Best cocktail bars in Paris

hi everyone,

I've been doing some updating of tags on my blog to include arrondissemenst on the bar entries - and in doing so, find I'm really lacking in cocktail bars in certain areas. Perhaps these areas really are cocktail-dead zones, but anyone have suggestions for places for drinks in any of the following areas the 7th, 9th or 19th?

Of course I'm always interested in good cocktail bars anywhere, but it's nice to have at least some possibilities in all of the arrondissements.

  1. Prescription Cocktail Club at 23 Rue Mazarine in the 6eme makes some nice cocktails. The Florida Taragon is my favorite.

      yes, that's actually my favorite cocktail bar of the moment. it's not on my blog funnily enough, but I go there quite often. good suggestion!

        Is it still necessary to be on a list or have a connection in order to get in to Prescription? I'm interested but don't want to waste my time...

          I had cocktails there, without any connection. I made a reservation, though.

            sorry about the slow reply time. No, anyone can go, but reservations are recommended on busy nights.

      2. On a nice day, the terrasse at L'Esplanade, rue Fabert, is a great place for coctails and people watching, even if it is owned by Costes.
