I have spent a week in Paris tasting wine, of course, but have also been researching the best cocktails in Paris at some of the most fun and upscale hotel bars. Not everyone’s budget allows for a stay at these luxury properties, but you can feel like a rockstar by ordering one of these special concoctions while visiting the City of Light.

Special thanks to the professionally trained bartenders at each location for treating me to the best cocktails in Paris! These are truly works of art and each bartender takes their career behind the bar seriously. If you think sommelier’s have the hardest job learning all the wines of the world, try being one of these busy guys and gals who have to know spirits from around the world. They make it look so easy, but watching them work furiously while maintaining a smile tells me otherwise!
