The Paris Cocktail Week is an event that brings together the best cocktail proposals at different venues such as Soi, Bastille, Champs Elysées, Haut Marais, Motorgueil, Opera-Madeleine, Republic S-Denis, Saint Germaine… And at this event we were inspired to introduce you some cocktails, both delicious and “chic”.
