Speakeasy lovers know it, many hidden bars are nestled in the Marais neighborhood in Paris. Since Spring 2018, the famous rue Saint Denis in Paris, goes strong thanks to the opening of a wonderful secret bar.
Its name? Liquorium. This real cabinet of curiosities is hidden in the basement of The Drink Doctor bar/brewery. By walking down the stairs, we discover The Drink Doctor’s fantastic and enigmatic universe.
Within this secret studio, we unquestionably dive into the Doctor’s world and discover his pharmacopeia and his mixologist remedies.
Behind this new hidden cocktail bar, we have Vincent Radix and Thomas Rochefort. After working in entertainment and cinema, the two buddies have come up with a place that is an invitation to travel with a breathtaking décor with items bargain hunted a bit everywhere. We love the mural by artist Lucie Legrand.
Moving on the menu, the Liquorium offers no fewer than 8 creation cocktails (from €12 to €14) and 2 soft cocktails (€8) by barmaid chef Audrey Charpenat.
Rum enthusiasts won’t resist the “Death Black Spot” made of 7-year Havan rhum, spiced rhum sailor jerry, coconut cream, guava juice, Tasmania pepper, black curry and coconut ball. Gin lovers will fall for the “Aphro-Therapie” cocktail, based on Gin Lord of Barbes, elderflower liquor, lemongrass shrub and cardamom, verbena et fresh lemongrass, fizzy water, tonic, egg white and primrose.
And to go even further in the experience, Liquorium invites budding mixologists to create their potions themselves trusting Doctor Drink’s grimoire. Test tubes and all the necessary tools are available, before the eyes and the sound advises of a barman to create the chosen recipes. Among the combination possible, there is the “Pisco Pop” (pisco, mint leaves and dehydrated spinach, yellow lemon, cane sugar, fizzy water and rosemary).
Please note this experience to live out between 4 and 6 people enables you to create a dozen cocktails from 90 minutes to 2 hours (allow €125).
