Hello!

I am going for the first time to Paris next week over Valentines Day.
I have been studying this board and taking notes!
like Max Beckmann I love love champagne and plan to indulge~
Do you know of any wine bars that are particularly well stocked and specialize in this fantastic libation?
I hope to learn the many facets of this exquisite treat
To newly explore how it's qualities are affected by varying combination

Thank You,
J e n

does the lack of response mean that is a silly question?
perhaps all wine bars there should have a broad selection of champagne...
if that is the case then what are your recommendations
Thank you and I reserved at Atelier Joel Robuchon for monday the 12th.
Michael anthony from Blue Hill made me this list of restaurant recommendations.
I thought you all would be interested.

Guy Savoy

Expensive:

well, it's not a silly question, but as for me, I would rather drink champagne in the bar of a palace, for instance the Ritz or the Crillon, than in a wine bar.. Very Happy

Thank you for the tip.
I am actually looking to drink most of my champagne on Valentines <3
What are your thoughts on celebrating Valentine's Day in Paris.
(Isn't that an adorable question!)
I tried to get into Atelier Robuchon that eveing but it was totally busy.
So I think I would rather save all my energy for sweets and champagne anyway...

Have a wonderful time Jen.

There used to be a place like that in the 9th but I imagine it didn't work well because it went out of business. The Ritz however has a champagne bar (38 rue Cambon) -- expect pricy drinks!

And if you want to buy champagne to drink in your hotel room, there is a store in the marais that is specialized in bubbles: it is called Cave à Bulles at 45 rue de Quincampoix in the 4th.
