Tucked away in a quiet side street of the Bonne Nouvelle in Paris is a little bar with a growing reputation for it’s mixed drinks. The owners of the Experimental Coctktail Club have opened bars in London and New York, but it was nice to have the opportunity to check out the original Club in Paris. Smart and with a gentle Speakeasy feel (hard to spot, curtained entrance, mustachioed bartenders), it’s a welcoming bar with an easy going feel. The menu is quite short but as the name of the bar suggests the drinks are certainly not conventional. We sampled a number of house creations and some wonderful twists on classic drinks. All were well made.
Le Forum (4 boulevard malesherbes, 75008) also has a great reputation as a top Paris drinking spot, but I’ll have to check it out next time…
