Jefrey’s, 75002

December 9, 2013 by Emma Bentley

Another less-talked-about offering on the Paris craft cocktail scene, Jefrey’s finally re-opened its doors in September 2013 after a quick refurbishment over the summer months. I have to say – I rather like the result.

Just as at the Experimental Cocktail Club situated right opposite, it has a small, speakeasy, almost hole-in-the-wall vibe, but push open the door, go down a couple of steps and you find yourself in a plush, double-level jazz joint.

Guillaume Bisiaux, formerly at the Prince de Galles, heads up the new operation. It is pretty sleek. Guillaume mans the bar while two girls ferret around taking orders and collecting glasses. The back bar comprises a wide range of great whiskies and other sought-after niche spirits from around the world (which sometimes get served with dark chocolate – more original than peanuts or popcorn.) The cocktail list is well-considered and interesting… and the results are some of the most beautiful drinks I’ve seen in a very long time.

A cocktail will set you back somewhere between 10 and 16€, which admittedly is rather on the hefty side, even for Paris. However, I particularly liked the idea of buying a full bottle of booze, rather than cocktails by the glass, and they’ll keep the bottle for you until the next time…… dangerous!

All these grapes are #handharvested but when the #pergolaveronese #vineyard is so high, sometimes you have to use a little heavy machinery!

La Vigne du Perron – KATAPNHA 2009

Once upon a time, for a fortunately very brief moment, the wine world that I was surrounded by was full of English men in red trousers (tendentially) boasting about the old vintages that they’d recently (or not so recently) tasted. The conversation would go something like: > “Oh, don’t you remember how wonderful the Chateau […]
