Good deal ahead! Hidden in a discreet corner of the Aux Vins des Pyrénées bar, Le 1905 provides cocktail fans and fans of other surprising beverages to travel back in time, to the early 20th century, in a Belle Epoque atmosphere that is also very laid-back. This speakeasy (or hidden bar for novices) is set in Paris 4th arrondissement and welcomes curious people who noticed the small and hidden staircase on the right of the bistro façade, known to have been Jim Morrison’s wine cellar.
If you dare to go there, you’ll “leave to discover a cocktail bar hidden above the restaurant that looks like an English apartment and a curiosity cabinet”. A magical and even atypical place like a “London shabby-chic where 60’s velvet armchairs rub shoulders with marbled tables and Belle Epoque pedestal tables” with walls covered in Farrow & Ball green smoke, brown and burgundy.
Moving on to the menu, eight cocktails with revealing names are available for exotic drink enthusiasts: you can choose the “A Rebours” mixing pampero especial with bitter angostura, peppermint or go for the “Paris est une fête” – an ode to Hemingway – based on J. Walker Black, Amaretto, bitter Peychaud, seasoned with a dash of passion fruit and lime. About the other drinks, we say nothing to keep the surprise untouched and we invite you to go there to discover these cocktails that are all very delicious. We also want to remind you that alcohol abuse is bad for your health, please drink responsibly.
Beverages entirely created by a young female barmaid, Adèle Fardeau who worked between 2015 and 2017 at the Mandarin Oriental Paris. And for the luckiest patrons, an exclusive terrace – the most confidential one in Paris – is also available, as well as a reconverted room and completing the area, filled with surprises and curiosities to discover… Let’s go back in time, friends, shall we?
