Are you ready to board a Night Flight? This cozy cocktail bar in the elegant and modern Bachaumont boutique hotel is a den for Parisian Bobos and trendy travelers alike. Located in the hip Montorgueil area, this is the spot for cocktail lovers seeking a chic and sophisticated atmosphere.
The Night Flight bar is part of the ‘Experimental Group,’ a collective of passionate Parisian mixologists who have revolutionized the cocktail scene in the capital. Since opening their first bar, the Experimental Cocktail Club, ten years ago, the cocktail connaisseurs opened a series of similarly hip speakeasy-style bars all around Paris.
Located on the ground floor of the beautiful Hotel Bachaumont, the Night Flight bar takes its name from the title of a novel by French writer and aviator, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Lesser known than his famous Le Petit Prince, Saint-Exupéry’s second novel Vol de Nuit (Night Flight) takes you on an adventurous journey with a group of airmail pilots in South America in the 1930s.
Like the book, the bar’s dimly lit, comfy atmosphere induces the reverie of flying over the Andes at night. The bartenders, however, certainly don’t have their heads in the clouds. Precise and focused in the execution of their cocktails, they skillfully blend rare liqueurs, fresh ingredients, and quality spirits to create well-balanced, aromatic drinks: from the peaty Ard’Smash to the flowery Vol de Nuit. Cocktail lovers won’t be disappointed!
While you’re there, be sure to take a look outside the bar to appreciate the sleek and modern design of the hotel’s corridors and the restaurant just next to it, with its open kitchen and contemporary decoration. With such a wonderful setting, you’re sure to want more nights like this!
