Endless Summer at CopperBay Cocktail Bar in Paris’ 10ème

HiP Paris blog. Endless summer at Copper Bay Cocktail Bar in the 10th arrondissement. Open, airy, and light-filled space.

With the la rentrée in full steam ahead in Paris, summer has seemingly slipped away over the course of a weekend. The once quiet streets that called for leisurely strolls seem almost forgotten as halcyon days gone by and are once again packed with cars and locals all participating in the city hustle.

What comes with getting back to the daily grind is the re-opening of favorite restaurants, boulangeries, and bars that were also enjoying the stillness of summer, adding a spark to the sudden shift in energy. One bar that will let us hold onto our summer memories is CopperBay, where the ease of the sunny South of France has been brought up to the City of Light.
