You can’t talk about the craft cocktail scene in Paris without mentioning ECC. Opened in 2007, it paved the way for an entire movement (and built its own imperial empire from London to New York) that grew to understand the cocktail as more than just a glass of haphazardly mixed bottom-shelf liquors. Drinks range from riffs on classics to complicated mixtures with house-made tinctures, bitters and infusions. Today, there are very few speakeasy-themed bars in Paris, and this remains the original.
