- L’Apothicaire (initially at 13, rue de ratte, in Montpellier) has moved and got a new name ! Now it’s at 8 rue du Pila Saint Gély and called “Cabinet de l’Apothicaire”. The Apothecary's bar has a remedy for every problem with original concoctions with medicinal virtues (de-stressing, detoxifying, etc.).
- Le Rhum Runner appeals to rum lovers in a cosy atmosphere (12, rue Jules Latreilhe) while the Willie Carter Shape (3, rue Collot) cultivates the mood of clandestine bars of the time of the American prohibition.
There are two great addresses in the Beaux-Arts district for exceptional cocktails:
- By Coss Bar (5, rue Belmont) and its home-made cocktails which are original, and full of character,
- and the surprising Le Parfum (55, rue de la Cavalerie), where Sacha Molodskikh's cocktails are real gastronomic creations !
And of course, we can’t mention cocktails in Montpellier without treating ourselves to a creation from Papa Doble (6, rue du petit Scel), near the Arc de Triomphe. It's one of the best cocktail bars in the world according to the very serious ranking by ‘Drink International Magazine’! The manager and owner, Julien Escot, author of several cocktail books, was even named ‘Best barman in the world’ by this same magazine and won the world cocktail championships at the Havana Club in 2012.
