Where to have a drink on Saturday evening?

For your most chic meetings, choose the Bristol After dark

bars Paris

No clue, no sign can suggest that the refined Bristol bar, decorated with century-old woodwork, soft sofas and silk carpets, is being transformed after 22 p.m. in a nocturnal sanctuary. However, when Paris prepares to go to sleep, the world of palaces merges with that of the night, and wisdom is transformed into BAD., a.k.a Bristol After Dark. BAD nights will be even more fashionable, more pop, more disco, more crazy. Cocktails create new harmonies, and DJ sets practice the other art form of mixology, brilliantly merging disco, eighties and pop rhythms into the 21st century.
