“A place to revive pleasures of old, all strictly of the legal kind.” Located in the gentrified rue Frochot, in South Pigalle, Lulu White is the latest addition to the new era of cocktail bars in this district, along with the Glass, the Dirty Dick, the Lipstick and L’Isolé (it’s a club as well).

Pigalle, longtime home to racy cabarets and nude shows, an area of seduction and vice, is now the place to follow the latest drinking trends in North Paris.

At Lulu White, you come for the absinthe (order a Green Lady / Lulu White #2) – the favorite drink of Lulu White, a famous New Orleans brothel madam (high-class escort). All in an atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else; perfectly mixing the trendy Pigalle, the early 1920s New Orleans dangerous neighbourhood of Storyville (where Lulu White used to live), the French Belle Epoque and the decadent era of the late 19th century before absinthe, once the “inspiring” drink of writers and poets, became prohibited in France (in 2011, the French government finally voted to lift the ban on the drink).

Lulu White Absinthe Cocktail in South Pigalle, by the tourist in paris

Located in what used to be a creepy bar, it now offers intimate alcoves with comfy seats for a romantic drink or a tasting between insiders.

Don’t forget to meet Matthew, the very experienced British head bartender, who really warms up the mood and takes time with his customers!
