    Entering through the doors of an unassuming laundromat may not be the start of too many nights out in Paris, but for those that take the plunge at Lavomatic, an experience like nothing else in the City of Light awaits.

    Entering through the doors of an unassuming laundromat may not be the start of too many nights out in Paris, but for those that take the plunge at Lavomatic, an experience like nothing else in the City of Light awaits.
    Lavomatic is perched on the third floor of an apartment-style building on Rue Boulanger, only a short stroll from the République Metro stop, offering creatively crafted cocktails in a fanciful pop-art inspired atmosphere.

    Well, for those that can find their way to the bar, that is. The bar at Lavomatic can only be reached by scaling a spindly staircase hidden at the rear of the laundromat below (hint: look behind the washing machines), and while many may be quick to call Lavomatic a ‘speakeasy’, its atmosphere is the furthest thing from dark and hidden.
    The room glows with bold and bright colors with fun additions like swings and laundry detergent soap boxes adding to the fun atmosphere.
    The drink card is simple yet sophisticated with tipples like the Basil Instinct – cucumber, lemon, elderflower, and gin – and the berry-infused French Love showing off a cocktail prowess among the bar’s staff almost as impressive as the creativity displayed in choosing a venue.
    And if you are wondering, yes, the washing machines are fully functional, so you are more than encouraged to wash your clothes downstairs while you wash down cocktails upstairs.

    Martini: know your Dry from your Dirty The Martini is to drinking what the two-step is to dance: great its own but also a solid base with which to experiment. Any discerning drinker worth their salt (or olive brine) should have at least a passing acquaintance with it. The bartender’s lips may say she’s not judging you for not knowing your dry from your dirty, but her eyes tell a different story.
