Shortlist: best cocktail bars in Paris from Tiki to Speakeasy

The best Bar for Explorers

Little Red Door is a bar located in the renowned Marais district in central Paris. Since 2012, it has become a synonym of excellence for the city’s cocktail bars.

Cozy decor, under a twilight. The cocktail menu is conceptual, with exclusive creations that bet on the palate. In an interview with Rory Shepherd, founder and bartender of the bar, he explained a little about it.

When we make a cocktail, we don’t follow the doses prescribed by traditional recipes. We don’t use any pre-established structure: we make cocktails according to the taste and flavors of the palate. As a result, the doses vary from the original recipe. That’s what makes us more creative.”
