Nowadays, Wine bars in Paris (bar à vin in French) are very common and trendy, nevertheless some places can be disappointing (bad wine, no ambiance etc.). We have shortlisted for you our 3 preferred wine bars in Paris: 36 Corneil, L’Ivress and L’Ebéniste du vin. These 3 good places should please you.
First wine bar: the 36 Corneil in the 9th district (arrondissement) of Paris
This wine bar (bar à vin) is very nice and located between 2 subway stations: Cadet (line 7) and Anvers (line 2). Atmosphere is great in this place which is “simple” and cozy thanks to warm settings and notably a nice stone wall and mosaic tiles (like the typical Parisian bars in the beginning of 20th century).
Hence, 36 Corneil is an authentic Parisian wine bar with “nostalgic settings and without frills! Served food is mainly « French tapas » that is to say plates of French charcuterie and cheeses and some are more “original” (escargot etc.), food is simple but very good.
