This is a cool spot hidden on a quiet side street that had both locals and visitors (kiwis & Americans). The bar is clearly the realization of someone's passion--decorated with hard rock icons and offering 30+ absinthe choices. There is a coffin in the corner,...More

We came here to try absinthe and we had the full experience! There are creepy paintings on the wall and a coffin and a skeleton for decor. The people working there fit the part as well. We asked for suggestions on absinthe and they didn't...More

Really cool little bar, with numerous beers and spirits but the speciality was Absinthe. Cool and quirky, a good place to start a bar crawl!

Located not very far from the city centre (and close to Pere-Lachaise cemetary, which might be useful information for someone), this bar with an amazing interior offers a variety of absinth (over 50 different kinds!) and lots of good music, such as hardcore, heavy metal...More

While in Paris, we were looking for a place that served absinthe. Luckily, this bar was around the corner from where we ate dinner. This was the bar where Anthony Bourdain had absinthe on No Reservations. This bar is where the alternative crowd goes (every...More

Ok, it'a bit off the beaten track and despite being featured on a certain travel program it's still not a tourist mecca. And if your a group of middle aged Dutch and Americans it can seem a bit intimidating for a moment but go on...More
