This property consisting of a former butcher's shop and a series of private basements has been transformed into a trendy bar boasting highly original decor. The rather amazing bourgeois Baroque style of the place plays on colours, materials and eclecticism, with antique furniture, multicoloured pillars, scarlet red sofas and a 19th-Century chandelier all coming together to create the most explosive surroundings. But that's not all ? you will also receive the warmest of welcomes here. Just like the decor, the cocktail menu (which includes a wonderful champagne mojito) will also have your jaw dropping. Fear not, though, as wine-lovers are also well catered-for here, and the hot chocolate served in the afternoons is simply divine.

Although it is rather discreet from the outside, the 138 is a preferred spot in the City of Light.© Julien Ferret / EASYVOYAGE
