The maze of medieval streets crowded with restaurants, cafés and boutiques of the Marais, which culminate in the romantic Place des Vosges where Victor Hugo once lived, remains one of the most pleasant neighborhoods in Paris.
 
On the Rive droite, between the third and the fourth arrondissement, this area is both timeless and rich in history and inevitably fashionable thanks to its many hip nightlife spots. Among the positive implications of its being trendy, the Marais offers a number of really good places to sip a great cocktail surrounded by the bohemian atmosphere of the neighborhood. As a matter of fact, the Marais in not immune to the global cocktail bar and speakeasy revival that sees bartenders and their creations as the protagonists. Here are some places you should definitely consider for your next visit.
 
Sherry Butt
Exposed bricks, wooden floors and velvet chairs. And a large counter on top of which is a blackboard where you can read the list of the cocktails prepared by super-expert creative bartenders. In short, there are all the ingredients to make this venue really cool, including DJ sets on weekends.
 
Mary Celeste
In this beautifully designed nautical-style bar hidden behind a rue Commines door, cocktails have been conceived of as the excellent accompaniment to the real protagonist: the freshly-prepared fish cuisine, including oysters. Everything is served around the crowded counter in small, beautifully crafted portions, along with plenty of crispy vegetables.
 
Little Red Door
A small corner of New York City in the heart of the Marais marked by the little red door it owes its name to, loved for the perfect and sophisticated atmosphere, for the beauty of the place but especially for the excellent cocktails, prepared with fresh ingredients from local suppliers.
 
Candelaria
An authentic taqueria and a cocktail bar of the highest level: with this unprecedented formula, in 2011 Candelaria won over the Marais and the whole city. And it continues to be considered one of the best bars in the world.
 
Le Vieux Comptoir du Cap Horn
A much-loved Chilean bar just a stone's throw from Place de Vosges where you can drink the authentic pisco sour, one Ernest Hemingway's favorite drinks. The few outdoor tables and the baroque interiors make it really unique.
