There’s something for everyone at this multi-faceted – if overly ambitious – nightclub.
It all sounded great on paper. A new Paris joint with all anyone could possibly desire on a night out: smooth jazz to start, high-quality cocktails, pizza and then a hip-hop set to round off the night. In reality however, Beverly Club – set in Eastern Paris’s major nightlife district around Bastille – is a bit hit-and-miss.
The decor works: a half-bourgeois, half-hippie, seventies-inspired style, wall tapestries perfectly balancing out the ultra-classy bar. We sink into the super-cosy leather seats and enjoy a ‘double-combo’ pizza (Gennaro Nasti’s handiwork), taking in Al Sanders’ high-energy jazz performance (who takes regular breaks in the club’s smoking area - one of the most beautiful in the capital.)
Nothing to shout about drinks-wise however: cocktails are tasty but overloaded with ice cubes and sugar, leaving us with a slightly bitter taste. And we weren’t hugely enamoured by the late-night hip-hop set either, lacking in true R&B 90s/noughties tunes.
All the same, the Beverly Club team are absolutely lovely and the place has great potential – we look forward to seeing it evolve.
