Walk around the 18th arr of Paris close to metro Abbesses is on a sneaky corner street in the Montmartre neighborhood – a stones throw from the Wall of Love / Le Mur de je t’aime, and just beside another newbie that’s a favorite among locals in the know – Les Levres Rouges.
Persifleur is a cool place in Montmartre where you’ll probably have the cocktail of your life! The team will take good care of you and your group. We stumbled in one Friday night after dinner next door, and had some cocktails and even indulged in the beers as they seemed like a fun craft selection – turns out was curated by Paris Beer geek Tasting Nitch.
You won’t find the typical drinks here as the cocktail menu was carefully crafted with a selection of house made creation from Whiskey, Rum, Vodka or Mezcal.
Swing back the door – step over to the bar stay in this first area were you can sit on high chairs or walk to the back in the darker cosy room with arm chairs that make you want to smoke a cigar. The scene is sexy, cool and intimate. But fun for a group too. You can even ask for a made for you cocktail, the barman is one of the best in Paris!
We tried the IPA Old Fashioned – which is made with a beer syrup is quite sweet with cardamom and Monkey Shoulder Whiskey, if you’re into tangy drinks don’t try this one. It was “sucre”!
