Have you ever wished to bring Brooklyn’s magic to your city? Paris has New York City’s little treasure called l’Experimental Cocktail Club.
Romée de Goriainoff, Olivier Bon, and Pierre-Charles Cros, the owners, took inspiration from New York’s bar scene and created l’Experimental Cocktail Club, a speakeasy on rue Saint Sauveur in the Second Arrondissement. Located just north of Les Halles, you are going to feel like if you are walking through the medieval Paris.
The Experimental Cocktail Club is a discreet venue but it has no secret entrance, just a black façade. Once you enter, you’ll find the perfect combination of New Yorkspeakeasy – with a piano in the corner – and Parisian charm. Step inside, through the heavy velvet curtain, and you’ll be in a chic-neo-baroque feeling.
This is one of Time Out’s 100 best bars in Paris. L’Experimental Cocktail Club has established a place for itself in the world of fancy drinks. Cocktail fans can choose from a menu of 14 libations made by mixologist Nicolas de Soto. After Experimental Cocktail Club’s mixes, you’ll never go back to the other drinks! The mixologies bars reinvent cocktails with fresh fruit juices and subtle spices.
You can find Tommy’s Margarita Especial made of 100% agave tequila Arette mix with lime juice and organic agave honey, infused with Bourbon vanilla and cloves. Or the Bee’s Kiss, Jamaican rum Appleton VX, cream, organic floral honey and crushed Indonesian pepper. The cocktails are innovative and delicious. Try the Experience Number 1, Hendrick’s gin, lemongrass, lemon juice and fresh basil. So delicious!
L’Experimental Cocktail Club is definitely worth a visit, especially for those who like New York City life, and we do! If you are thinking of going to Paris, we hope you enjoy your visit!
