Because the concept of the hidden bar relies on secret and mystery, we won’t tell you much about Secret 8 precise location.
Yet, know that it’s nestled within the legendary Buddha-Bar Paris. This bar within a bar invites you to live out a true cocktail experience thanks to 10 signature cocktails, with or without alcohol, as good-looking as good-tasting.
To enjoy in a wonderful and original glassware bargain-hunted across the world, these incredible beverages are mixed by Barman Chef Régis Celabe in partnership with Matthias Giroud.
On the menu? The vegetal “#Nolimit” with gin, snow peas and Japanese Sansho bays reduction, lime and coconut water, or the much more floral “Butterfly Requiem” based on Prosecco, elderberry water liquor with kefir lime essential oil, yellow lime and pomegranate.
Behind this new and unique place, we find the founder of Buddha-Bar, Tarja Visan, and the founder of Tigre Blanc Paris group, Mareva Essia.
Together, these two women wished to create a place that look like them: a new cocktail-bar experience of which the atmosphere and the music are inspired by the Anglo-Saxon and American culture they love so much.
