Little Red Door
- No.36 The World's 50 Best Bars 2019
There are no signs outside Little Red Door, but behind that signature crimson entrance – echoing those used as a symbol for speakeasies in Prohibition-era America – lies one of Paris’s coolest bars, and a World’s 50 Best Bars stalwart. The cosy space features brick walls, flickering candles and furniture shipped over from London, including some absurdly comfortable chairs. Sit at the bar to be hypnotised by the mixology skills of the affable Scotsman Rory Shepherd and his team, who are as hospitable as they are skilled at whipping up the likes of ‘No.4’ (an effervescent blend of Beefeater Gin, açaí berries, absinthe, bière blanche and lemon).
