One of the top spots on the Parisian speakeasy map! Located near place de la Republique and Le Marais District, La Mezcaleria Bar Clandestino is an underground, secret bar with an intimate atmosphere and a latino taste, hidden in the back room of 1K Hotel and restaurant. Perfect for a romantic date.

At the hidden door to the bar, inside the hotel kitchen, visitors are greeted by an intimidating Lucha Libre wrestler wearing his legendary mask. Inside, there are illuminated statues of the Virgin Mary, a large hanging cross monument and colourful skulls, a decor that will instantly transport you to a Mexican enclave, with a distinct, warm and intimate atmosphere.

The 1K Hotel embraces South-American culture and is now reviving the speakeasy and illicit bar providing alcoholic drinks trend, like in the 1920s Prohibition era. At the very heart of the establishment, there is a hidden alcove open only to those in the know, where Mezcal is the beverage of choice for the entire cocktail list. Made by a professional and very welcome bartender (watch the video).

What is Mescal? The “Elixir of the gods“. Mescal is an alcoholic drink straight from the high, dry desert areas of Mexico, made by fermenting and distilling agave juice. Known as the “forefather of tequila“, its smoky flavour and uplifting effects have been enjoyed for generations. It is excellent when paired with tart or spicy flavours, making for some unusual, refreshing cocktails (12 to 13 euros).
