Whenever new trendy bars open in Paris, they seem to always be on the right bank. Luckily, this might change a little with the Playtime, especially if you like cocktails and fashionable photos.
This bar is located within the Artus Hotel. The 50s decoration might remind you of one of Jacques Tati’s movies.
The menu offers all the classical kinds as well as some more original cocktails, including the Love Hangover. In any case, you will find something that suits the mood of the day, whether you like your cocktail to be powerful or fruity. The bartender has been trained in prestigious bars including the Plaza Athenee and the Royal Monceau.
I chose the French Love cocktail, a subtle combination of vodka, Chambord, peach liquor, raspberry and cranberry juice.
If you wish to keep a memory of your night, don’t forget to try their Harcourt photobooth : €10 per photo or €17 if you order a cocktail with it. If you have never heard of Harcourt, their photo studios have immortalized the most famous figures of the 20th and 21st centuries. The photobooth itself will be available until January 17th.
The address :
Playtime, 34 rue de Buci – 75006 Paris
The bar is open from 6pm until 1am to the public and is located only 2 minutes away from the Mabillon metro station.
