Paris' most blossoming wine bars to check out this upcoming season

With current temperatures mostly sticking between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius, we all hope to soon bid adieu to the chill of winter and welcome the much-needed warmth of spring. When the city's temperatures begin to rise again, so will the vibrant wine scene. And discerning wine enthusiasts are seeking out the perfect spots to indulge in exquisite wines and delightful ambiances. From ice cream in Oberkampf to tapas in Saint-Germain, embark on a journey through the enchanting streets of Paris to uncover the crème de la crème of wine bars this spring.



Address: 10 Rue du Grand Prieuré, 75011

Open: Tuesday - Sunday 16:00-23:00

Grab a glass of wine and some ice cream, and take a seat outside on the street! Folderol is the best place you can find yourself during a hot summer day. It is the most enjoyable spot to get a refreshing glass of natural wine while enjoying delicious ice cream served in a metal cup! Their ice cream menu has over 100 homemade flavors, ranging from strawberry shortcake to peanut butter crunch to olive oil! Believe it or not, the olive oil flavor is quite interesting, so don't write it off just yet. During the warmer months, the lines can get pretty long as soon as they open, so anticipate a wait time. Folderol is the perfect way to relax during one of Paris' hot summer evenings.



Address: 39 Rue des Petites Écuries, 75010

Deviant is located in the 10th arrondissement, on a small and quiet street. Deviant is not only a wine bar, though, they also offer tasty cocktails. During the spring and summer, they have outdoor seating on their terrace, making it a cozy and tranquil experience. Their food menu consists of various plates to choose from, many intended to share. The dimly lit atmosphere with beautifully dripped candles and the vibrant ambiance provided by the staff allows for a delightful night out with friends. Although the menu may be selective, it is easy to read, and the dishes are delicious.


L'Avant Comptoir du Marché

Address: 14 Rue Lobineau, 75006

Open: Tuesday - Sunday 12:00-23:00

L'Avant Comptoir du Marché is a lively, buzzing wine bar in Saint-Germain-des-pres on a backstreet near Rue Princesse. You will struggle to find an open seat on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night, so take whatever you can get your hands on! This wine bar attracts mainly individuals in their twenties or early thirties, although anyone is welcome! The incredibly lively, loud atmosphere makes it almost difficult to hear the Spanish music, but it still is a great place to go and mingle. This bar brings Spanish culture to us, serving many different delicious tapas and charcuteries. I would recommend the ham and cheese croquetas; they are the best I have found in Paris. 



Address: 25 Rue Saint-Sébastien, 75011

Open: Everyday 18:30-02:00

If you fancy the likes of old records and tasty wine, Bambino is the place for you. Located in the 11th arrondissement, Bambino offers delicious cocktails to enjoy while listening to some of their vinyl records. They also have a variety of food dishes ranging from pizzas to scallops to pigeon feet! On the weekends, they have a DJ set to offer some extra vibrant energy. Personally, I love their orange wine, as well as their "Aglio y Olio." Bambino has no outdoor terrace, which should not stop you from checking out their cozy and cool atmosphere. They draw inspiration from cities all over the globe, from Tokyo to New York, to London, to Tel Aviv; the ambiance offered at Bambino is unlike anything else you will find in Paris.  


Lolo Cave a Manger 

Address: 12 Rue de Châteaudun, 75009 Paris

Open: Monday - Saturday 12:00-14:00 and 19:00-23:30

Located in the 9th arrondissement, Lolo provides a lively, fun ambiance with a red interior. Enjoy one of their tasty natural wines inside or on their nicely laid-out terrace. At night, the red lights on the interior blaze through, making it even more of an enjoyable experience. Their food menu consists of meats, seafood, and desserts, which are all on the smaller side, so I recommend sharing a few plates between friends. Lolo gets pretty busy on the weekends, making it a good opportunity for all you singles to mingle! 

Whether you are a seasoned connoisseur seeking the most exquisite wine or simply a lover of life's finer things seeking an aesthetic adventure, these bars are perfect for you. Let this be a guide and hopefully lead you to your new favorite spot!
