Rouge à Lèvres: the new favourite wine bar of Parisiennes

 Wine Bar and Tapas at Grands Boulevards chez Serge Ahovey in Paris

Helloooo daaaarling !”, “How are you my sweet ?”, “Welcome !”... The tone is set, the kiss is genuine and the smile communicative. Welcome to the new venue of Serge Ahovey, the very friendly big boss of La Mangerieand who has opened on the Grands Boulevardsa brand new wine bar with tapas where one immediately feels terrific.

First cute wink, Rouge à Lèvresis named after tell-tell signs on the mouth after having sipped a few glasses or red wine.  Not something we enjoy necessarily, but that Serge finds adorable when his girlfriend smiles.

 Asparagus dishes and organic rosé wine from the red wine bar

Here one finds the codes that led to the success of his quasi mythical address in the Marais, with a chill ambiance leading to close tables, trees coming out of the floor, enchanted doors and comfy nibbles. The small plus here is the décor inspired by the hosts trips to Bali with panoramic tropicool wallpaper, velvet banquettes and palm tree hanging fixtures.

Yet as Serge admits readily, Balinese bars are not really known for their cocktails or their wine selection. Lucky strike, here it’s Paris and the wine list is tops. By the glass: Pouilly Fumé (€9.5), organic rosé (€7), biodynamic Sicilian red (€9). By the bottle: Côte de Nuits (€54),Chardonnay (€39) or Macon (€35).

Tapas galore

While the house preparations (poached egg, mousse of mushrooms and  bread croûtons €8.6 with raw swordfish tataki and tartare of tomatoes €13.8) had a few seasoning issues when we dropped by, we highly recommend their safe values such as gouda cheese with truffle(13.2€), cecina of beef from Galicia (€13.8), burrata-tomatoes-pesto (€13.5), white ham with truffle (€13.2) or the Petrossian tarama(€9.8). All served on amusing platters with handles? Not easy to describe, you will notice once there between two laughing gigs with the staff. Cheers!

Open Tuesday to Saturday 6pm-1am.

Also discover the must-know hot new club and the Caribbean bar that is making Paris totally zouk.
