There's no shortage of legendary, luxe hotel bars in Paris: Hemingway, Plaza Athenee and L'Hôtel to name a few, but the new bar at the Park Hyatt Vendôme stands out as their slicker, younger brother. With a leather bar and what has to be the best looking team of bartenders ever assembled, BarChick skips the neighbouring tourist-filled, overpriced Ritz and heads here instead for doting service and immaculate drinks.
Order a classic Blue Blazer at the bar and prepare to be dazzled, or work through their impressive whisky collection and warm up by a fireplace in the lounge next door. If the weather is shining, head to their terrace in the afternoon and soak up some rays.
