The Scene

Developed by the same team who created the popular Experimental Cocktail Club, Curio Parlor joined the Latin Quarter scene in 2008 and has since developed a loyal (arguably die-hard) following of young mixology lovers.

Developed by the same team who created the popular Experimental Cocktail Club, Curio Parlor joined the Latin Quarter scene in 2008 and has since developed a loyal (arguably die-hard) following of young mixology lovers.

After entering through an unmarked door and a set of velvet curtains, patrons find themselves in a cozy room with an over-the-top décor and a decided speakeasy flair.

Along with the taxidermied animals posed here and there, the space features a huge acrylic chandelier, a few cushy chairs, and a posh illuminated bar.

Curio Parlor takes its drinks seriously and, in addition to serving a variety of custom cocktails, claims to be the only Japanese Nikka (whiskey) bar in Paris.

Customers who prefer a bit of music can check out the downstairs level, which offers a second bar and a domed lounge area, as well as a collection of curio cabinets full of bones and animal specimens.

Although late-night guest DJs play 80s and alternative pop, Curio Parlor’s stylishly cool crowd is usually more interested in mingling and conversation than dancing.

Curio Parlor User Reviews

Low key Mix bar
Grant C. Jun 3, 2013
Curio offers a trendy alternate to many of the traditional bars in the area, the emphasis lies in mixed cocktails rather than a wide variety of beers. As a result the bar seems to draw a more sophisticated crowd who on any given night can offer great conversation and banter. I've found that based on the hefty price of drinks this bar makes for a nice place to stop for an hour and take in the ambience but I would suggest moving on to cheaper venues as the night progresses. The bars main selling point is its talented bartenders trained in mixology, the interesting drink creations and names makes the ordering process much more enjoyable. In review the bar has its strengths as being a trendy spot to hang out and meet interesting people and sip intriguing cocktails, however the steep prices make it a treat to be enjoyable sparingly.
