Jan 23, 2013 —  You’d think sipping a finely crafted Blood & Sand on the banks of the Seine in Paris or nursing an Autumn Thyme while lollygagging along London’s Thames would have been part of the signature European experience for centuries, but really it’s only in the last few decades that cocktail bars in Europe have become as ubiquitous as, well, Europeans.

That’s not to say you can’t find a few historic cocktail bars in this part of the world, with several early 20th Century havens to fine drink still going strong in Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, and beyond, but we’re happy to report that the mixology craze still sweeping across the U.S. has taken a firm foothold across the pond as well.

From funky neighborhood joints to high-end lounges touting fresh infusions that cost more than your first car, cocktail bars in Europe are easy to find…but not so easy to leave.

We’ve picked out some of our favorites here for you to check out. You’ll probably see us hanging in the booth in back when you go, savoring our Chartreuse Swizzle with pride.
