With a Parisian Belle Époque meets New Orleans’ Storyville vibe and named for one of NOLA’s notorious madams, Lulu White couldn’t have picked a better location than this neighborhood full of working girl bars and girlie-cum-cocktail bars.

Made in France!

Le Syndicat is the self-proclaimed “Organization in Defense of French Spirits” and, as such, focuses strictly on French ingredients. The concept of its creators, Sullivan Doh and Romain Le Mouellic, is to stock the bar with bottles of French Gins, Cognacs, Armagnac, and other ingredients hailing from l’Hexagone.

Crack-of-Dawn Rave

My former boss, the fashion designer Rick Owens, turned me onto the idea of waking early to slam an espresso and hit an after-hours club. How better for an dansomane d’un certain age to shake it out without the attendant hangover? A new breed of clubs is going even further to simply start first thing […]

The luxury hotel Peninsula has made Paris its European point of entry, introducing a few new drinking and dining options to the city.

Submarine Speakeasy

I arrived just after UC-61’s opening time 10pm, rang the buzzer at the nondescript entrance and was greeted by bartender Anaïs Teulier.
