Lovely cocktail bar, nice semi concealed entrance, the drinks are expensive but you get what you pay for, it is Paris after all. We went late on a Saturday, the atmosphere was awesome and despite being busy the bartender took time to discuss the menu and gave us some solid recommendations for local bars. Would definitely recommend for a cocktail... More

The place is amazing! Cocktails are exquisite and the interior is really cool. One of my favorite bars I have ever visited. I loved everything about it.

I was hopeful for a good cocktail experience, but what I got was not even close — neither to the cocktails nor a good experience. At 11pm, I walked to the door and asked if the bar was still open, which of course, it was. However, the man at the door just stared me down with judgemental eyes, before doing... More

If you can find this little gem of a cocktail bar it is definitely worth a visit! We tracked it through trip advisor and were not disappointed. The cocktails are around €13-15 but the quality far outweighs the price. The staff were extremely friendly and even offered to make us cocktails that were not on the menu. You will almost... More

We were craving some high quality cocktails and Experimental Cocktail Club delivered. It has a very cool, speakeasy vibe with no signage and a large man of few words out front, but once he lets you inside, it's a lively lounge feel with a DJ playing chill old-school hip hop. The bartenders are the real deal, very professional and the... More

Let them design one to suit you and you won't be disappointed! It takes a bit of finding but don't be put off by the exterior it is well worth opening the door into the dark interior!

We stopped in for a couple of pre-dinner cocktails. Cool decor, warm and friendly service, cocktails imaginative and delish! We were still suffering from the previous nights festivities and when mentioned, a hangover cure arrived (ginger beer, lime juice and bitters!) We also go a brilliant recommendation on where to go for dinner afterwards. The only slight negative - sort... More

We've been to a few 'secret' bars and speak easies in European cities and whilst I would say this one isn't 'secret' in my opinion and doesn't have the full speak easy vibe, it's still a nice hidden spot for a good cocktail. Staff very friendly and they have an interesting menu. I've read a lot about the bouncers -... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
