After the success of Le Syndicat, mixologists Sullivan Doh and Romain Le Mouëllic are still fighting the good fight and opened La Commune in Belleville, in November of 2016. You’ll find the same classy ambiance, with a reggae soundtrack this time around: waxed concrete walls, a veranda with undulating plastic, a green marble bar, brass chairs…. It’s always crowded, thanks to the shared punch bowls, the house specialty. In these superb silver bowls (specially created for the bar), Sullivan whips up nine extraterrestrial recipes with carefully chosen ingredients and French liqueurs, like the Planteur made with homemade Falernum syrup, lemon, fennel, mint, cucumber, sparkling water, egg white, 30&40 liqueur and Calvados (€10 per person). Otherwise, for solo drinkers, there’s a surprising Barattage de la mer de lait (€13), a sweet and spicy combo of milk, green tea, clove, cinnamon, coriander, rum, absinthe and French whiskey. And don’t forget about the homemade iced tea for €5! // A.B.
