Who said the French don’t like a drink as much as the British?
Paris is filled with fun and quirky bars. Drinks are pricey in the capital, so visiting somewhere a bit different will make the hefty bill worth it. Constantly packed, come early or reserve a table for a seat in these establishments.
Here’s a selection of the best:
L’Urgence Bar is a medical themed bar which serves its drinks in tumblers and test tubes. Located in the 6th arrondissement, the novely of drinking a selection of multicoloured shots in a row of test tubes doesn’t wear off. The neon lights and hospital themed décor make it a cool and classy spot. Beware, one drink will set you back 10 euros.
Zero de Conduite is equally popular for its original theme. A child’s heaven with sweets galore and your favourite old school cartoons playing in the background, drinks are served in baby’s bottles. Board games can be played on special nights, as well as daily luck-based games for a chance to win free lollipops and drinks.
Le Latin Corner is a favourite with the ladies. The scantily clad all-male staff serve you provocatively named cocktails in this den of sin. Female customer’s bras hang from the ceiling and the waiters put on a show with a host of entertaining stunts which are sure to embarrass but entertain. Cocktails start at 10 euros.
