The library-paneled and pouffy-chaired Hemingway is tucked away at the back of the Ritz and widely considered the best place to get a cocktail in Paris. Its top barman, Colin Field, is a world-class perfecter of ambrosias such as the Picasso Martini (the vermouth comes frozen in a cube) and the French 75 (Champagne, gin, sugar, and lemon juice). Field manages his cocktails and his fashionable clientele, from supermodels to lesser divinities, with equal finesse, and occasional introductions. Across the hall, the gentleman's club–inspired Ritz Bar hops on Thursday nights starting at 10 pm, when beautiful and exotic species alight on red velvet sofas before migrating to the dance floor downstairs. If you find the venue has been privatized for the evening, you can always join Field at the Hemingway.

Hemingway Bar open daily 10:30 am to 2 am.
