Le Coq’s motto is ‘music, cocktails, people’, but the bar is so much more than the sum of its parts. Cocktails in Paris don’t come any more stylish or refined than the ones Tony Congilario is serving up. The celebrated bartender first made a name for himself at London’s inestimable 69 Colebrooke Row, and now he’s tackling Paris with his 1970s-inspired cocktail den. The menu gives particular focus to lighter, aperitif-style drinks. The Lipstick Rose is one frequent order: a fragrant hit of rose vodka, raspberry syrup, violet syrup and Peychaud’s bitters, the cocktail is decorated with an edible kiss imprint on the side of the glass for good measure. To complete the lightly retro vibe, a soundtrack of Serge Gainsbourg makes for background serenading.
