Curio Parlor, Paris
Tel: 33 1 44 07 12 47
Concierge.com's insider take:
Inconspicuous on the outsidelook for the stuffed raccoon in the windowthis latter-day speakeasy and cabinet of curiosities is the brainchild of the trio behind the highly successful Experimental Cocktail Club. The decor is British-eclectic but the crowd is truly Parisian; the dance floor is worthy of the name; and the door policy is not nearly as extreme as at some of its rivals. Whiskey lovers, take note: The vaulted cellar is home to the only Nikka Bar this side of Tokyo (from $15 per glass).
Open Mondays through Thursdays 6 pm to 2 am, Fridays and Saturdays 6 pm to 4 am.
