Experimental Cocktail Club
The quiet cobbled street, tiny brass sign, and nondescript door give little indication that the Experimental Cocktail Club is located here in the Montorgueil district. Designed by New Yorker Cuoco Black, the lounge mixes baroque and rustic styles with a zinc bar, two chandeliers, exposed brick walls, thick timber ceiling beams, and black velvet drapes. Live DJ’s mix eclectic tunes while the talented bartenders craft precision cocktails, a rarity in France. The inventive menu changes with the seasons and includes the signature Experience 1 cocktail, made with vodka, lemon juice, basil, lemongrass, and elderflower cordial.
