Between strikes, cold and Michou’s death, we could definitely use a little cocktail to cheer us up! Perfect, we’ve found a great place a stone’s throw from Pigalle: Les Justes. So, meet now, Monday to Saturday from 6 p.m., in Paris 9th arrondissement to slightly get drunk.
In a cozy décor with colorful walls displaying drawings and pictures, we’re comfortable to enjoy a cocktail mastered by the place’s mixologist. And Les Justes don’t lack humor as show the cocktail names. Our favorite two: “J’ai vu ta soeur sur Tinder” [I saw you sister on Tinder] inspired by Pisco Sour and “La cerise sur le ghetto” [The icing on the ghetto] revisiting Boulevardier.
So, we went for the one that made us smile the more: “J’ai vu ta soeur sur Tinder”. Based on Pisco infused with cloves, Syrah, yellow lemon, the whole topped with a nice and creamy mousse made of egg white and sprinkled with cinnamon bitter, this spicy cocktail is as mischievous as its name suggests it.
Les Justes are funny but hearty, if you managed to type the Wi-Fi code (non-personalized then) on your first attempt in your phone, you’ll get a free shot! It’s super interesting! And to make sure you don’t get alcohol in an empty stomach, enjoy the lovely selection of tapas.
Another particularity at Les Justes, this bar is also a sort of art gallery where emerging artists display their works. If you fall in love with one of them, you can purchase one of the paintings and discover new talents! Also note that Les Justes enjoy a room in the back, perfect for a birthday, for instance. So, for a before or an after, meet in Pigalle to try these flavorful cocktails.
