Baby, it's cold outside...but it's nice and warm at the bar of L'Hotel, a sumptuous 19th century hotel with a Jacques Garcia designed decor, on the left bank in Paris. The book-lined, velvet-chaired, low-lit ground floor bar is a great place to cosy up for a warming afternoon tea or a romantic evening drink.
What's more, the hotel's historic charm is authentic with literary legends Oscar Wilde and Jorge Luis Borges both having stayed here. If it was good enough for them, it's good enough for us.
13 rue des Beaux-Arts, 75006 Paris
Bar open until 1am daily
