As soon as your work day is done, the Limbar changes and welcomes you in a Latino atmosphere with soft lights for London-like cocktail parties. Here, the barman chef gives free rein to his imagination to serve a custom and original list of drinks with or without alcohol. His idea: “presenting tomorrow’s cocktail”. New flavor fans will even go for the Tasting Menu including 3 different cocktails.

By day, although Limbar set on the ground floor of Cheval Blanc Paris provides you with a food offer inspired by Maxime Frédéric’s baked good menu, as soon as afternoon tea is over, the place dramatically changes and invites you to enjoy delicious cocktails shaken by barman chef Florian Thireau, here almost every night.

Soft lights and Latino music are in to lighten up your night and take the décor up a notch with wonderful colors and woodworks made of African limba wood, an exotic wood essence coming from western and central Africa.

When he explains the concept of this new place, Florian starts by telling us about his experiences in different countries, and especially the Anglo-Saxon vibe he wants to give to Limbar. He wishes to import London-inspired cocktail parties to Paris.

According to Florian, Limbar is a geek bar or an experience-filled bar. He explains he wishes to present “tomorrow’s cocktail” and compares his work to a starred-chef’s: he thinks his part is to take patrons to enjoy a “discovery”. The barman considers he has a part as an advisor to help patrons select the discovery that will delight them the most.

For instance, his signature cocktail is what he likes to call the “conceptualization of rosé champagne”, namely a sparkling mix of 13 ingredients based on honey, orange blossom and vanilla. It required 70 hours of work to achieve the expected outcome, namely a fresh, light and original cocktail aiming at making champagne more affordable. The alcoholic version of this elixir is based with fresh gin, and is served in a champagne flute.

The chef also proudly explains us that at Limbar, every single alcoholic cocktail can come in a “mirror versionwithout alcohol, guaranteeing the identic flavor, but in a virgin version. He says creating alcohol-free cocktails is as important as their liquored twins.

To pair drinks, Limbar also serves a tapas menu especially created to pair cocktails and improve them. But as Florian likes to remind, at nightfall, Limbar is first and foremost “a place truly dedicated to cocktails”!

Alcohol abuse is bad for your health, please drink responsibly.
