Café Moderne, Paris

19 Rue Keller, Paris

by James Wilkinson

Star barman Mido Ahmed Yahi’s Café Moderne in the Bastille looks like a standard Parisien bistro at first glance, until you step inside and find one of the city’s best cocktail lists (Mido came third globally in the 2014 World Class competition), back bars and levels of service.

Alongside your whiskey sour, order a plate of meatballs, some cheesecake and then any cocktail Mido would like to make.
