Le Reservoir restaurant, bar and club in Paris is found in the city's nightlife quarter between Nation and Bastille and find it you should. This exciting place is an energetic, warm and welcoming place to dine well, dance and hear some pretty fabulous music ranging from jazz and reggae to rock and house. The decor is not cold minimalism, but neo-baroque with wrought iron lighting, gilt furniture, mirrors and candles everywhere and hung with an excellent standard of original art. The menu -- philosophy 'fresh produce, respectful cuisine, passion, love and hard work -- features a generous, global mix of, say, lobster in chartreuse with pear, rice and passion fruit vinaigrette, mountain hay-cooked canon of lamb with juniper gravy and dried fruit pancake. The ambience is superb. Service goes on until 5 am at weekends and the Sunday brunch is famous among clubbers as the best way to recharge for the week ahead.
