A Berlinesque cocktail bar with a mini electro club in the basement.
What should I drink? A €6 pint of Grolsch.
The bar-heavy rue Amelot has plenty of options: Pop In, Zero Zero, 4 Elements and Panic Room. The latter is covered in street art by a host of collectives, labels and French artists. The menu includes €6 pints of Grolsch or made-to-mix cocktails (one ingredient €5, two ingredients €9, five ingredients €20). But we loved the Siffredi (Four Roses bourbon, Aperol, lime juice, cane sugar syrup and fresh raspberries €12) and the Katsumi (Russian Standard vodka, Malibu, lime juice, pineapple juice and fresh cucumber €12). A Gang Bang is a litre of cocktails for sharing, which is pretty reasonable for €35. Thankfully, there's a 7-9pm happy hour when cocktails are €6 and pints are €4.50.
The highlight is the mini club in the basement, complete with inbuilt fumoir. Just like Berlin’s Watergate, there’s a lightroom with a custom-made starry sky which beats to the music. If you’re into electro, minimal or techno, keep an eye on their exciting programming.
