Undoubtedly one of the highlights of Paris's new trendy bar scene is Les Passerelles, the restaurant and bar on the ground floor of the Hotel Parister in the 9th arrondissement. By day the space is open for breakfast and lunch. Come night, it's a sexy whiskey and cocktail bar serving tapas-style bites alongside their divinely created and curated offerings.
With over 100 French whiskeys, Les Passerelles is the largest French whiskey bar in Paris. The bartenders are knowledgeable (and kind) enough to guide even a novice whiskey drinker in the right direction. If you ask nicely they’ll craft you a custom cocktail based on your tastes. Take your drink at the bar, on the dark green banquette, or outside to the hotel's private garden. On the weekends, trendy Parisians flock to Les Passerelles for brunch and late-night drinks.
