Welcome to Le Beef Club, developed by the Experimental Cocktail Club, Curio Parlor and Prescription, that are three of the best cocktail places at Paris.
Combining a street level restaurant and a basement cocktail bar and club, this is the fifth address in Paris for the trio who are behind Experimental Cocktail Club, Prescription and Curio Parlor, and who also have a cocktail bar in London and a new bar opening soon in New York.

In the same vein as their other venues, the underground bar part of the Beef Club, called The Ballroom, has a speakeasy vibe – accessible currently only by an unmarked black door, the hidden away bar is dimly lit and decorated with dark colours, luxurious velvets and vintage-looking wallpaper.
The concise drinks menu offers eight cocktails (from €12-14), as well as champagne, soft drinks, virgin cocktails and beer from Paris-based brewers Demory. As you would expect from this team, cocktails are interesting – there’s not a Mojito or Cosmopolitan in sight – with options such as the delicious Salers Smash featuring long-forgotten old ladies’ tipple Gentiane mixed with Champagne, Absinthe, sugar, mint and lime. The refreshing yet spicy Cucumber Fumant is also a winner.
The Beef Club restaurant, as its name suggests, serves a steak-based menu. Smaller snacks are also available.
Decorated by Dorothée Meilichzon, the special decoration touch is given by the marvelous lighting systems by DelightFULL.
