Party Earth L'Autobus Impérial Review

The Scene

Situated right by the Les Halles shopping center, L'Autobus Impérial is an elegant and welcoming bar and restaurant perfect for unwinding over cocktails after a day of shopping at Benetton and H&M.

Situated right by the Les Halles shopping center, L’Autobus Impérial is an elegant and welcoming bar and restaurant perfect for unwinding over cocktails after a day of shopping at Benetton and H&M.

Intricate screens, crystal chandeliers, candelabra, and closely clustered café tables and tufted chairs give the place a slightly antique vibe, in contrast to the sleek marble bar where very modern young professionals line up to sip fruity mojitos and champagne cocktails.

Mirrored walls reflect chic couples chatting by candlelight, as groups of girlfriends and weary tourists breeze in looking to gossip and relax over salmon tartare.

Warm weather draws diners out to the wide patio, where they settle into wicker chairs for a bit of people-watching and specialty cocktails.

Though the décor is stylish, the drinks elaborate, and the location ritzy, L’Autobus Imperial allows its patrons to tie one on in a relaxed and classy environment after a hectic day of toting bags and swiping credit cards.

If you’re on a budget, try the 10 for €25 shots, and then throw in some appetizers. For a really fun evening, have the guacamole and tortillas accompanied by vodka caramel shots – they literally taste like alcoholic flan!
