A last drink at Manko

Manko Bar

The place: the brand new bar-restaurant-cabaret mounted by the infernal trio: Gaston Acurio, aka the Peruvian Ducasse, Benjamin Patou, the MC night-owl and Garou, who does not need to be presented. And let’s not forget Laura Gonzalez in terms of design. In other words, heavy-duty stuff for this Latino accent venue conceived for show-off evenings.

How it works: the ambiance goes up a notch when burlesque creatures show up around 10pm. Sip a sour Pisco (pisco, limette, bitter, 14€) or a revisited margarita (16€) in front of amazing sketches by off-the-wall performers.

Who does one run into? Patrick Bruel, Pascal Obispo, Calogero and the Enfoirés de Garou gang; fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth; Zahia, Arielle Domabsle and anonymous millionaires.

Open Monday to Saturday from 11am to 2am.
