Le Rubis Wine Bar (1e)

Situated in the heart of the 1st Arrondissement, just steps away from the Tuileries Garden and next door to Place Vendôme, Le Rubis Wine Bar is surprisingly an absolute neighborhood joint.

For over 30 years, Willi’s Wine Bar in Paris’ 1st Arrondisement, has welcomed locals and visitors alike with a delightful selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle.

Ô Chateau Wine Bar (1er)

Ô Chateau Wine Bar (1er)

Ô Chateau for me is like an old friend. It was here that I was first introduced to the Parisian wine bar experience, and from the very beginning, I felt a connection right away. I say it reminds me of an old friend because since then, every time I go to the City of Lights, this is(…)

Pain. Vin. Fromages (4e)

Pain. Vin. Fromages (4e)

The aromas coming from Pain. Vin. Fromages, while literally about 1/2 a block away, are especially captivating and tempting to say the least. In fact, this is how I found the cosy family-style restau (as the French call restaurants) owned by two brothers in the Marais quarter. I had just left La Niche pet shop(…)
