Born to Marc Bonneton who has played a part in a number of Lyon’s best bars, L’Antiquaire will look like a humble antique shop to the untrained eye.
A sumptuous speakeasy style bar with old Martini posters and vintage bottles awaits you. Find the temporary terrace during summer months or snuggle down in the comfy leather booths during winter.
Classic cocktails are given a twist and drinks are well balanced. When BarChick visited, Marc (an award winner bartender) served us endless Cold Claret Punch (Grand Marnier and Cherry Marnier, gin, lemon and Bordeaux wine) which went down all too well. Be sure to check out signature cocktail The Elixir Basil Smash (gin, Chartreuse, basil and lemon juice) before you stagger home.
