An Abbesses bar serving cocktails made with homemade nectars and snacks.
What should I order? A Kaliya Berry with vodka, red fruit liqueur, fresh pineapple and prosecco.
Nestled in a quiet Abbesses street, a few steps from the noisy Pigalle area, get comfortable at one of the high tables and admire Persifleur's eye-catching bar. The back room is more of a boudoir with its low armchairs, soft lighting, petrol blue walls and, behind the back window, a carefully lit patio. The atmosphere is cosy and the menu lists its "homemade nectars", a dozen cocktails (€8-13) with rum, vodka, whiskey or mezcal. There are no classics here, only creations. The Kaliya Berry with vodka, red fruit liqueur, fresh pineapple and prosecco is apparently a bestseller and we can see why. The Mr Rosefield looks like a milkshake, with rum, blueberry mousse and...peanut butter. Not exactly our cup of tea, but the menu was designed by a Brit after all. Wines and spirits are more expensive (starting from €9 a glass), as are the sparsely filled cheese and charcuterie plates (around €14). That being said, we’ll certainly be making a return visit.
