XThis is my go-to late-night bar for its Parisian spirit. You won’t find a mixol­o­gist-cu­rated cock­tail menu in this ec­cen­tric Marais spot, but your drinks (a glass of wine, a gen­er­ous G & T) will be served with gusto. The crowd is a mix of chatty lo­cals, fash­ion types and cu­ri­ous vis­i­tors. There’s of­ten live mu­sic around the pi­ano, ei­ther from pro­fes­sion­als or pa­trons. You’ll have sto­ries to tell after­wards.

55 Rue des Ar­chives, Paris; 0033 142 774140; lecon­netable.net bars but you can’t do bet­ter than Na­tive for some­thing unique. The bar flies the flag for all things lo­cal. From lo­cally for­aged pink jas­mine blos­soms, Thai rum and In­dian whisky to lo­cal weaver ants, owner Vi­jay Mu­daliar is out to win fans with his un­likely pair­ings of Asian flavours. Part of the plea­sure of drink­ing here, for me, is savour­ing its rus­tic wood-heavy set­ting on the up­per storey of a con­ser­va­tion shop house. It’s hard to find but worth the ef­fort.
