From walking the beautiful streets to eating some of the best food in the world, you’ll definitely want to imbibe on something good. Luckily, if you want to drink in Paris, you’ll be just fine.
Probably my favorite place to drink in Paris. This intimate, unpretentious wine bar has everything you want from Paris. It’s right on the corner of quaint streets in the 3rd Arrondissement, if I were to imagine the perfect wine bar, Le Barav has it. It’s actually a bottle shop as well, so pick out your wine by the bottle and enjoy the ambiance.
Well, I wanted to throw a curveball at you. This brewery is perched on canal St. Martin, one of the trendiest spots in Paris. I know you probably weren’t thinking of beer in this city, but if you’re lucky enough to have a nice day, grab a few brews, a planche, and enjoy the view.
Now we enter the cocktail territory, Little Red Door is a speakeasy-style bar that is worth a shot. This place is kind of tough to spot, so don’t give up and if you don’t think it looks right, you’re probably right on track. No hints here 😉
On the other end of the spectrum, Le Syndicat is almost impossible to miss. This bar is about as trendy as they come, but the cocktails are inventive and worth it.
Probably the most low-key wine bar you’ll ever find. If I lived in Paris, this is one of those places where I would come after work to enjoy a glass of wine with friends.
Actually a Mexican restaurant, Candelaria may seem random. You won’t be blown away by the food, but they do have one of the most extensive and inventive cocktail programs I’ve seen in Paris, which gives it a spot on my list.
Bougie cocktails and “elevated pub grub”, enjoy.
Frenchie – Bar á Vin
So I came to Frenchie – Bar á Vin because it seemed a little less of a commitment than the popular Frenchie restaurant. A good wine selection and atmosphere, though likely to be infinitely more crowded than Le Barav.
De Saison is similar to Le Baron Rouge, and honestly, I would be in heaven at either of these places. Come, drink wine, eat, leave.
Le Porte-Pot just feels like it came right out of the 60s. The ambiance is as cozy as it comes, a perfect place to enjoy good company. The food here is also incredible, so if you’re thirsty and peckish, this should be high on the list.
I could be mistaken, but I think this was one of the early entrants to the new-age cocktail scene in Paris. Great cocktails and an old-timey, speakeasy vibe.
Fancy a night out at the Moulin Rouge? Well, for pre-theater cocktails look no further than Lulu White Drinking Club.
