The 100<br />best bars in Paris

This is one of Time Out's 100 best bars in Paris. Click here to see the full list.

“Welcome to Toto’s! A bar where life pisses you off less” is how you are greeted by ‘Les Taulieres’ [the management], Catherine and Nathalie, a lesbian couple who manage this trendy micro-bar on the north face of the Montmartre mound. The regular clientele, straight and gay, are as rock ‘n’ roll as the cocktail menu: dive into the The Femme Fontaine [Juicy Lucy] (vodka-cranberry-strawberry-cointreau), and don’t be afraid to announce the “Raymonde de Saint-Véran turns me on!” (vodka-strawberry-caramel with salted butter and nut liqueur). The Clothilde de la Brigade mondaine  [Vice Squad Clothilde] (rum-ginger-strawberry-lime-mango) is on fire, and the unexpected Vladivostock (vodka-biscuit paste-hazelnut liqueur) is better behaved than her friends. The décor is as crazy as the management: rubber water lily leaves on the ceiling, furry chairs and 50s stools in orange vinyl, comic strip drawings on the walls and flames projected into the room. The star of the show is reserved for the men, in the loos, but we’ll leave that one as a surprise. The DJs set up behind the chest of drawers that serves as a bar every Thursday, and the weekends until 1.30am, mixing mostly electro, but also rock, funk and hip-hop.
