Luxury Hotel Bar Les Heures Shakes Up Their Cocktail Program

Les Heures bar in the Prince de Galles luxury hotel made its mark on the cocktail scene starting a few years back under the helm of Christopher Gaglione.

Le Bulle du Collectionneur: Champagne in a Parisian Bubble

le Bulle du Collectionneur Hotel du Collectionneur 51 rue de Courcelles 75008 Paris The Bubble is back!  A few years ago, we stopped into the Hilton Hotel Bubble Bar.  Since then, the hotel has gained a star and changed its name, but it has kept the winter tradition of blowing up the courtyard bubble for […]

Bistrologist: Swanky Paris Cocktail Bar

Bistrologist 16, avenue de Friedland 75008 Paris With new and emerging cocktail scenes, it’s sometimes the bartender more than the bar itself that makes a place. At least a few Paris cocktail spots have shown a downhill slide after losing some star bar power (Mama Shelter, l’Hotel, to name a few…) So, it’s interesting to […]

Bar du Bristol: Paris’ Best Cocktails in a Luxury Hotel

Bar du Bristol 112 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré 75008 Paris High end hotel bars are like designer sunglasses.  They give those who can’t splash out on a night at the Ritz or a Chanel suit a taste of the brand at a more palatable price. Even so, a cocktail in a swank Parisian hotel […]

Minipalais at the Grand Palais: Paris Cocktails with a side of Culture

Minipalais avenue Winston Churchill 75008 Paris One of my besties (and Seattle LUPEC founder), Wendy, came to visit recently.

Hilton Arc de Triomphe Bubble Bar 51 rue de Courcelles 75008 Paris For some festive fun, the Hilton Arc de Triomphe has installed a Tattinger sponsored ephemeral champagne bar in their courtyard. From 1 December to 15 January guests can enjoy swank sipping inside a snow globe. In this unseasonably warm winter, faux snow and […]

Paris Cocktails at the Buddha Bar

Buddha Bar   8/12 rue Boissy d’Anglas 75008 Paris Tel: 33 1 53 05 90 00   It’s time to address the big Buddha in the room. For a good part of the past decade the Buddha bar has barely bleeped my radar. I considered it a past its sell-by date hub for expense account-wielding […]

Drugstore Publicis Delivers some Suprisingly Good Paris Cocktails

Drugstore Publicis 133 avenue des Champs-Elysées 75008 Paris   This ain’t your granny’s drugstore. The shiny Drugstore Publicis sits in the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe and serves as a one-stop upscale shop for books, food (both sit down and to go), drinks, cigarettes, movies, magazines and more. I’ve passed this place countless times […]
