Party Earth Les Étages Review

The Scene

Les Étages in Paris’ Marais is a funky, multi-level bar with great fruity cocktails & a fun young crowd. Make every hour in Paris a Happy Hour with Party Earth.

In French, “étages” can refer to the floors in a building or to layered drinks – the kinds that employ different liqueurs to create colored layers – and guests will indeed find multiple floors and an extensive selection of colorful cocktails at the funky Les Étages.

Located in an 18th-century former hotel, the chaotically decorated bar looks like the abode of a crazy artist, with mosaic tables and mismatched vintage chairs spread throughout, as well as old maps, charts, bullfighting posters, and other bric-a-brac tacked to the bright textured walls.

Exotic flowers and random sculptures seem to pop out from every available nook, while soft tropical lanterns hang above a bar helmed by bartenders who dole out lots of sweet concoctions – mojitos, margaritas, caipirinhas – or just as easily crack a beer or whip up a classic.

Daily Happy Hour from 6 to 8pm makes the place popular with groups of students, older hipsters, and trendy locals in need of a few €5.50 cocktails, while birthday and other celebratory gatherings routinely rent a space upstairs, where the remaining floors offer multiple nooks full of rustic baroque sofas and armchairs perfect for private affairs.

Marais being one of the more popular neighborhoods in Paris, Les Étages is regularly busy – especially come Fridays – but its eccentric atmosphere and fun crowd are sure to prompt many stories…no matter which story patrons end up on.

Tip from Emma:

Happy Hour is definitely worth checking out, though keep in mind that the cocktails during this time are a bit smaller than most of the regular, non-HH drinks.

    Artsy students, birthday groups, cocktailers with a sweet tooth, tourists in need of a Happy Hour cocktail, diverse set of trendy Marais barhoppers, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Live jazz every Wednesday night from mid-October–May from 8:30–11pm.

    Ambient rock and indie.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Happy Hour daily 6–8pm.

  • Prices

    Beer €4–€8.50, wine €5–€6, cocktails and mixed drinks €4–€12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: white t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, lots of berets, striped skirts, fitted sweaters, generally the “hobo chic” look.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Daily during Happy Hour to try the place on for size or Thursdays through Saturdays for the biggest crowds and a sizeable line at the bar.

Les Etages is Lovely
Teju A. Apr 12, 2013
Perfect for lounging with a group of friends to have some cocktails after strolling in the Marais. With space upstairs and down stairs, you can sit on the ground floor next to windows for a great view of people watching, or upstairs away from the sidewalk. The waiters are friendly and attentive behind a bar with black counters and blue lights and quite a variety of cocktails. Although all service happens at the bar even when it was crowded I was served pretty quickly. They even made a drink for me that I made up and were perfectly willing to do so, although I don't think this is encouraged. All in all Les Etages is a lovely lounge for a relaxing night out in Paris. If you want to party hard this is not the place, but if you want to chat and drink with friends then this is a great spot to hang out and enjoy Parisian life.
