An ardent defender of freedom, asylum judge and corrections officer, Augustin Laborde racked up the miles driving from Egypt to Afghanistan – all without the use of a breathalyzer test! So it’s no surprise that his alcohol-free shop with soft green walls and wood and brick shelves is full of intoxication-free joy. There, you’ll come across pregnant women, Parisians wearing djellabas, sweaty joggers and neo-partiers, who have all come to check out the artsy bottles lined up neatly on the walls: a floral IPA from the Brasserie du Marrel; Tanker Sauna Session beer on tap, which you can bring home in growlers; Osco apéritif liquor made with verjus and southern herbs; juniper-heavy gin from JNPR; Pierre Zéro de Chavin Chardonnay and Merlot, which is halal-certified…. Not to mention a selection of fine soft drinks, like Archipel kombucha, Guaven lemonade, Symbiose kéfir or even CBD-infused Chilled sparkling water. You can say goodbye to your hangovers for good! // Renaud Fuego 

The hidden gem: A fiery Gimber with loads of ginger, ideal for gentle mixology experiments and any ailment requiring a shot of fire water (€31.90 for 500 ml).
