Le Forvm is a Paris institution when it comes to delicious cocktails and whiskies, all served in an elegant lounge bar setting in the heart of the city.

Open since 1918 and owned by the same family since 1931, Le Forvm was recently forced to close its original location and move to a newer, shinier one – but this hasn’t affected its ambiance or extensive drinks list one bit. Retaining some of the decor features from the original location (including a pair of legendary nostalgia-inducing jukeboxes and a curved bar crammed with shiny spirit bottles), Le Forvm now also sports contemporary light fixtures and elegant leather couches to complete the lounge bar mood.   A true Parisian institution, Le Forvm is still famous for its cocktail list – served with flair by a team of suited bartenders – which contain top-shelf spirits, homemade syrups and fruity garnishes. The Royal Red is a regular favorite – champagne, red fruit puree, cranberry juice and black raspberry liquor – but the Tea Party (gin, vermouth, blackberry liqueur and homemade Earl Grey bitters) is equally as refreshing and delightful. There are many takes on classic concoctions (including a particularly delicious Spiced Zombie and photogenic Porn Star Martini) and there are also some humorously-name mocktails (a Bloody Shame, anyone?). The international whisky list is particularly impressive, but Le Forvm’s other spirits – including modern staples mezcal and pisco – and champagnes are equally as quaff-able. A small menu of tasting plates including foie gras, cheese and meat platters is also available.Photo Credit: http://www.bar-le-forum.com/
