Behind what looks like an abandoned store covered in posters lies one of the city’s best secret cocktail haunts. It’s all muted lights and mystery in this little speakeasy but the best stuff is going down behind the bar – these guys are masters in the art of magnificent boozing. The aim? To bring back the forgotten French spirits so expect Cognac, Armagnac and brandy in their finest vintage form lined up as tastings or shaken and stirred in to killer cocktails. This is BarChick’s kind of French lesson. It's actually one of the first bars to create cocktails using exclusively French ingredients. Mas oui. The décor does trendy local neighbourhood 10th arrondissiment proud and on the speakers expect French hip hop beats. Stay late.
