This hidden bar is the inspiration of two women: Tarja Visan, one of the creators of the Buddha Bar Paris and Mareva Essia, chairwoman of the group Tigre Blanc Paris. Together, they have combined their talents to create a place that resembles them — a cocktail bar with English and American music and atmosphere.
Furniture is signed Ileana Orzac (who has furnished other hip spots in Paris like the Perchoir), and the glassware sourced from around the globe. To access and discover the secrets of this enigmatic place (by appointment only), you must find the password on the social networks. The bar makes its debut with a surprising winter cocktail menu including the signature drink, ‘Promenons-Nous Dans Les Bois’ and its vodka base infused with mushrooms.
The Secret 8 is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 7pm to 2am and is available for private hire at the same times for up to 25 people. What’s more, the Buddha Bar Paris also has 3 floors set around a giant statue of Buddha, and 4 spaces for private hire: the Salle Dorée (200 people in cocktail format), the Salle Rouge (200 people), the Salon Rouge (70 people) as well as the Mezzanine (250 people). A place with a unique character and aesthetics.
