Late night nibbles

Feeling a bit peckish? There are plenty of places in Paris (External link) to enjoy a nightcap and a nibble...

Chic and glamorous

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

Panoramic view

Enjoy a top night out at the top of Montmartre. Head to the 7th floor of the Terrass'' Hotel (External link) for the bar which feels like an artists’ loft and restaurant where the views over Paris are exceptional. The outdoor terrace area is lively and luxurious and perfect for night owls.

Refined and elegant

Bar 228 (External link) 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 knowing that Salvador Dali loved it too. Find it at the iconic Hotel Meurice (External link) opposite the Tuileries Gardens.

All aboard

In the SoPi (South Pigalle) district, seek out legendary rock venue Le Bus Palladium (External link), a former temple to rock once graced by the likes of Mick Jagger and the Beatles. These days the trendy club with a retro feel is free to diners at the excellent first floor restaurant.
