Le Rosebud
Via Kali Le Rosebud, Paris

A bar where the spirit of 1930s jazz age Paris lives on, the Rosebud was the Montparnasse retreat of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre – and it doesn’t seem to have gained a grey hair since then (unlike existentialist philosophy). The authentic speakeasy vibe includes the drinks – pricy but classic things with whisky and champagne like Sidecars, Alexanders and Singapores, and cocktails mixed by bartenders straight out of ‘Mad Men’ – white suits, elegant moustaches and formal service.

The vibe is low-key, with dim lighting and a discreet clientele – you don’t come here to dress up and make noise. Rather, it’s the sort of placed adored by shy couples and drinkers pondering the meaning of life.
