In its heyday, Harry's was paid regular visits by none other than Hemingway himself. Cut to present times, and the bar is as smoky as ever sans Hemingway or his ghost. Sit back with one of the original Bloody Mary's recipe (which still tastes the same as when Harry's opened) and soak up the historic atmosphere of this historic bar that dates back over a 100 years. Other classic cocktails like French 75 and Side Car have also been said to originate here.
Club Silencio was the most talked about nightclub opening in Paris in 2011. Located in the 2nd arrondissement, the club is the brainchild of bizarre Hollywood director David Lynch.

Club Silencio is very exclusive and popular, with admission being restricted to members before midnight. Once you get in though, the interiors are decidedly chic and modern, and just a little bit surreal. Silencio has a good selection of specialty cocktails and some finger foods and small bites.
