Once I’ve found something I like, whether it be food or drink, I tend to stick to it and rarely order anything new or different. A bit boring, I know. But sometimes I do tire of my typical cocktail of choice, and that’s when I head to Bisou.

Although aesthetically similar to other trendy spots today — complete with extravagant floral arrangements, pink neon lights, and funky wallpaper in the bathroom that makes the perfect background for selfies — , Bisou.’s unique concept sets it apart from the scores of cool Paris cocktail bars. There’s no drink menu here; the bartenders craft custom-made cocktails based on your personal tastes. And all for 13€.

When you arrive, one of the super friendly staff will come to your table and explain everything to you. And don’t worry, they all speak English.

Your server will ask you what you like: Do you prefer (or dislike) certain spirits? Do you like fruity or floral? Smokey or not? Fizzy or flat? They’ll take note and a few minutes later, a pretty and slightly mysterious drink will be placed in front of you. All that’s left is to take that exciting first sip!

Every time I’ve visited Bisou., the mixology has been spot on. I’ve never gotten the same cocktail twice and each has been absolutely delicious and very pleasantly surprising. You really can’t go wrong here.

If you’re in the mood for something different, don’t hesitate to stop by. This bespoke cocktail bar is quite popular though and they don’t take reservations, so best go early to ensure you can get a seat.
