Dirty Lemon Bar Interior

Delicious Cocktails and Inspired Mediterranean Small Plates – Dirty Lemon Bar, Paris

What do you get when you mix a chef trained in Michelin starred restaurants, an innovative cocktail bar concept, and the delicious Mediterranean inspired small plates?

Well, you get Paris’ very own Dirty Lemon Bar of course! When she and her staff are not turning dirty lemons into delicious cocktails, Chef and owner Ruba Khoury is imagining up some truly delicious small plates. There are the Mediterranean dishes you know and love, but Chef Khoury has touched on the rustic essence of her ancestral Palestinian palate to introduce her guests to an array of dishes that are sure to please any taste!

 

Its location in the 11eme Arrondissement of Paris also makes it the perfect place to have an after-work apéro. Apart from the cocktails and small plates, the menu features some very solid wine choices and the Parisian favorite BAPBAP beers.

Check out the pics below and next time you’re in the neighborhood be sure to stop in pour un petit apéro!

We bring only the best to our Frenchies! Hotel de Sers is a 5 star boutique hotel located in the chic 8th Arrondisment of Paris. This former private mansion of the Marquis de Sers is just steps away from the Champs Elysee. With views on the Eiffel Tower, and beautiful bar and restaurant area, it was the perfect place to kick off a new year of events in Paris.

It was lovely to see all of your lovely faces in this incredible setting! We enjoyed music by Apéros Frenchies favorite, DJ My Little Pony, who kept the celebratory feeling going all night long. A thank you is of course in order for the team at Hotel De Sers for making sure all of us felt welcome, and keeping that coat check line moving! 
We must, of course, shout out our awesome partners @Lillet and @Ricard for the delicious cocktails! They made sure our glasses were filled all night long and were made deliciously every single time.

Last but certainly not least, we hope you were able to chat with the team from Barnaby! Never ask your friends what they’re up to tonight ever again, instead come prepared with a list of some of the coolest bars and best deals in the city.

Meet the Team: Paris

Fall has just begun, but things are heating up in Paris! We’ve several events coming up at incredible venues across the city. So we decided it was about time you met the team in Paris organizing these awesome events just for you.
Valentina is one of our current team members in Paris, France.
After spending much of her life in Mexico City, Valentina is a fluent Spanish speaker, but her linguistic talents don’t end there. If you spot her at an event come say hello in French and English as well!
As with any startup, it is all hands on deck, and Valentina balances her roles gracefully: You’ll find her behind the camera at events, chatting it up with the bartenders, checking in on the DJ, and generally just making sure all of you are having a good time.
If she spots you at an event, be sure to have your smile ready!
Chances are, if she has her camera in hand she is about to get a great shot of you. From her work at the Cannes Film Festival, her skill photographing still life/culinary/spirits, and her work for us she knows how to get the shot.
Check out her photography from our event at 1k Paris and even more of her work at her personal site.
When she’s not hanging out with all of us at an Afterwork, she’s most likely enjoying an Apéro out in the city with friends. Next time you’re looking for a good spot for a bite to eat be sure to check out Mon Coco in Republique (11eme), you might spot Valentina!

Dream bigger

You’ve already met Clara, another Apéros Frenchies team member.

Although her formal title is Business Development and Marketing, she also writes for this blog! She’s usually not hard to find at any of our events, be sure to stop by the host stand and greet her on your way in.  You’ll for sure catch her hanging around the bar catching up with all of you. If you spot her be sure to say hello! She loves meeting new people and will probably try to introduce you to potential new friends.

Of course, you already know our Co-Founder Eliz who is also currently based in Paris too! Running a company and managing various after-work events can be hectic, but she never breaks a sweat.
We know moving to a new city can be stressful. Even if you’re not new to Paris, walking into a room full of 200 strangers can be a bit nervewracking. The whole Paris team is here to welcome you so don’t be shy, come and say hello!
