Glass

This address from the team behind Candelaria brings together cocktails, whiskey and craft beer. You’ll find Brooklyn and Demory beers on tap, plus many more in bottles, including Flying Dog Raging Bitch, Nogne O Porter, Craig Allen “Agent Provacateur” and Left Hand Brewing “Milk Stout”. Cocktails pour forth from both the shaker and the tap, and organic hot dogs and house-made pickles are there to soak it all up. Plenty of press and a rotating lineup of DJs mean that the place is always packed. Arrive early or risk being turned away at the door.

Reviews of interest

Forest Collins (2013) “Taking a decidedly more divey detour, Glass brought something fresh and feisty to last year’s drinking scene. With a creatively brut décor, lower prices and tongue-in-cheek offerings –cocktails on tap and shot-and-beer pairings–, it’s no wonder they quickly became a favorite among the city’s scenesters. Quiet evenings provide the perfect opportunity to sample their 100% organic beef hotdogs with homemade buns or a selection of tangy pickled veggies. On busy nights a party crowds packs onto the tiny dance floor to bump and grind to the loud music.”

GoGo Paris (2012) “This new bar from the crew behind Candelaria has opened in an old bar à hôtesse, the Soho Club, in the fantastically neon Rue Frochot at Pigalle, sandwiched between a sex shop and the Fox Club. Open every day from 7pm-2am, the bar is specialised in beer and hotdogs, proposing organic pure-beef dogs from Rostain on freshly baked buns (5-7€).”

Time Out (2013) “Drinks-wise, we recommend the Tattoo You (mezcal, ginger, grapefruit, lime and beer), and the marvellously named beer BrewDog Trashy Blonde. If you’re up for a Boilermaker, make sure you line your stomach with a hot dog first, then try the Patti & Robert (a shot of Jim Beam followed by a Brooklyn East Indian Pale Ale), or a Lila & Santana (El Jimador Reposado tequila ending and a Mexican Modelo Especial).”

  1. We went to Glass on Saturday around 8:30 and got the last 2 seats in the place. Note that from the outside it is completely black and silent (it almost seems closed) while inside it’s hopping. I *loved* the hot dogs and buns and also my 3-sip 11€ margaritas. My advice if you’re over 30 is to go early (closer to 7); you will start to feel old very fast. If you don’t want to break the bank, get the plain dogs for 5€ which come with ketchup and mustard; I didn’t find the ones with 3 wisps of kraut or pico de gallo to be worth the 2€ extra. And stick to beer. Note: we ate 5 hot dogs between us, so plan on at least 2 per person. I would definitely go back (early) just for the dogs.
