Le Forum

Bar Le Forum in ParisLe Forum (Paris) - © Le Forum

Driven out of its historic location at La Madeleine by a Qatari property operation, the mythic Forum, inaugurated in 1931, was forced to emigrate in 2016 roughly 23 minutes by foot away according to Google Maps, to the 2nd arrondissement. And in its new space, everything reminds you of its glorious past: dark wooden panels, a shiny Wurlitzer jukebox, leather armchairs, photos of the 1930s, waiters in vests and ties and a respectable cocktail menu with thirty choices, including the pimped out classics like the Porn Star Martini (Stolichnava Vanil vodka, passion fruit liqueur and coulis, Bols vanilla liqueur, served with a shot of Deutz Champagne for €16) and house creations like the Rose de Varsovie (Wyborowa vodka, Heering liqueur, Cointreau, Angostura bitters for €14). There’s finger food (a plate of accras for €8) and virgin cocktails for €8 as well. // A.B.
