Paris-Bastille and the Marais
May 11, 2018
Keep your eyes on this place, it’s bound to be big. The brainchild of the talented Joseph Akhavan, this self-proclaimed “Cocktail Den and Rum Empire” has got people in the industry aflutter. It’s a handsome space with a winningly retro black and orange interior, a dash of Mad Men chic. It’s a long room with a counter at which you can perch and watch the man in action. Bringing his continuing obsession with the spirit to the forefront, the bar is a celebration of all things rum-related, with a collection of 106 or so to sample, they boast rare rums, rum flights, rum cocktails, rum classes and more. Lots and lots of lovely rum, enough to keep a whole fleet of sailors happy. Of course there are other spirits on offer as well. When they open up their planned adjoining Grilled Cheese Shop this place is going to leap to the top of everyone’s lists.
