This place is an institution since many years. I went here when i studied in Paris some 10 years ago and revisit whenever I am in town. And it is not for the nostalgic value! Great cocktails by a barman who knows his craft, a menu of more than 120 cocktails costing between 7 and 9 Euros. Folks, you are... More

The place is pretty small but has great atmosphere with dim lights and decorations all over the walls. Friendly service and affordable prices for a very long list of cocktails, the usual classics + lots of original creations.

This place is for you. A cocktail menu like no other I have seen (and I have seen a few !!!). A very welcoming bar with an owner that clearly has a passion for his customers and his drinks. A wonderful ambience just off the beaten track. I will visit this bar every time a return to Paris. Easily 5... More

Very cool trendy place, with a young crowd - until we walked in! Good atmosphere and friendly service, we were there fairly early so no idea how lively it gets later on. Massive cocktail list and what we had was delicious. Can’t fail to put a smile on your face!

Heard about this place from our daughter who was there the year before us and we stopped in for a few drinks! Small little dark bar with friendly staff and great little treats at the bottom of your drinks. Cheers!

Happened to find this place around the corner from where we were staying in Paris (5th Arr.) and I'm so glad we did. An almost endless list of outstanding cocktails, a soundtrack of dub, reggae, soul and doo-wop, a cool yet unpretenious crowd, a huge Happy Hour and the friendliest barstaff in Paris immediately meant my wife and I now...

We hunted this bar down and got there during happy hours last Saturday. We ordered quite a few cocktails but we did not enjoy the taste very much. They tasted medicinal. I like my cocktails to have a bit of spark. We tried Rio Grande, Champagne cocktails and a few more. The place has an extensive menu but do not... More

Over my 10 month stay in Paris, this bar became a firm favourite. 7€ cocktails during happy hour (until 23h during the week, 22h on fridays and saturdays) are cheap for Paris and the menu is vast (although entirely in French so good luck to those who don't speak the language!). Beer and wine are also available but given the... More

First I would like to point out that the pictures posted here have nothing to do with this actual venue. It is a bar which has been own by the same family for a few decades. The current owner Ali, a really friendly guy by the way, told me that most of the cocktails are recipes from his own mother... More

Le Crocodile is a very small, but very fun bar with a VERY extensive cocktail menu. It is entirely in French so, if you don't know a lot of the language, it can be choose at your own risk. The happy hour goes on most nights during the week and the cocktails are €6, which is a bargain! The drinks... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
