Novotel: Rooftop Bar That’s Never Too Crowded

Lounge Bar at l’Hôtel Novotel Montparnasse 257 Rue de Vaugirard 75015 Paris I want to have it all. You know the saying “You can have a great job, relationship and apartment.  Just not all at the same time?” So it is with bars. You can find good locations, good drinks and good prices.  But, not always […]

La Closerie des Lilas: Historic Paris Piano Bar Plus Cocktails

La Closerie des Lilas 171 Boulevard du Montparnasse 75006 Paris A friend, who is a painter, once told me that he paints every single day whether or not he is inspired.  This keeps his skills sharp so he can do something exceptional with the inspiration when it does come. I think that’s sound policy, so […]

Art Deco Cocktail Adventures: L’Etage at Les Jalles – CLOSED

L’Etage 14 Rue des Capucines 75002 Paris 01 42 61 66 71 I don’t really spend all of my time drinking and eating.  I also spend a lot of time reading, researching, writing and talking about drinking and eating.  So, naturally, I hear a lot of buzz. When a friend recently called for a restaurant […]

Dandy Cocktail Adventures: the Art Room (CLOSED)

The Art Room 13 rue Tiquetonne 75002 Paris The newly opened Art Room is a fashion dandy’s dream with three floors of carefully calculated frivolity. The main floor is a glossy black cube with films projected on the walls, reproduction chairs and super-stylish chandeliers.  From there, you can take a seat upstairs in the miniscule […]

Gentlemen’s Club Cocktail Adventures: Jefrey’s

Jefrey’s 14, Rue St Sauveur 75002 Paris Even though Jefrey’s was freshly opened when I stopped in, I’ve been sitting on the post for awhile because I wasn’t immediately inspired. Since I’ve written about it for other sites it’s time to get inspired to give the full rundown with the nit-picking reign that only having […]

Le Parc Trocadero Hotel: Gin Cocktail Bar in Paris

Renai ssance Paris Le Parc Trocad ero Hotel Gin Bar 55-57 Avenue Raymond Poincare 75016 France   When I began my martini-fueled adventures there was no serious cocktail culture to speak of in Paris. Having long given up hope of finding a decent mixed drink, I subsisted on French wine when out and mixing my […]

Martini Bar at Opera Garnier

Opera Garnier Martini Bar Place Jacques Rouche 75009 Paris With its impressive exterior, grand staircase and Chagall-ceilinged auditorium, Opera Garnier has always had plenty to offer beyond just the performances. And, now the previously underutilized backside of one of Paris’ most beautiful buildings also boasts a Martini bar and immense restaurant. The Martini sponsored bar […]

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 […]

Salacious-glam Cocktail Adventures: le 29 – CLOSED

le 29 29 rue Vineuse Paris 75016 06 18 40 89 93 I’ve said it before, but I have a fascination with the seedier side of Paris. I live near Pigalle, so I get daily doses of kinky sex shops, working ladies in action and the famous museum of erotica. So when i heard that […]

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 […]
