Cocktail Bar in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Stroll past the many upmarket art galleries on rue Guénégaud to uncover this sharp cocktail club with steel-grey façade and glitzy bar decorated in gold leaf. During Happy Hour (7pm to 9pm) signature cocktails (€12 to €15) drop to €10 – deliciously floral house speciality L'Alchimiste mixes elderflower-flavoured St-Germain liqueur with whisky, lime and homemade hibiscus syrup.

There's a smoking room and DJs rock the cellar space at weekends.
