Delicious Cocktails at a Hidden Paris Hotel
Quite possibly the most private hotel in Paris
(it’s set off the road, down a private alley, behind a black gate and then another, perched over the city in Montmartre), the Hôtel Particulier Montmartre has been a magnet for in-the-know locals and a few famous faces seeking quiet, since it opened in 2007. But as of 2015, it’s for the robust food and cocktails program that they head to the 18th arrondissement. Le Très Particulier (and very sexy) cocktail bar-terrace kicked things off and was followed by Le Mandragore and its multi-course gastronomic menu created by chef Thibaut Spiwack. The imprint of his travels are unmistakable in savory and sweet dishes like warm foie-gras in a broth infused with Havana cigars or a dark chocolate dessert with confit ginger and Thai basil.
