Amazing. Despite it being a busy bank holiday Saturday we were greeted by Auge who gave us a menu and made us feel welcome. We quickly got a seat at the bar and Auge made us some cocktails that weren’t on the menu, this was a nice touch, she asked what our preference was and she perfectly stuck to the brief / our taste but every cocktail had its own twist / taste. Would 100% recommend. Auge is an amazing mixologist with great skill, care and attention (we loved just watching her make the cocktails), great service from all staff (especially the doorman on 17/04 who was hilarious, great fun!) and we had a great night!

Based on reviews, I stopped in with a few friends for some drinks after an early dinner. we were not disappointed. The experimental cocktail menu was good but so was the classic dirty vodka martini I ordered. The drinks came with a small serve of almonds- a nice touch. The decor is minimal rustic/chic, with exposed brick, timber beams and black velvet drapes. But it felt comfortable rather than pretentious. Low lighting and music that’s almost too loud. Friendly service and situated in a great area for dining and people watching.

Popped in to ECC Paris for a fre cocktails, as I've been to the one in London.
Staff were helpful in securing us a seat.
Cocktails were well priced at 12-15 Euros each.
Bar staff were happy to mix up something which was not on the menu for us

Had read excellent reviews so was excited to visit. Was sat down and they took our order. 20 minutes later no sign of our drinks and the waiter came over to ask for our drink order again.

Multiple groups came in after us and were served infront of us at the bar while we still waited. We signalled to the waiter and he acknowledged us saying "I know" yet 10 minutes later still no drink, while the very same waiter served a group of 5 beside us.

We then walked out. Its the worst bar experience I have ever had, a huge disappointment.

Was really excited to try this bar but according to the door staff men are only allowed in on a Friday or Saturday with a lady each! So these 2 men went somewhere else!!!

Not very experimental if you ask me...

But Jefrys cocktail bar across the road was very welcoming and amazing cocktails.

Every time I go to Paris, I make sure to go to the Experimental Cocktail Club- it is a fun place, with great drinks... which is why I am sad to leave this review. Last week I was visiting Paris and wanted to take my friend here. We trecked all the way there to be greeted by the most demeaning and unprofessional front doorman. He was so rude to us, that we left without going in. Unfortunately, this left such a bad taste in my mouth... to me, customer service is extremely important.

This litte place is tucked away in Le Marais, without a sign, marked only by a single towering bouncer. But behind the heavy curtain is a dimly lit, tiny bar that makes some the best cocktails in town. Most of the black-clad patrons are engaged in hush-hush conversations over cocktails containing obscure ingredients. There's something very clandestine about ECC...it's the kind of place you might come to lay low after a successful jewel heist, or maybe to plot to overthrow the despot of a tropical island nation. Nothing 'experimental' about this place, though -- they know exactly what they are doing...and they'd better when charging ~20 euros/drink. This place is a must for cocktails drinkers and jewel thieves.

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.

Amazing cocktails, like Old Cubans, together with amazing service and great music by live DJ really made this place a very special place during my visit to Paris! Definitely recommending this place, and if you’re lucky to be served by Xx - you can definitely know that you’re in the right place

We stayed about 2 blocks from Experimental in the 2nd arr. Small, hip bar with great cocktails and friendly staff. It can get very crowded, but the service is good. We also enjoyed the music (90's hip-hop, 80's, alternative) and there is a DJ on some nights for a few hours. This side of the 2nd arr has a number of bars and restaurants, as well, so if this isn't your place, move onto the next!
