We took a friend here for her birthday, as we all love upmarket cocktail bars and it was an awful experience. We had made a reservation and the bar was empty, but the waiters were awfully rude and the service was so slow, even with only four people in the entire place. The drinks were good and the atmosphere with the dark lighting was nice, but just couldn't make up for how uncomfortable we were made to feel.

Nous sommes désolés que vous ayez eu une mauvaise impression après votre soirée ! Le personnel vous a bien accueilli puisqu'il était au courant de votre visite... nous n'avons pas l'habitude de nous précipiter sur les clients pour prendre leurs commandes : nous laissons le temps de découvrir la carte des cocktails qui fait notre succès ! Il faut également un certain temps pour préparer les boissons, c'est aussi indiqué sur notre carte, rien n'est préparé à l'avance ! Le serveur vous a demandé au moment de l'encaissement si tout s'était bien passé, vous lui avez répondu que oui... dommage que vous n'ayez pas formulé vos reproches à ce moment-là !!!

Recommended by the receptionist if our nearby hotel, we went for cocktails. Cocktail menu is refreshingly diverse and original. Well made, well served, nice atmosphere. Prices are high, but hey, you're in Paris.

A little on the pricy side, but a very warm, cozy atmosphere in which to have a coup de champagne or two. Love the dark decor, and very conventiently located 2 min walk from the Madeleine metro.

The "Le Forvm" is a very nice, trendy Bar close to St. Honoré. It has mixed drinks and a very large selection of spirits, the whisky selection was their own menu, with good variety of single malts - including a sampler choice. Be prepared to pay, as the prices are high - good service, and music.

Stopped here for a glass of wine but they are a cocktail lounge so ordered a martini instead. The waiter was not very friendly but the atmosphere is really nice and the drink was good.
