Mabel, the grilled cheese speakeasy

Interior atmosphere and decoration of Mabel Cocktail Bar and Cocktail Bar with Clément Blanc Rum, Clarified Organic Hazelnut Milk, Organic Coconut Water, Organic Banana, Genmaicha Tea, Organic Spicy Maple Syrup, Oleo-Saccharum, Togarashi, Vanilla

This new top secret bar in the Sentier district features 2 obsessions we adore. Here are the tips:

1) It is hidden behind the Grilled-Cheese Shop facade, served in take-away mode or with cocktails. Special kudos to the classic cheddar or pulled-pork (starting at 6€)

2) The hot barman on the scene, Joseph Akhavan is a potion genius, who shakes up amazing cocktails, especially those with rum, in homage to Mabel, the assistant of a very “Dr Jekyll et Mister Hyde” prosecutor during the Prohibition who use to get sloshed in forbidden bars as soon as she had finished her anti-drink work…

How to get there: walk through the door of this hole-in-the-wall sandwich shop, push open a second door and land in this intimate enclave. To sip absolutely: TRADER WHO with Rum + barley water pine nuts-coconut + fresh green lemon, Black Ceylan bitters #killer.

PS: the Grilled Cheese Shop is open for dinner from Monday to Saturday if you want to grab a quick bite.

Open Monday to Saturday from 6pm to 2am.
