The top hotels offer a wide choice of bars and lounges with vintage interiors, cosy and welcoming furnishings, glamorous settings, an English club atmosphere … They are perfect places to relax, discover the art of mixology, and sample the head bartender’s signature cocktails.

After a 4-year complete makeover, the Ritz has reopened and offers customers two bars: the Ritz Bar Paris with a roaring twenties atmosphere and young mixologist Aurélie Pezet, and the legendary Hemingway Bar that takes its name from one of its most loyal customers. This has always been the haunt of famous international writers. At the helm is the exceptional Colin Peter Field, who has been voted the world’s best barman.

At the Bar Kleber at the Peninsula Paris, wood panelling, ornate decor, huge mirrors and high ceilings set the tone. This classy hotel with a historic past - the Paris Peace Accords were signed here in 1973 putting an end to the war in Vietnam - offers a majestic setting to enjoy cocktails and champagne ... not to mention a selection of Vietnamese wine.
