Mathis, 8th Arr.

3 Rue de Ponthieu
France 75008
Tel: 33 1 53 76 39 55
Metro: Franklin D. Roosevelt's insider take:

A hotel bar that feels more like a courtesan's sitting room, Mathis is a hidden spot where celebrities and well-heeled locals like to rub elbows, or even knees. Discreetly reached through the (less impressive) Hotel Mathis Elysées Matignon, Mathis has two sides: a bar and restaurant to the left at the entrance, and late-night spot to the right. Familiar faces such as famous French actors Isabelle Adjani or Lambert Wilson gravitate to the former—perhaps for its soft banquettes, the gold-dipped mirrors, or the very flattering light of crystal sconces. In the latter, which is done up with red velvet settees and dark walls, the crowd gently grooves to softly pulsating music.

Closed Sundays.
