Glass – it feels pretentious to just write that – is found in the trendy district of Pigalle in northern Paris. Sandwiched between the Fox Club and a sex shop, it makes every effort to appear the hipster hotspot.
The bar itself is quite cramped, with only a small dancefloor for when the current DJ hits form. Cracked mirrors, weak lighting and disco balls complete the hipster image.
But what sets this little bar apart is the quality and variety of its drinks. They serve Brooklyn IPA on tap, and they have a number of drinks with crazy names including Flying Dog Raging Bitch and BrewDog Trashy Blonde. Glass’s redemption is complete, however, once you try one of their homemade hotdogs. In terms of food, hotdogs and pickles are all that they offer, but when they’re this good, you don’t really need anything else.
