4 Hot Tips To Swingin' In Paname
With June here, the floodgates are open to another wild season of frivolity in the City of Light. For Paname fans there are many hot choices to eat, drink, and let out your inner party animal. Here are our 4 hot picks for swinging in Paname.
SoPi is old news to Panamers. However, this neighborhood continues to sizzle across the board. Thereís a new steakhouse serving up aged beef to down for just up the road from Alex Haircuts. These guys continue to trim and cut the hottest locks in town. Best of all you can spot anyone who has been to Alex. His cuts are distinctive and highlight the best in the barberís art.
Once youíve got the SoPi look head over to Glass. It sits next to a typical Pigalle sex shop. Donít be put off by the guerrilla outside or the unassuming neon sign. Be prepared to wait like a sardine in an enclosure before youíre given the green light to enter the bar.
The ambiance is dark and the crowd is always in party mode. One of my colleagues says this is where disco jive meets dacha dive. The big ticket this season is Tattoo You. No, they are not selling signed copies of the Rolling Stones record. Itís the must drink cocktail of the season made with mezcal, ginger, grapefruit, lime and beer. Drink two of these and youíre ready to cha-cha.
Hep cats munch on hotdogs and homemade pickles when theyíre not bobbing up and down like fish bait. No this is not Studio 54, but the lights on the dance floor will give you dirty danciní flashbacks. If you canít get in, try Dirty Dicks across the street. DDs specialize in Mai Taiís. Pretend youíre in a re-make of South Pacific. Throw caution to the winds, Bali Hi style.
In case you find yourself near the Louvre, check out Le Fumoir. Since itís opening, itís been packed out day and night. Punters love the food while tipplers go big on their cocktails. We counsel booking in advance. No point in being turned away at the door. If you want to pretend that youíre living in a Scott Fitzgerald novel order a couple of gin fizzes. If you really want to go big time, make them pink. This was Zeldaís favorite. Great place to people watch and have a stellar lunch.
For something a bit out of the ordinary, we recommend this taqueria. Think Montezuma and Indiana Jones. Perfect for stoners who love anything grilled. Although the eating area is just large enough to swing a cat, right behind the back wall is one of the best cocktail lounges in Paris.
Their margaritas kick ass and will put you under the volcano in no time. Who knows you might even meet a Malcolm Lowry wannabe. Reminds me of a place I knew in the West Village. Speakeasy gravitas laced with the casualness to keep you smiling. Their tacos and tostadas should soak up all that alcohol. To top the evening off you could head to Chez Castel in Saint Germain. Just bring someone with long sleek legs. Then youíre guaranteed to get in. Cheers!
