The bar at Bar Hemingway, Ritz Hotel Paris

You’re totally spoiled for choice if you’re in the mood for a stylish setting to sip that perfect sundowner in Paris. Will it be a Mimosa (classic Champagne and orange juice) or a French 75 (gin, brandy and Champagne)? Whatever your fancy we’ve got you covered.

Sip into something more comfortable and check out our contenders for the best cocktail bars in Paris!

Chic and uber luxurious

The Bar Hemingway at the Ritz is very, well… ritzy! The chief barman Colin Field is famous the world over for his fabulous cocktails (he was once voted “Best Barman in the world”). Yes, it’s pricey but you’re in Paris and why not! Open from 18h to 02h (last entry at 01h), you don’t need to reserve and its open to the public. Under the beady eyes of Ernest Hemingway who loved it here (and whose portrait adorns the wall), you’ll enjoy a little bit of history in luxury and a most delicious cocktail.

Chic and Relaxing

Le Kult bar adjoins the Hotel Saint in swanky Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It’s cosy and initmate and the interior has a 1930’s feel to it. Cocktails are not cheap (they’re not cheap generally in Paris) but they are very enticing and you can’t help but relax in this friendly bar.

Chic and Fabulous

L’Hotel, the smallest 5 star hotel in Paris, was created in 1828. It’s attracted numerous fans including Oscar Wilde, Salvador Dali, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jim Morrison. The fabulously flamboyant Le Bar attracts the arty set and celebrities and will tempt you to while away the night with one of their signature, delectable cocktails. I can recommend the So Wilde, named in honour of Oscar Wilde, who spent his last years here and who would surely have loved the Champagne based nectar!

Chic and Cool

The Ice Kube Bar at the Kube Hotel in the Chapelle brings the chill of the North Pole to the heart of Paris with its bar carved from ice. The temperature (-18° C) is polar in this urban igloo so take a coat to this bar, but the cocktails certainly warm you up. The bar staff will be happy to loan you mittens and hats!

Chic and charming

The Hotel Marignan bar is arty and fun. Enjoy a classic cocktail or something totally different, spicy, fresh and intoxicating mixes definitely charm in this friendly bar.
