Bar Nouveau may be new, but it feels like it’s been around forever. The two-level Art Nouveau-inspired cocktail spot has a menu that’s short and straight to the point, so stop here when you’re overstimulated by all the art, shopping, and crowds in the Marais and don’t want to make any tough decisions. Old-school cocktails and spirits are the focus, whether you sit in the intimate upstairs or moody downstairs den. While you can always walk in, you should go on the earlier side when they open or later in the evening to ensure you get a table.
