Bars and pubs, Cocktail bars 2nd arrondissement
5 out of 5 stars

Mindblowing cocktails in a former Jean-Paul Gaultier boutique.

What should I drink? A Kota Ternate.

Hidden behind the temple to pizza that is Daroco is Danico, a trendy Brooklyn-style bar complete with high ceilings, green velvet armchairs, black and white striped marble bar and eighties soundtrack.

The mixology team, led by Nico de Soto (formerly of Experimental Club, but with training at New York’s Mace too), pushes the boundaries of cocktails as we know them. From matcha to marshmallow to bacon, this menu will leave you totally baffled – and delighted.

Each cocktail we try packs a serious assault on the taste buds: a super blend of mezcal, celery seed and dry sherry with a strong barbecue flavour, then another with cognac, hazelnut butter, hay, chamomile and sparkling champagne completely bowls us over. Not for the faint-hearted drinker.
