Unless you’re Coco Chanel, it’s not every day that you enjoy a good glass of champagne. If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion with a ‘coupe’, why not do it in a setting that is as exceptional as the drink itself?

Whether it’s to ring in the New Year, celebrate an important event, or simply toast to the fact that you’re in Paris, champagne is always a good idea.

While there are plenty of bars Ă  champagne in the City of Light, here are my suggestions for where to go for a great glass of bubbly in an exceptional atmosphere.

The Best Champagne Bars in Paris:

1. Le Dokhan’s Bar

117 Rue Lauriston, 75116 Paris

Just a 5-minute walk from the TrocadĂ©ro, this hotel bar is one of the best places in Paris to drink a glass of champagne. A favorite of Parisians in the know but a bit of a secret to most, the bar’s homey yet refined atmosphere puts you right at ease while also letting you know that you’re somewhere special.

A lovely light green covers the walls and velvet armchairs, right down to the rich wooden floors, with golden accents recalling the color of your drink of choice. Le Dokhan’s sommeliers will help you choose from over 200 champagnes, with dĂ©gustations every night of the week starting at just 18€ a glass. SantĂ©!

3. Dilettantes

22 Rue de Savoie, 75006 Paris

If you’d like to learn a bit more about your champagne as you sip, Dilettantes is the place to go! This literal cave Ă  champagne located in the Quartier Latin lets you taste from a selection of over 150 champagnes in a 17th-century cellar, starting at 9€ a glass for Ă  la carte selections. After your dĂ©gustation, you can buy a bottle (or several) of your favorite to take home.

4. Cave PĂ©tillance

19 Rue Condorcet, 75009 Paris

Don’t let the laid-back, approachable atmosphere of this spot fool you; they’re serious about champagne. Owners Hugo and Emmanuel really know their stuff and are happy to share their knowledge while you select from the many different cĂ©pages.

Starting at 8€ for a small glass, PĂ©tillance offers several champagnes by the glass and many, many more by la bouteille, either to taste on site or to take with you. This is a great place for beginners—there’s no intimidating champagne snobbery in sight!

2. Les Ambassadeurs

10 Place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris

Set in one of Paris’s 18th-century luxury hotels, the HĂ´tel de Crillon, Les Ambassadeurs is perhaps the perfect place to have a truly exceptional champagne experience. The incredibly elegant bar boasts gorgeous marble work, painted ceilings, and over 100 different champagnes starting at 27€ a glass.

Arguably one of the most beautiful bars in Paris, Les Ambassadeurs also offers impeccable service and live music. The five-star atmosphere is definitely worth the small splurge!
