Le Mary Celeste

Five years after opening, this oyster bar is as dynamic a player as ever on the international cocktail scene. Located between the Marais and Place de la République, Le Mary Celeste is the place to go after work to decompress and observe how the local hip crowd socialises. The hexagonal counter places the bartenders at the centre of the scene. Josh Fontaine, one of the bar's founders, travels all over France to source natural wines for a list that offers both established and lesser-known labels.
