DÉVIANT

39 R. des Petites Écuries, 75010 Paris, France
OPENING HOURS
  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 6:30 PM – 2:00 AM
  • Wednesday: 6:30 PM – 2:00 AM

  • Sunday: Closed

Déviant might just be our favourite new wine bar in Paris. From the same team as Vivant, which is just a couple of doors down, Déviant is about as fun as a wine bar can be. It opens out right on to the street (there’s heaters for when it’s cold), it’s standing room only, and there’s music (albeit questionable music) pumping out the speakers. Add to this a brilliant selection of natural wines, friendly staff, and a selection of banging little small plates cooked from the small open kitchen and you’ve got the whole package. You can stop in for a quick wine or bed in for the night. Can someone do this in London please!

  • Sunday: 12:30 – 1:30 PM

One of the big draws of Clown Bar was the chef Sota Atsumi, who was cooking some incredible dishes when he was there. He left Clown Bar in 2018 and while it’s still a great place to visit, Paris foodies have been flocking to the chef’s solo venture, Maison. It’s one of the hottest places in Paris at the moment and it’s easy to see why. Don’t worry if you can’t score a reservation – we managed to score a walk in at the chef’s counter by turning up just before 2pm on a mid week lunchtime. Lunchtime is a great time to visit as you’ll also be able to take advantage of the €55 lunch menu which is a relative bargain for the level of cooking. Every dish is a knockout, from the early snacks like the beetroot tart to the fresh raw tuna, and the hake with foie gras. A truly special spot that should definitely be high on your hit list.

BILLILI

136 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75010 Paris, France

  • Saturday: 12:00 – 3:00 PM, 6:30 – 10:30 PM
  • Sunday: Closed

Les Arlots is one of our favourite Paris restaurants and the same team have opened a new wine bar called Billili right next door. It’s a popular spot with no reservations so make sure you get there early if you want to stand a chance of getting in. There’s a few rickety tables around the room which quickly fill up, before the rest of the room get’s packed with people cramming up to the bar. It’s a buzzing spot, with brilliant wines that start at €6 a glass. Then there’s the short menu of French wine bar classics – think cheese, charcuterie, pate en croute, and terrine. We love Billili and as it’s right next to the Gare du Nord it’s the perfect place to spend your last couple of hours in Paris if you’re getting a late Eurostar home.

LA BUVETTE

  • Saturday: 5:00 – 10:00 PM
  • Sunday: 5:00 – 10:00 PM

La Buvette is a teeny tiny one bar, but one we always return to when we’re in Paris. There are around four tables, plus a bit of standing room at the little zinc topped bar, and the interiors are pleasingly ramshackle. It’s got a brilliant vibe, a fantastic selection of natural wines that you can try for 6 or 7 euros a glass, and a short but punchy food menu. Check out the Andouille smoked sausage made in house and the white beans alongside a glass of crisp white wine.

  • Saturday: 7:30 – 11:00 PM
  • Sunday: 7:30 – 11:00 PM

From the outside, Cheval D’or (Golden Horse) looks like an average Chinese takeaway, with the bright lit signage of its previous occupant left unchanged. Inside however, it’s all chic modern Paris, a buzzing dining room with bare concrete walls, kitchen counter seats and plain wooden tables dotted around the room. It’s one of Paris’ hottest new restaurants, bringing together the all-star team of Taku Sekine (Dersou) and Florent Ciccoli (Jones, Café du Coin). The food can loosely be described as modern Asian, with a few French influences thrown in for good measure. The pork noodles and pork rice are must orders, as well as the deep fried cinnamon bao buns for dessert. Counter seats are saved for walk-ins so if you don’t have a reservation, get there early to snag one of these!

Early June is an uber-cool wine bar in Paris’ 10th arrondissement that’s extremely popular – you may have a hard time nabbing a table, but it’ll be worth it if you do. They’re walk-in only unless you’re in a group of four or more, in which case you can have a look at the site for booking availability. Alongside their wine offering, which features plenty of great natural options, Early June hosts a range of travelling chefs who take care of the food menu.

But the best thing about this place is the design – every nook and cranny has been perfectly curated. There’s a 300 year old spiral staircase, original iron columns, tiles from the 18th Century and exposed timber beams in some of the 4th-floor bedrooms. Our fave spot right now? That’ll be Jacques bar with floral wallpaper, tasselled lamps, fluted sofas and palms…

It’s open on Sundays too.

