Where to have a drink in Paris? (France)

Paris is full of bars, restaurants, trendy places. To have a drink, you have a lot of choice. But our favorite places remain… hotels (preferably luxury ones).

Don’t shout scandal right away! The bars of luxury hotels can finally prove to be more economical than your local bar! And if you want to play it economical, take an espresso, a Coke or a tea whose note rarely exceeds 10€.

In addition, there are only advantages:

  • There aren’t many people
  • So you can stay there as long as you want
  • The service is impeccable
  • The chairs are comfortable, it’s clean and comfortable
  • Your drink is always served with a little snack (or a mini madeleine for your tea)
  • You can take the opportunity to visit the hotel (especially those you can never pay for just one night)
  • You may come across personalities 😀

However, a few rules apply:

  • It is asked beforehand if the bar is reserved only for hotel guests
  • Dresscode : You have to dress elegantly, but not to get dressed up either. A casual chic look is recommended. Otherwise, dress like a lost tourist in Paris, that’s okay too: Bermuda/Shorts, tennis shoes, a huge Canon reflex hanging around your neck..
  • Don’t talk too loud: You will be the only customers of the bar, talking too loud won’t match the atmosphere. So I would recommend for a one-to-one meeting
