The Experimental Cocktail Club
37 Rue Saint-Sauveur
Cocktails ~ 15 €
The team of this bar is passionate and their range of spirits is renewed very often! Once you have passed through the heavy glass door, you can go directly to the bar, or if you prefer, settle into a more cozy atmosphere in the upstairs lounge. The menu offers a very wide choice and you will find a wide variation around the "Old fashioned" and its rum-based version is present, of course! You can also taste a selection of sharp rums, including part of the "Excellence Rum" collection! It is also possible to snack in case you are feeling a little peckish.
At a stone's throw from Les Halles, in the darkness of street Jean-Jacques Rousseau, in a Roaring Twenties and frenzied atmosphere, you can treat yourself by going through the menu around their signature cocktails, but the bartenders, always energetic, will be happy to prepare a classic Dark'n Stormy or a "high ester" variation. Be curious and take a good look behind the bar because on a small, well-locked shelf, you will see bottles of rare rums, available for high-level tastings.
Isadora Cocktail Bar
60 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001, Paris
Cocktails ~ 13 € -15 €
In the tradition of Speakeasy, this establishment is a real jewel. It nests in the heart of the Galerie Vivienne in the 2nd district, hidden behind the Italian restaurant Daroco. Cross the establishment and at the very back, beyond the heavy velvet curtains, you will discover this pearl in an Art Deco, chic and elegant atmosphere. If you want a classic cocktail, everything is possible, but it would be a shame not to venture out to discover the menu which changes every season with constantly renewed originality! A favorite for the "Krakatoa" mixing the flavors of peanut butter and cane brandy!
Let's end on a festive note! When it was created, it was the first Tiki bar in Paris. In the Pigalle district, rue Frochot, passing the entrance, you will be projected into a tropical atmosphere mixing Hawaiian and West-Indian influences! You will be able to discover an impressive quantity of cocktails around Rum. In the great classics, the "zombie" is a must. To the rhythm of fiery cocktails, the atmosphere continues to heat up and encourages people to reorder. Do not hesitate to talk rum with the staff, they are passionate!
