I found Castor mentioned online when researching bars near the hotel. It really is a 'secret bar' with no signage and you wouldn't know by walking past.
The cocktail menu is different to the usual cocktails offered. All Euro14 and all totally handmade in front of you.
A popular bar.

Excellent Cocktail Bar! Staff were great and super polite! Best cocktail I have had in a long time.

Ignore what a lot of the comments say about staff being rude to “English” people (this probably due to individuals speaking English rather than trying to learn and speak a bit of French when abroad). Unsurprising.

Would go back!

I saw reviews for this on google and it was near the restaurant we had just celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday at. It looked cool and I love the idea of a speakeasy. However... The bouncer i.e. the terribly impolite man at the door, was outright awful and made us feel very unwelcome. He was playing on his phone, so I imagine the unwelcome interruption of patrons must have ruined that for him. The bar didn’t look crazily busy as it was a weeknight, so I have no idea why he had to be so rude.

I’ve since read in other reviews that there is a bouncer who is exceptionally unpleasant to English people. I strongly recommend this man is reprimanded, as he is losing the club business. Thankfully we found a much nicer bar to go to nearby, where the staff were delightful.

This was my 2nd time this year but this time with friends.

After trying many of the other recognised speakeasy style bars in Paris me and my friends agreed that castor definately made the best tasting and most balanced cocktails. Love this place.

Small, intimate bar with great music. Have the Aye Aye Captain! Delicious! The bartender was friendly and explained how to drink the lovely concoction.

Visited this bar on a recent visit to Paris. Stepping through the door was like walking into a different world. A small cosy bar, velvet seats built in to the walls and 50's American rock music in the background. The cocktails were bespoke and totally different to ones available in most bars. Definitely worth a visit.

Staff were an absolute pleasure - they accommodated our requests and were very friendly and interactive.

Venue is relaxed and very intresting - the music, lighting and overall mood is very 'grown up' and classy. Lovely venue

Drinks were absolutely top end and again for a more mature pallete.

Highly recommended

8pm Friday night. We went to this cosy bar.. but tricky to find but it's Castor Club after all. It was pretty packed. The bar is small and narrow with little velvet type seats on the side. I sat there comfortably (I'm small) my husband much taller was not very comfortable. The drinks were delicious. The waiter kind and friendly. Next time hope to sit at the bar.

This small bar has an off putting and arbitrary bouncer at the door. He seems to operate on an I like your face or I dont like your face basis . The barman seems creative but the charges are disproportionately high for that . It is a very expensive place. the atmosphere inside is pleasant. The bar hostess is very helpful

you can't even say that it was 'bad service,' it was much worse.

I brought a friend to this bar at 2:00am on a Saturday night, and there was maybe 5 others there. I live in the area and have been a few times before. My friend ordered quickly but I was still deciding, and the bartender with glasses told me I'd have to order something. I said I would, that I was just still deciding, and he argued that it's the point of a bar to order something, and I wouldn't be able to stay unless I ordered something (again, it was nearly empty). We hadn't even been there three minutes. I laughed thinking he was joking, and repeated that I was still looking over the menu and he responds, "well I'm going to stand here and watch you until you decide." And he did, he stood there and stared at me.

He purposely intimidated me for no reason. I am still in shock and very confused as to how he thought that was appropriate. No one should be treated like that, especially when i'm paying for a service. I've tried contacting the bar about this experience multiple times, but they didn't care to respond.
