After the bar hidden in a taqueria or at the back of a pizzeria, here's the speakeasy hidden on the 1st floor of a launderette! Lavomatic took up residence in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, and has been the talk of the town ever since!

Drink a cocktail while you wait for your dirty laundry to get clean! That's the plan at Lavomatic. This cocktail bar belongs to the circle of Parisian speakeasies, those well-hidden and highly sought-after places. And with good reason: the bar is located behind the door of a laundromat, nestled on rue René Boulanger in the 10th arrondissement.

Once in the laundry, look for the camouflaged button and enter the Laundromat!

If the original pop decor (faded walls, colorful Verner Panton carpets, a swing as a chair, Kilim cushions.... ), the beverages on offer will do the rest.

The bar offers wine, with a selection of natural wines produced on small organic or biodynamic plots, as well as cocktails.

On the menu?"Le Basilic Instinct", with fresh basil, cucumber, lime juice, elderflower cordial, egg white and Hendrick's cucumber and rose gin, or"Le DetoxOmatic", with beet, blackcurrant, artichoke liqueur, gin, lemon and grapefruit.

Also discover the"Joséphine", made with fresh mandarin purée, Compagnie des Indes Latino Rum, mandarin liqueur, egg white, Get 31 spray and dehydrated peppermint, or the"Spider Pig", made with Jameson Irish Whiskey, Carpano Antica Formula red Vermouth, Drambuie Whisky Liqueur, liquid smoke sauce, black garlic and Bitter tabac.
