Just the smoothest bar in the city. Perfect atmosphere for a cocktail. Wonderful service, interesting drink selections, and happy tastebuds!

At Le Forum, you have "l'embarras du choix." The friend who invited me here suggested that you choose the cocktail you want by looking at the menu according to alcohol. The menu is divided into rum drinks, gin drinks, champagne drinks, etc. No matter what...More

Called in whilst in Paris sampling the city. Found this to be our best cocktail bar, lovely decor, cocktails & service. Probably rate as a classy cocktail bar. Will definitely be back when in Paris again.

While on spiritual things, lets ruminate on spirits, with the most fashionable lables that come in all colours within 25 cocktail recipes. Stirred not shaken, the cocktails are true culinary concoctions, radiating quality, inventiveness and humour. We never feel the need to go elsewhere.

Full of locals with music pumping. Cool dark and gloomy. Intimate small bar. Extensive cocktail list. Mixologists put on a show for us when mixing the drinks with flair and fire. Friendly waiters gave us few ideas and a few house specialties. Fun times. A...More

Two couples sit down face to face at two adjoining tables, just like in a restaurant, ready to pay 20 euro a head for cocktails. Not good enough for manager, who wants to seat everyone around one small table. When we resisted, he refused to...More

We discovered this when looking for a place to have a nice drink in in Paris. Looks unassuming and dark from the front yet still has a Parisian chic vibe. The waiters are smartly dressed, low key and I would not expect speedy service -...More

If you want expertly prepared cocktails with choices that range from perfect classics to award winning signature cocktails by the mixologists behind the bar, this is your place. Friendly and accommodating with a cozy, somewhat boys club environment. This place is a winner.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
