The Women on the Paris Beer Scene

I asked some of the awesome women in the city’s growing craft beer scene to give recommendations for their favorite Paris beer bars. Kate Hyde worked in publishing and fashion before getting into the beer game. She is currently the marketing manager and one of the house brewers at FrogPubs. Kate says that when it […]

It’s Back! Les Bain Douches Nightclub

New York City had Studio 54, and Paris had its own era-defining, decadent club, Les Bains Douches. The location that served as Paris’ first public baths, in 1885, and counted Marcel Proust among its regulars, was converted into a nightclub in 1978. The pool remained from the former bathhouse and over the next two decades […]

Seventh Heaven

The 7th, the roof terrace bar of the 4-star Terrass Hotel in Montmartre, is a bar with a view. But not just any old view: the 7th floor vantage point that lends its name to the bar offers a spectacular view of Paris, with the Tour de Montparnasse, Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, lined up […]

An Alpine-Themed Pop-Up Bar

The ever-morphing hangout Café A has been temporarily transformed into an Alpine ski village complete with evergreens and chairlifts known aspopup cocktail bar paris Café Altitude, where you can warm your cockles at their Żubrówka Biala bar. While there are a few other options, the main focus here is on the four cocktail creations based […]

A Watering Hole Open 7/7

Le Medusa, in the 11th arrondissement, has a few other fun facets in addition to its 7×7, 6pm opening hours. It’s a fun neighborhood watering hole that’s attracting a crowd of young Frenchies favoring the 5.50-euro pints on tap. But it’s not just about cheery beer prices and a light, bright, non-chichi décor. This place […]

Another World in Pigalle

Maison Souquet‘s entrance is flanked by red lights, recalling the days when this building was a house of pleasure rather than a luxury hotel. Just through the discrete door is a world of 1001 Arabian nights decor in the with the lobby lounge. Next you pass into the actual bar, which is designed to feel […]

This is a rundown of just some of the best options, including the dance parties, parade, and fireworks show, as well as some logistical tips on using public transportation, when you can legally drink alcohol on the Champ […]

Post-Work Partying

Living for the weekend? Not so for Paris professionals, when from Monday to Thursday the most popular establishments host miniature clubnights which have taken the city by storm! The “Afterworks” concept is simple: leave the office (with fun colleagues in tow) and head straight over to the club. No need to stop for dinner because […]

Loco for Loca!

Maria Loca has been open for a few years and is located close enough to Bastille to be convenient, but far enough to take it out of the regular tourist fray. It’s small, quirky and casual with a laid-back vibe and friendly staff. The first time I stopped in just after opening, the place was […]

Mixology 101

Last weekend I stopped into Bar le Coq to give their Saturday afternoon cocktail class a test run. The team behind le Coq – Thierry Daniel and Eric Frossard – also run the Cocktail Spirits salon and pulled off the first annual Paris Cocktail Week this year.   So, clearly, there is some cocktail expertise at play here.
