Le Forum is a family owned, long standing Paris institution (since 1931) that leans towards "American cocktail bar" tendencies and is a must stop destination for serious cocktail drinkers in Paris. The menu is extensive with classics, house creations or off the menu choices. They pride themselves on an extensive whisk(e)y selection as well. Open from noon to 1am (2am on weekends) and from Mon - Sat (note: closed during the day on Saturdays) They serve lunch.
Joseph, Xavier, Jerome and the rest of the tight-knit team here sincerely care about taking care of their customers in a upscale, classy setting that remains friendly and unpretentious.
In 2008, they were nominated by the Tales Spirit Awards for the Best Classic Cocktail Bars catagory, and last year they won best cocktail bar in a French competition.
