After several messages, I moved, to finally apologize flatly by telling us that several meatballs were committed by their Manager and the icing on the cake... they have forwarded our contact information to the person who has been robbed, which is legally forbidden. Unable to see this famous video, even the Director of the establishment did not even watched it. His answer: "I'm only here to welcome customers"... You told me Director ♂ ️ ♂ ️ we do not have the same definition of the job description. Conclusion: we are filing a defamation complaint. We cannot let this incident happen that can harm a reputation even when it is innocent!!!!!! So you want a good cocktail bar, try others like the hotel Bachaumont or hotel Souquet but frankly do not put a foot in this establishment.
This place is the proof that you don't have to wait 1h for mixology. Beautiful, creative and delicious cocktails served without pretention in a cozy and elegant environment. Beautiful drinks, beautiful setting and beautiful people.
Hidden cocktail bar with great cocktail menu. Very nice staff also !
