Experimental Cocktail Club

37 rue St-Sauveur, 2nd
M° Etienne Marcel
Tel 01 45 08 88 09

The old Sur Mesure is now a sexy cool bar, run by three hip young French men. The Montorgueil district has been dying for a decent (new) design bar (the Etienne Marcel isn't nearly as cozy). Sleek, young, edgy and beautiful could describe both the décor (done by a New Yorker) and the clientele. Live DJs, friendly staff, and affordable (€10) cocktails keep it real. The minimalist-neo-baroque setting with black chesterfields and a zinc bar make for the perfect backdrop to the Champagne and vodka cocktails. I particularly like the Experimental 1, but so far I haven't had a bad cocktail here!

I totally agree with you as I had the opportunity to go there.
The place was designed by the new-yorker Cuoco black (You will actually have the opportunity to see him on the 3 pillows on the coaches at the back of the bar. These were designed as a tribute to his work).
The staff is friendly and the litchee cocktail (can t remember the name, sorry) is really perfect!

Everything about this place is great bar/drinks/atmosphere except that it's small and can get packed... still if you can snag a sofa they're heaven. Going back tonight. Have you heard much about the club cha cha?
