Trendy bars from The Halles to the Concorde in Paris

Classic or trendy: the historic centre of Paris has bars to suit everyone’s taste

Experimental Cocktail Club, Paris

Right in the historic heart of Paris, several bars offer fine views of famous monuments, as does the famous Café Marly at the Louvre.

At Café Beaubourg, opposite the Centre George Pompidou, it is not unusual to come across a celebrity as you sit having a drink. Cafe bars in the district are very popular with personalities from the media, the cinema and music, who drop in for a drink and organize their meetings here.

Le Costes, opened in 1984 and historically decorated by Philippe Starck, is a trendy haunt. Both a bar and a restaurant, Le Costes combines inventive world cooking with trendiness.

For speakeasy cocktail bars, L'Expérimental Cocktail Club, rue Saint-Sauveur, sports a very British atmosphere and talented bartenders concoct innovative drinks. At the weekend, this cocktail club becomes a dance club with DJ sets.
