Je suis allé avec mon ami suite à une visite cette été dans l'après-midi où j'avais pu découvrir de savoureux cocktail.

So I introduce myself in front of the entrance and realize that there are guards at the entrance at night, so I introduce myself to him, then he lets me go home with my friend. While I am about to return to the establishment, another security guard came from behind, with a somewhat aggressive tone, asking me what I am doing, that he never saw me... I answer to him as I passed this summer in the afternoon. The security guard who wanted me to return to the base, told me that in the afternoon there is no surveillance. He tells me that it is closed, that I lie... Being shocked, I remain speechless by such unpoliteness, and he tells me in the wake that this is not going to be possible. Even more shocked, I ask him the reasons for this refusal, but he refuses to give it to me by saying "I have no reason to give you". I insist several times, but I would not have any answers because the more I insist the vigil is violent. I say that I have a slight handicap, maybe it was this one who questioned him because strange at first glance? In any case, this has disappointed me in the Parisian nightlife. I'll never come back to Paris to get out. Finally, I want to support the flavor of the cocktails (tested this summer...), and the kindness of the waiters, his and barmaids. The setting also is really nice reminiscent of bars banned during the period of prohibition in the United States. The music is also nice, even if this judgement is biased because it is my personal tastes after all.

Arrived early and put you at the bar if you can, bartenders are available, very friendly and adapts to your tastes. Delicious cocktails, a cozy place with a beautiful clientele, on a background of lounge music and décor in the Brooklyn style. To do and redo!
Those outstanding underground bars with live DJ. When you want to feel like in prohibition period of US. Small and cozy place with thrilling atmosphere. Good selection of whiskeys and rums. Experienced bartenders.
Nice bar, staff pushy. We ended up paying more drinks that we ordered - the barman gave us tequila shots supposedly free and then made us pay for them. Pas sérieux.
