Where to Drink

7 Wine Bars in Paris to visit on Christmas Eve!

If your vibe this festive season is wine, these spots might just be perfect.

Christmas Eve is probably one of the best times of the year, hanging up the stockings, leaving a beer out for Santa, the ugly sweater contests and the entire family getting together in the spirit of festivities! But we’ve got wine on our minds this time around. 

A nice bottle of red to go with some lovely carved turkey is all we can think about for the night, singing along to our favourite carols. Paris has got some really beautiful spots for wine and vibes, setting a perfect precedent for a Parisian Christmas. So take a walk along some of the city’s wonderfully decorated areas as you visit one of these wine bars on the 24th!

7. Willi’s Wine Bar

Willi’s Wine Bar

A story that began a long time ago, a time when wine bars in Paris were an unheard of prospect, and Rhône wines were deeply unfashionable. With a range of gorgeous wines that they serve, and food that is ‘bistro with a twist’, Willi’s Wine Bar is serious business when it comes to wine. So if that is what you’re looking for this Christmas Eve, keep Willi’s Wine Bar in mind!
