Moonshiner is a lovely Cocktail bar located in the Bastille area of Paris. It is a bar I heard of through a waitress at an Italian restaurant. This bar is something you would definitely not expect, but it is one of the best places for a good cocktail in Paris.
Moonshiner is located in the back of a small Italian restaurant ‘Da Vito’ that claims to serve the best pizza in Paris (I do not disagree much). The bar is undetectable from the outside of the tiny restaurant, only the people who know about this bar will visit it.
To get to the bar, you have to walk through the old refrigerator doors in the back of the restaurant, which will take you to a small corridor with a new set of doors. Open these up and you’ll find yourself in one of the best cocktail bars in Paris.
The bar has a lovely décor which will make you feel as if you traveled in time. Their lovely music and delicious cocktail make you feel completely at ease, and the smoking area is of course filled with locals who like to enjoy their cigarettes with a roof above their heads.
I would definitely recommend giving this place a visit. Don’t know what to choose, I would say opt for the Basil cocktail. It. Is. Amazing.
