Verjus Bar à Vins
47, rue de Montpensier, 75001
01 42 97 54 40
M° Pyramides
Mon-Fri. 30-40€

The American owners of this new wine and whisky bar ran a successful supperclub in Paris before going legit at the end of last year. Pop in for small plates of milk-fried chicken, celeriac ravioli with dan-dan sauce, and shoestring fries with togarashi and ketchup.

Spring Boutique
6 rue Bailleul, 75001
01 58 62 44 30
M° Louvre-Rivoli

Not a wine bar as such (it closes at 10pm), this little offshoot of Daniel Rose’s gastronomic restaurant, Spring, is a casual space for wine-tasting – try the Spring Drink sampler, €10 – with accompanying hams, cheeses and so on if you’re peckish.

Frenchie Bar à Vins
5 rue du Nil, 75002
01 40 39 96 19
M° Sentier

Good luck getting a table at Gregory Marchand’s tiny néo-bistrot Frenchie – it’s more or less hopeless. His new wine bar over the road is a good, supremely relaxed place to console yourself with a glass of low-intervention wine and a plate of excellent terroirs-y food.

La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels

09 54 90 20 20
M° Odeon
Mon-Sun. 20-30€

Part-owned by one of Paris’s biggest Bordeaux dealers, this is no place to try modish vins naturs – rather dip into an interesting global selection by the glass. Great atmosphere, attractive loungey decor, so-so food (stick with the pata negra ham).
