La Maison du Pastis

Drinks in Marseille

A bit touristy, perhaps, but if you’re keen to sample some of 75 different varieties of Provence’s favourite aperitif – the aniseed-flavoured firewater known as pastis – then this is the place to do it. It also offers the chance to try absinthe, the notorious spirit known as la fée verte (the green fairy) for its supposedly hallucinogenic properties.
