Josephine Caves Parisiennes is a lovely addition to the already crowded bar scene in the Oberkampf area; it’s a hip, speakeasy-style bar, inspired by the magnificently sensual Joséphine Baker and the glamour of a bygone era, which serves an array of sophisticated cocktails, superior wines and rare whiskies. The venue itself is an attractive art deco space, low lit and very atmospheric as you might expect, with ivy green walls, a striking ceramic ceiling and shelves stuffed with wine bottles and what appears to be the contents of an apothocary. There’s a smoking room (but of course), a small space for late night dancing and a glass floor which allows you to peek down into the wine cellar. There are two distinct bar areas – one devoted to wine and champagnes, the other to their creative cocktail list. House cocktails include the signature Joséphine, a delicious blend of chartreuse, calvados, line, absinthe, and grapefruit zest. The food menu features a selection of small plates like duck rillettes and supreme de langoustine as well as plates of cheese and charcuterie. The pace picks up as the night ticks on, with DJs arriving on the scene and the atmosphere getting altogether livelier.
