Food & Drinks

La Réserve, the Parisian chic

After wandering through the halls of exhibitions, have diner at La Réserve.

La Réserve bar is one of the most intimate addresses in Paris and especially known for its cocktails. You will even find a library with its fireplace inside : just the perfect corner to have a drink in a cozy atmosphere !

Best cocktail bar in the 3rd arrondissement

Among the most beautiful cocktail bars in Paris in 2019, we fell in love with the Herbarium‘s leather-covered stools and fur armchairs facing an excessive wall of vegetation. Drink tailor-made cocktails in this cosy & exclusive atmosphere !
