Fortunately a friend told us about this place, because you'd walk right past it. Tiny engraved sign by the door, and windows are curtained, so you'd never see that inside is a hip, dark, groovy little cocktail joint where the music and vibe are just right, and the drinks are taken seriously. We were fortunate to get bar seats so... More

What a cool and nice place. What i would call a no frills place. First from the street you would not even know it exist. Then you get in and so many people there in such a tiny place, though very respectful and relaxed. Great atmosphere, nice staff - surely on the ball delivering so many cocktails at the same... More

On some level this really must be the epitome of Parisian cocktail culture. The bartenders are never shy to surprise with a cocktail that exactly hits your taste in case you didn't find it already on the ever-changing menu. High-level bartending meets warm and laid-back atmoshpere. Some liquid treasures to be found on the top shelf.

Small place, it can be difficult to spot from the sidewalk (small silver placard about at about head-level, on the right side of the door), so just trust the address. Well staffed and the DJ was playing, but not so loud you couldn't talk. There isn't a lot of room to move around, but there was enough seating for us... More

Visiting Paris with a friend and found this place on trip advisor. It had good reviews so naturally we decided to give it a try.... So glad that we did! We were served by the guy who ran the place and he was great - we weren't sure what to pick on the menu so he asked us what we... More

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

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

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.
