In the heart of Bellevie, La Commune is the nightlife gem you’ve been searching for. Always bursting with a youthful and trendy crowd, this bar doesn’t disappoint, not in the interior design, and definitely not when it comes to amazing drinks. The famed team behind the famous Le Syndicat decided to create another bar, with a great soundtrack and a shopfront that disguises this hidden gem. Wondering what you should order? Definitely go for the punch, it’s the bar’s specialty.

La Mezcaleria

Another hidden gem of Paris, Mezcal is slowly becoming the drink du jour of the city. Hidden behind the kitchen of Hotel 1K’s Peruvian restaurant, this buzzing bar provides a Mexican atmosphere of trendiness and modernity, youthfulness and brightness. From shots, cocktails and snacks, you get a lot to choose from, and you’ll meet amazing people that will also be the highlight of your trip.


A few strides away from the bustling Rue Oberkampf, on Boulevard du Temple, is the typical Parisian bar, Bisou. You don’t need a menu to drink at this amazing bar, just trust the mixologist behind the marble counter who will prepare you an incredible cocktail with your favorite drink. Design is everywhere, even in the smallest art forms, and Bisou is the personification of that. And you’ll be happy to know that this bar only works 100% organic locally sourced products. Waste products are also recycled as cocktail garnishes. What more could you want?

The luxurious L’Hôtel Particulier Montmartre hides in its chambers the stunning Le Très Particulier bar, a favorite among Parisians. Drinks at this intimate lounge are fresh, handmade and daring. One of the ultimate favorites? The Égoïste, with thyme and lemon-infused gin, homemade chamomile syrup, pineapple, lemon bitters and smoked tea. The exclusive garden is just as stunning as the rest of the hotel and bar.

A trendy Brooklyn-style bar complete with high ceilings, green velvet armchairs, black and white striped marble bar and eighties soundtrack. We could stop there because it already sounds like the perfect bar, but there’s more! The mixologist, Nico de Soto, is a mix of innovation and creativity at its finest, creating a menu of flavors that will leave you completely baffled (and especially delighted!).

Golden Promise

Paris’s first genuine whisky bar with over 1,000 whiskies collected from all over the world, Golden Promise prides itself on being a tasting centre for everything around the drink. If you’re looking for this classic, this is the perfect bar for you. Take notice of the stunning interior design of the bar and you’ll also be learning more about French design. It’s a win-win situation.

Le Perchoir

This enormously popular bar in Menilmontant has a huge rooftop with a 360-degree view of the capital. What more do you need to hear to visit it? It’s also a vast space surrounding a handsome bar, comfortable sofas strewn with cushions, colorful plants and scented herbs planted in pots around the seats or hung from railings. Watching the sun set over the Sacré-Coeur, a cocktail or your favorite drink in your hand as you enjoy the spectacular view of Paris, is something magical that will forever stay in your memory.


A hip cocktail bar that has fast become one of the hottest hangouts in Paris, Gravity has a stylish interior with a ceiling is covered with vertical wave-shaped slats that seem to crash down dramatically behind the massive steel counter. And better yet, it offers a massive menu of creative cocktails to choose from, each one perfectly harmonized and absolutely stunning.
