Popped into the Left Bank on Thursday evening for a pre dinner cocktail, met by nice staff who served two gorgeous cocktails, great ambience and a great place to chat and chill. Try the Pornstar cocktails, just yum.

Really nice atmosphere and a lovely chilled bar. The place is a little difficult to navigate so you'd want to do it in pairs 😂 would return!
