It’s inspired by the American bars of the Prohibition era but Little Red Door is a speakeasy that doesn’t take itself too seriously – there’s no membership or secret password to get in. LRD is for everyone, and they like it that way. Located in the Haut Marais, which is about as hip a Parisian neighbourhood as you can get, LRD is filled with a mixed crowd who are a little bit cool – artists, designers and creative types. Enter through two doors, (one naturally little and red), and stroll up to the bar for cocktails to die for before settling into one of the patchwork armchairs or velvet barstools. The bar is definitely where you need to be. The drinks philosophy is one of good old-fashioned fun so they bend the classic rules of mixology, even break them, but still remain true to the spirits and blend some damn fine sips. Pick up a Bobby Fisher – Four Roses small batch Bourbon, red wine, salty pineapple syrup, lemon juice and rose lemonade – it’s buttery, floral and a thirst quencher, and as moreish as it gets.
