The Rue Frochot in Pigalle isn't short on cocktail bars, with Lipstick coming hard on the heels of Dirty Dick and Le Glass to up the nightlife ante in this part of town. A former hostess bar (now much classier), Lipstick never forgets it's origins in the historic red light district. Leopardskin banquettes, naughty cocktail names, erotic wallpaper and even a dancing pole make sure of that – and the name, which refers to the red lips on the neon sign of the bar's previous incarnation. They take their mixology seriously now (€8-€12), with happy hour stretching until 10pm, and a hip-hop and electro soundtrack which ensures a hip, if comparatively well-behaved, clientele.

Although the decor is very "strip bar" with its leopard print and red velvet chairs, golden mannequins and a stripper pole, I can't help but love this place! Why? Because they often play hip-hop, rap and R&B music (my faves)!! There aren't many places where you can go in Paris (for free) and dance to old-school hip-hop music until 5 in the morning, so I am happy to have discovered Lipstick. Staff are friendly, drinks are good (but cocktails a little expensive after happy hour) and the crowd is laid-back and fun!
