Le Taquin

Cocktail Bar in Saint-Michel & Capucins-Victoire

Across from the river, by city gate Porte de la Monnaie, serious cocktails are shaken with style by mixologist Ben at this chic cocktail bar. Steel-grey and baby-blue chairs by Fermob inject a touch of design and signature cocktails ooze creativity: Clair de Lune reinvents the mojito with gin, litchi liqueur and, naturellement, mounds of fresh mint.

Le Taquin serves excellent bistro fare (tasting platters €9–15, mains €13–25) too.
