Where To Be In Paris When It Pours

Le Dôme de Villiers

Le Dôme de Villiers

The rain poured down outside as the cocktails slipped down inside. Le Dôme de Villiers is an excellent place to escape the rain or anything else for that matter. Located in the chic 17th Arrondissement of Paris, there is always a good crowd enjoying a warm welcome at Le Dôme, it’s worth a visit just for the ambiance. The bar enjoys an end of terrace aspect, jutting out into the market square, with open terraces on three sides. It is a pretty cool place to sit, smile and watch Parisians pass by. Once a tobacco shop the bar now boasts a ‘Boudoir’ styled room, a bakery and a good selection of cocktails.

On the list you will find a few of the usual suspects, Mojitos and Mai Tais but with some subtle house variations and done very, very well. Rum is a favourite of mine but it was time to go with a seasonal mix and the Summertime, gin, Aperol, sirup de vanilla and a touch of lemon juice, was a light and interesting mix of flavours. A quick switch of spirits and my second choice was pure indulgence, the Sweet Tini – vodka, Ginger of the Indies liqueur, nectar d’abricot and miel – a gorgeous way to start any evening.
