Stashed away in the Saint Germain district is the third Parisian plunge of one of Europe’s elite cocktail teams: The Experimental Cocktail Club, whose impressive credentials recently earned accreditation by the experts at Bartender Magazine as one of the best bars in the world.
Prescription Cocktail Club harks back to a time when the fine art of cocktail mixing could be likened to the job of a pharmacist. They pour all the cocktail classics but it’s their house drinks that really set them apart. Try the BYP (Bright Young People) mix; the Appleton Rum, myrtle berries and on-the-spot squeezed lime juice will keep you coming back.
The refined interior with its dimly lit hue whispers of a Chicago speakeasy. Strike up a conversation with one of the knowledgeable bar tenders who are always willing to share a tip, trick or a tale, then kick back in one of the lavish, laid-back lounge chairs along with the Parisian gentry and sip your way down the menu.
