Conceived by the same purveyors of custom cocktails behind Experimental Cocktail Club and Curio Parlor, Prescription Cocktail Club is a chill, low-profile speakeasy with a constant crowd of the trendy, the hip, and the cool lining up outside its doors.
The long bar on the first floor may be the centerpiece of the venue, but chic details like antique side tables, Japanese crane wallpaper, glowing table lamps, and a grand staircase topped by pendant lights in the shape of bowler hats straight out of a Magritte painting, combine to create the feel of a quirky yet stylish apartment – and to enhance the secret speakeasy vibe, a section of the wall of faux books on the second level slides open to reveal another bar behind.
Arrangements of plush sofas and wingbacks – usually reserved for bottle service – provide cozy nooks for lounging, while the rest of the floor space is given over to the vibrant patrons who pack the place to capacity on most nights.
Although there is a dance floor on the first level, it’s largely ignored by the guests, who prefer to indulge in what Prescription is all about: soaking up the whimsical atmosphere and flirting over perfectly prepared cocktails.
Unusual mix of trendy international girls, preppy boys, bohemian types, jet-setters, hipsters, and the local in-crowd, mid 20s to early 30s.
DJs most nights spin a variety of music from 80s to electronic and occasional hip-hop.
Upscale finger foods including two varieties of mini burgers with truffle mayo and whiskey ketchup, and lobster brioche served M–F.
Menu €10+. Beer €7, cocktails €10+, champagne €12+/glass.
Trendy casual, mixing high and low designer with basics.
Weekdays for the after-work scene and late night on Fridays and Saturdays for the best crowd.
Le Pub Saint Germain (17 Rue de l’Ancienne Comédie) serves food twenty-four hours a day.
