Parisian summers are hot. Quite hot. Everywhere is hot. So hot. Having a cocktail when the sun goes down often makes you feel perfectly refreshed.
The Club is one of my favorite spots in Paris for drinks. Their cocktails are so unique, but with the classics of course on the menu, and in such a wonderfully decorated space. Not to mention how kind their staff is, holy moly.
This particular night a specific group of girls got together. Contrary to what you may think, the American expat community is pretty tight here in Paris. I feel like we all know each other somehow, or know of each other at least, or maybe even we know someone who knows someone who knows the other person…. and the only thing that was missing was being all together in the same place at the same time. After Lauren’s summertime picnic at Parc Monceau, a new sporadic tradition was born…. spontaneous get togethers. The more the merrier. Ta da!
This hot summer evening, we gathered to enjoy a cocktail or five together. Amongst the crowd were the creative ladies behind Oh la la livia, Prêt à Voyager, The Francofly, Love in the City of Lights, Diane A Broad, Savoir Faire Paris, Prête-Moi Paris, Folies du Bonheur, Ella Coquine, Fox in Paris, Ambitieuse + a few other fabulous gals that I had the chance to meet. There was some mad mixology going on that night.
My favorite cocktail by the guys at The Club is their classic old fashioned, which is usually my favorite in most bars, but hey, theirs is darn good and the perfect mix of tangy sweet and bitter. It always is so refreshing, and the perfect way to kick off an evening. Cheers to that. Give their snacks a whirl, little club sandwiches or grilled cheese.
Thanks ladies for such a wonderful evening filled with deliciously crafted cocktails.
And if you haven’t stopped by The Club yet, you probably should.
