52 Martinis: a blog, a concept, a lifestyle…

Cocktail-stalker, opinion-foister, and things-happening-maker, I seek out superlative cocktails in the city, spill all on the blog and share these spots with readers through regularly organized soirées.

Every week I try a new Paris cocktail bar starting with a martini for a standard of comparison. I usually order a second house specialty and have a regular crew of companions who join in my adventures so we can taste a range of cocktails. And for DIY types, I also cover the city’s cocktail classes and spirits shops.

In addition to researching and writing about Paris cocktails since 2007, I am also the local expert for World’s Best Bars, on the Drinks International jury that votes annually on the world’s 50 best bars, judge local cocktail competitions, am finalising a smartphone application for a guide to Paris cocktail bars and am the founder of the city’s only private popup cocktail club, The Chamber.
