This bar's signature line is "haute couture cocktails." But don't let that frighten you, gentlemen, since they do honor sports here, too, and when there's a big rugby or soccer match on, you can often catch it here. There was a time when this bar fronted out onto the lobby, offering one an opportunity for display while libations were consumed. But since 2012, this luxury hotel created its very own little tucked away nook (formerly a ballroom) where one can sit in soothingly dim lighting and have quiet conversations over one of Maxime Hoerth's award-winning cocktail creations. The palace's signature cocktail is the Gingerbread Old Fashioned and there's nothing that this Meilleur Ouvrier de France – that is a coveted distinction here – likes to do more than create original cocktails that harmoniously speak to a given moment. There are DJ sets Wednesday through Saturday going as late as midnight.
- Bars: "Friday and Saturday evenings the DJ sets last all the way to midnight. And even though it might be easy to assume that this Parisian hotel bar would attract primarily stuffy international clients, it's actually a favorite of local Parisians, too, who tend to gather here for that after-the-office cocktail."
- Best for Bars Because: This is one of Paris' most glamorous locales in which to sip a cocktail.
