Where can you find both Nike La Requin sneakers and the work of Art Nouveau Belgian architect Victor Horta? At this cocktail den named Bar Nouveau, decked out in wooden arabesques, floral prints and spotted mirrors, which set up shop in the Marais neighborhood’s former Quiet Man bar. We owe this transformation to the crème de la crème of the mixology world: Remy Savage leading the pack, alongside twins Sara and Hadrien Moudoulaud (all three of whom used to work at Little Red Door and Le Syndicat in Paris, plus Artesian in London) and Marc Puzzuoli (ex-Swift in London), who decided to give Paris a history lesson in the art of drinking. There’s plenty of good things to sip on either the ground floor or in the underground space, where the refined glassware, chanterelle lights and nostalgic playlist have given way to a post-techno ambiance (raw materials, muted lighting, and a more concise menu). Want a closer look? Six cocktails upstairs, six downstairs, put together from an impressive collection of vintage bottles: a timeless Fine à l’eau (Cognac, verjus, sugar – €9), an aromatic but lively Sarbacane (Thai rice awamori, crème de banane, Discarded vodka and a dash of salt – €13) or a voluptuous Ramos (vodka, St-Germain, vanilla yogurt, cream, peaty whisky and a dash of Perrier – €13). // Jackie Pépite
