definitely visit again next time we are in Paris.

Twice we've come here for a drink before dinner and twice been relegated to sitting at the bar -- undeserving of a table despite being well-dressed, season travelers. Seems like a nice enough place, with beautiful decor and piano music, and if we had the opportunity to sit comfortably at a table we might actually enjoy it. Instead we are waiting with bated breath for the Ritz and Crillon hotels to reopen because they actually understand customer service. The Meurice bartender was unable to make a Lemon Drop Martini -- he did not know the recipe and did not care to hear it. The Crillon staff, by contrast, is superb; these people are amateurs.
