This is probably one of the most in-depth mixology drinks I enjoyed in Europe. It's ranked one of the top 50 bars in the world. They obviously really care about their craft. Interestingly for many locals in Paris it seems more like just a hangout...bar. I noticed plenty of the locals were not ordering from the cocktail list and just having a beer or glass of wine. You have to line-up to enter, but the line moves pretty quick. Getting a seat is difficult and most people are not standing. The front guy tried to get me a seat, but accidentally tried to get me a seat someone was holding for someone who hadn't arrived (yet). They have a nice cocktail lookbook that shows and explains the local producers they work with for each cocktail and the thought process behind it. It was a nice touch. Still - this is an experience I highly recommend having. I really miss great cocktail bars since the pandemic, many of my favorite spots have lost bartenders or shuttered. The bartender was friendly although a little hard to flag down after my first drink. Overall - highly recommend just for the experience.More

You will have to wait though it’s not really full. The doorman has to prove why he is standing there. Once you get it you receive a very friendly welcome. And the music is good. That’s it. Forget about the drinks. They are a rip...off and a joke with ice. See picture below.More

Amazing. You just really want to go here. Entering this bar is already an experience, passing the little red door that the bar is named after. For a bar that in the list of the Best 50 Bars in the world, expectations are of course...high. Took a seat at the bar, where Victor explained us the current menu based on taste. I tried the Menthol without Mint and the Coffee without Bitter, and both cocktails had flavours that were incredibly intriguing. It takes talent to craft such creative cocktails! One of those talents is Rory, who was also behind the bar this evening. Definitely a must visit during your trip. A tasteful experience that you don’t want to miss.More

Attitude is everything in Paris and we all know that some of the best things in life one must wait for, patiently. I was taken here on a date night and has no idea what to expect, as I am someone that has no interest...in the bar scene or night clubs. I was very pleasantly surprised upon being ushered in at the classy and dimly lit lounge setting, with low cushions and velvet couches. Perfect for a post dinner drink, even though my date and I had "mock-tails." The music was well curated and the service was surprisingly friendly and fast! Highly recommended and worth the wait. Always remember, even for the tough Parisians, a little kindness goes a long way.More

This is one of the best bars in France if you like cocktails. Their new menu is very imaginative and playful. The team is great. It’s a mandatory stop in Paris.

My group of friends saw that this bar was recommended on a lot of travel sights and thought that we should check it out. It’s such a cool speakeasy in Paris that everyone should go to if they get the chance. The decor of the...bar is incredible and the menu is so cool. Each drink has unique ingredients and is based on a universal value. The drinks are a little expensive, but for Paris prices they are normal. There was six of us in a group so seating was a little difficult, but the staff was helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend as an after dinner bar.More

The place to be when you’re in Paris. The little red door is an hidden bar in le marais, offers really good drinks (lil expensive but hey, you re in Paris). The menu is fantastic: connects drinks with colors and emotions, and they perfectly fit!!!...Bartenders know what they’re doing and are more than happy to advise you on drinks or telling you the story behind every bottle. Little gem, the guy at the door! He was so nice an fun, with a big welcoming smile on his face. Loved it! Also, they serve (and keep full) a glass of water during your stay, which is nothing but shows how much they care about clients. These guys deserve a visit!More

The concept is very interesting. The menu is limited to a few options and each cocktail is connected to a word/country which the drink must epitomize. The service is fabulous, but unfortunately the place is very small. You must wait outside to get a place...and depending where you’re seated it’s not very comfortable. The prices range from 11 to 15 euros per cocktail, not extremely expensive considering it’s Paris! This place wouldn’t be my to-go cocktail bar but I would visit again with friends for a relaxed evening. Some cocktails are very refined, adult drinks, but some others like the Italian one is overly simplified.More

Impressed from the moment we arrived. There was a queue on this cold, rainy Saturday night, but the doorman was a wonderful host, ensuring everyone had umbrellas and were regularly updated re wait times (well worth the 20 mins queue). We were seated at the...bar, which gave fascinating views of the mixologists at work. The menu is a coffee table style-book, the concept of which changes annually - quite a beautiful work to browse through, giving descriptions of tasting notes rather than a list of ingredients. The cocktails were unusual, delicious, and well presented. Far from being snooty (as one might expect in a trendy local speakeasy), the bar staff were charming and helpful. Great visit - would 100% recommend.More

I don't think so. This setting is not kid friendly. It is a bar for adults.