Mama Shelter East is a fab choice if you’re after a hotel that’s affordable and a bit eccentric. Located in the very cool 20th arrondissement, MSE is sandwiched between the famous Père Lachaise Cemetery (burial place of Édith Piaf and Frédéric Chopin) and artists’ studios. If you don’t want to travel too far out of your room for a drink and bite to eat, there’s a rooftop bar and in-house restaurant and pizzeria. Rooms are simple but stylish – an ideal spot to crash after a day of exploring the city, just remember to bring your own toiletries as they aren’t provided here.

It’s classic French and La Bistrot Paul Bert have plenty of meat at this local favourite, which brings in the visiting foodie lovers by the bucket load. Why? because it’s great, authentic hearty food. It feels very much like it has been around for donkey years, but in fact opened in 2000. Steak and Chips is a must and if you don’t see a table free, they might be able to just pull one out of thin air.

  • Sunday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Born out of the idea to offer takeaway food on the narrow street of Rue du Nil where their original restaurant ‘Frenchie’ sits, right next to their wine bar, Frenchie To Go is exactly what it says, except…you CAN dine in. Meat comes from Tim Wilson aka “Ginger Pig” in Yorkshire and this cool modern cafe is all about the pulled pork ‘everything is super good in this pig’ sarnie. The chips are also incredible, the coffee awesome and you can find a range a craft beers from Japan. Quirky!

Candelaria is in the top 50 bars in the world. Its theme is based around tequila and mezcal and a speakeasy in every sense.

Little Red Door is one of the main places to go for top notch cocktails. A guy called Remy Savage is a bit of a legend and an unreal bartender. The space isn’t huge but you can still sit in a big plush high seat at the end of the bar if the tables are full. At the time of writing there was no menu, but a book full of colourful illustration from which you were encouraged to pick one that stood out to you in whatever way you found appealing. Great cocktails and quirky atoms.

Open from June to October, LaPlage Glazart is a summer pop-up from the guys at Glazart nightclub, and like the name suggests, they turn the outdoor space into a beach. It’s got tons of actual sand, deckchairs, food stalls, and bars, giving it plenty of festival vibes. The stage plays host to gigs of all kinds but electronic music tends to rule the roost on weekends, with parties going into the early hours. Located near La Villette, almost at the top of the 19th, it’s not the handiest place to get to, but there aren’t many places you can throw shapes on the sand, in the open air, in the middle of the night.

Smack bang in the middle of town, 59 Rivoli is a former artist’s squat turned studio space and free public gallery.

You get to see and talk to the artists as they work, and as the residents change every three to six months, there’s always something new to discover.

Parisian addresses don’t come more iconic than the Avenue des Champs Elysées, so if you want to do Paris in style then a stay at the five-star La Clef Champs-Elysées will do the trick. Located just off the famous street (right by Louis Vuitton so you can do a little window shopping on your way in and out) and only a short distance from the Arc de Triomphe, the Effiel Tower and the Grand Palais, La Clef Champs-Elysées couldn’t be in a better spot for those wanting to see the sights. Like its namesake, the property, part of The Crest Collection, is luxury through and through. The hotel is inside a former residence belonging to the Hennessy family, itself a 20th century Haussmannian-style building, with interiors designed by Jean-Philippe Nuel. La Clef Champs-Elysées has 70 rooms, suites and apartments (some with fully equipped kitchens, making them ideal for families), all of which are elegantly decorated and fitted with all the mod-cons you could need, and some even boast a balcony view of the Eiffel Tower.

Refurbished during the pandemic, the five-star Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain is actually made up of three different 17th century buildings that housed smaller hotels, merged into one property, with 47 rooms and suites, a spa, the James Joyce bar and the Les Parisiens restaurant run by Michelin-starred chef, Thibault Sombardier. There’s tranquility to be found in the Spa des Prés, formerly a wine store, which makes use of the natural stone to create a minimalist, zen feel. The James Joyce bar (named after the author who finished writing Ulysses on the Rue du Pré-aux-Clercs where the hotel is located) adds the glamour, with wood pannelling, lots of book-filled shelved and plush jewel-toned furniture, with a cocktail menu that nods to the bar’s literary connection. The rooms are spacious too, with comfy beds, walk-in rain head showers, robes and CODAGE products in the bathroom, a Nespresso machine and LCD flat screen TV, making it the perfect crash pad after a day spent cafe hopping.
