Named after the hotel’s address (and a VERY pricey hotel at that), despite the seriously fancy interiors, 228 has a friendly atmosphere. Wooden bar stalls and leather chairs bring out a masculine vibe, but it’s softened with crystal decanters and delicate lighting. There has been a bar on this site since 1905, but their Bar Director, William Oliveri, likes to keep things young and fresh.
The menu is outrageous, with over 300 speciality cocktails and 50 or so whiskies to keep you busy. They're always topping the best bar lists in the city, but you'll certainly pay for the privilege, with drinks at €24 a pop. That's Paris, right?
Feeling peckish? Try the “best club sandwich in Paris” according to some Parisians, or their croque-meurice (the deluxe version of a croque-monsieur) if you want to get all French.
