8th Arrondissement Bars & Nightlife
Le Baron (Closed)
6 Ave. Marceau, 8th
Though it has spidered into cities across the globe (there are now locations in Tokyo and New York), Le Baron in Paris is the original, and it's still our favorite. For one, it's small and intimate (it holds only 150); for two, the DJs are some of the best in the world; for three, those who make it past the tough door always turn it into a great party. Meanwhile, the red-hued décor takes a deep bow to the building's former life as an upscale brothel.
31 Ave. George V, 8th
Opulent to the max, Le Bar at the George V is one of our favorite places to tuck into a martini: It’s pricey, but it has atmosphere in spades, along with a well-heeled crowd. It's one of these places that feel like time just stops...or maybe it's just the wine.
