First Champagne Bar in Paris

Eileen Callahan of Champagne Travels visits Le'dokhans hotel in Paris, FranceI was traveling the world, visiting glamorous hotels, sipping decadent champagne. Yep, that’s my life. I have so many favorite locations that I go back to repeatedly, but I am constantly on the lookout for that new hidden gem, that diamond in the rough. I’ve been traveling to Paris for over 20 years, so naturally, I have numerous haunts that I love to visit regularly. Now that I live here, stumbling across a new hotel or bar is just as exciting, and it’s a joy to plan my weekly outings each Monday.

This week’s champagne “outing” was one of my favorites. I had heard about it before, but it had never popped up at the top of my list.

This cute, quaint, elegant yet unpretentious champagne parlor is everything you might expect.

I fancied a flight that evening, which allowed me to learn about a small boutique champagne house. Through tastings, you can experience lesser-known family vineyards.

Check if one of the jazz quartets is playing on the night you visit. Nothing beats relaxing with a loved one and enjoying some bubbles accompanied by a great musical beat.

This champagne first is a must-visit in Paris–see you at Le Dokhan’s!
