Bar Mino in ParisMino (Paris) - © Mino

With its painted wood bar, antique mirrors and suspended plant holders, Mino is the dreamiest gîte d’étape on the Ménilmontant hill. Behind the bar, you’ll find Jennifer Le Nechet (ex-Café Moderne), Ludovic Sals and Auguste Derrien (ex-Trader’s) shaking up the very fresh menu, which you can explore while seated around tables mounted on rails: drink as a group (a beautiful Upside Down with gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon, cucumber syrup, tarragon and sparkling water, €75 for six), or solo, with an improbable Bella Ciao with gin, Martini Bitter and a mixture of xérès, all cooked at a low temperature with tomatoes confit (€12), or a more Latino Taco Rojo, made with tequila, lime, red pepper shrub, grilled corn and Tabasco (€12), and the classic signature drink from Jennifer that won her the world’s best bartender title in 2016! Otherwise, they serve various mocktails depending on what’s fresh at the market, and Southern snacks: kefta skewers (€7), grilled octopus (€8.50)… // A.B.
