Le Coq is a cocktail bar that eschews prohibition décor for Marianne Faithful posters on exposed concrete walls and The Clash on the stereo.
Located on the sleepier side of Place Republique, it is the first serious cocktail bar in the 75010, bringing to Paris the know-how of London’s Tony Conigliaro of 69 Colebrooke Row, also known as the bar with no name.
The list is inventive, drawing heavily on local ingredients and forgotten French liquors, but you can also order the classics or Tony’s famed Dry Martini. The prices are great, the service is great and the music is great. It’s simply a great bar.
Impress fellow hipsters: Back in December, Tony Conigliaro staged a cocktail/food pairing night at Le Dauphin, where ‘the menu included the same cocktail served in two different glasses to highlight the changes their shape make to the nuances of flavour’ (52 Martinis)
