Le Lavomatic

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

In the contest for the best hidden bar, Le Lavomatic has wiped out the competition. With a modest laundromat for a cover, this speakeasy is only accessible to well-informed night owls, who know to pull open the fake machine (out one out of five!) that acts as the entrance. Low ceilings, multicolored carpeting, detergent-themed stools, ‘80s electro music, the space is perfect for meeting new people. And in the glasses, good, unexpected concoctions: Elyxir des fées (Absolut Elyx vodka, Hendrick’s gin, Absenteroux vermouth, homemade hibiscus syrup and egg whites, €14), Mary’s Pepper (Zubrowka vodka, soy sauce, tomato juice, carrot juice, lemon juice and horseradish, €10), etc. An extra perk: there’s Laborie ham and Bordier butter (€8), broad bean hummus (€8) and Alain Milliat fruit juices (€7). // A.B.
