The Eiffel Tower Paris at dusk

Feeling a bit peckish in Paris at night? There are plenty of places in the city where night owls can enjoy a nightcap and a nibble. We take a look at some of the best late-night restaurants in Paris.

Where to find late night snacks in Paris

Chic and glamorous

L’Expiremental Cocktail Club in Montorgeuil and The Prescription Cocktail Club in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Pres serve mesmerising mixtures you’re unlikely to find elsewhere.  This place is inspired by New York’s famously experimental cocktails bars. The cosy décor, jazzy and groovy music, friendly bartenders who’ll personalise your cocktail and serve delicious finger food make for great vibes and cool nightcaps.

Panoramic view

Enjoy a top night out at the top of Montmartre. Head to the 7th floor of the Terrass’ Hotel. Here the bar makes you feel as it you’re in an artists’ loft. A great restaurant and exceptional views over twinkling Paris make this a favourite with locals for fab late night eating and drinking. The outdoor terrace area is lively and luxurious and perfect for night owls.

Book nook nightcap

Book lovers will adore La Belle Hortense,  it’s a book shop that serves wine – until 2.00 am! Books, wine, comfy chairs, great ambiance – my kind of night out. Read more about this fab late night book nook.

Refined and elegant

Bar 228 is reminiscent of an English Gentleman’s Club with its listed 18th century panelling, leather armchairs, Chesterfield sofas and original painted frescoes. Enjoy one of the best cocktails in Paris and nibble on a choice of salads, sandwiches and other gourmet snacks in an intimate and cosy atmosphere. I don’t know about you but it makes me smile to know that the great artist  Salvador Dali loved it here too. Find Bar 228 at the iconic Hotel Meurice, opposite the Tuileries Gardens.

All aboard

In the SoPi (South Pigalle) district, seek out legendary rock venue Le Bus Palladium, a former temple to rock once favoured by the likes of Mick Jagger and the Beatles. These days the trendy club with a retro feel, they call themselves a Temple to yéyé (what the French all the music of the Sixties), is free to diners at the excellent first floor restaurant.
