La Fée Verte

Bar in Bastille & Eastern Paris

Absinthe is the speciality of the Green Fairy, a thronging neighbourhood bar with dark-wood furniture, huge mirrors and a zinc bar. It serves over 20 different types of the devilish drink (served traditionally, with slotted spoons and sugar cubes) as well as good food, including house-speciality burgers. Happy hour runs from 5pm to 8pm.
