Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

A SoPi cocktail bar serving up great food and a perfect soundtrack until late.

What should I drink? A Psilo with tequila, mezcal, salt and lemon, garnished with wild coriander (€13).

Look through the facade of greenery and you’ll see a discreet sign saying ‘L’Entree des Artistes’. Inside is an art deco duplex that’s somewhere between a loft and a jazz club. The clientele is chic, but we can’t help noticing the bartender’s grimace when we order. It’s not a great start.

Cocktails are all mixed with homemade syrups and infusions, bursting onto the tongue like the well-balanced Psilo, with tequila, mezcal, salt and lime, garnished with wild coriander (€13). The wines are well chosen, all from small producers and mostly natural. The food offering is a surprise: high-quality dishes, served until midnight, like smoked beetroots with ricotta, anchovies and Piedmont hazelnuts (€10) or exceptional pink-hued lamb tagine with vegetables and ras-el-hanout (€18). The music also deserves a nod: Boogymann, Gil Scott-Heron, James Brown. On weekends, you can dance to American LPs until almost sunrise as the bar stays open until 5am.
