While not quite a club, and not at all a bar caché, Lulu White is perhaps the truest ode to speakeasies of the 1920s. A New Orleans-themed bar named after a famous NOLA call girl and big-time crime dame, there is nothing quite like it in Paris or anywhere else. The atmosphere is convivial, and the bartenders actually care that you get your drink, no matter how packed the bar becomes. Jazz bands play in the evening, and everyone is down to dance. The menu is a sort of history guide, giving a thorough background of Ms. White and her terribly avant-garde consorts. Absinthe is the beverage of choice, and you can order a flight of the green stuff for 20€, or try one of the many absinthe-based cocktails, each named after one of Lulu’s fashionable friends.
