A table in Paris

Even in Paris, or maybe especially in Paris, you can be mired in indecision when it comes to booking dinner. So few days in the week.. so many restaurants!

But if you ran the ‘best wine bar in Paris’ you’d know just where to go, depending on your mood, right? Right. Oliver Magny of O Chateau Wine Bar (recently voted ‘best in Paris’ by Bonjour Paris) does indeed have just such a little list. He agreed to share it with us… (below).

And by the way, his wine bar is only five minutes from the Louvre; call in to experience what Time Magazine described as ‘the most irreverent wine-tasting in Paris.‘

O Chateau is at 68, rue Jean Jacques Rousseau – 75001 Paris. Telephone‐ +33 (0)1 44 739 780. It’s open every day for wine tastings. Book online at www.o-chateau.com.
The bar opens at 4PM – and the restaurant at 7PM -­ Monday through Saturday.
