Sip a fine wine or quaff a foaming flagon of beer
Simply cross the street from the Hotel Fabric to discover one of the best wine cellars cum restaurants in Paris. In Le Verre Volé (The Stolen Glass) wines from all regions of France and producers large and small, plus independent wineries in the Ile de France, are all awaiting your pleasure and promising a treat for your taste buds. Simple, traditional and very welcoming, Le Verre Volé boasts a typically charming Oberkampf ambience. We recommend that you visit during the regularly organised tastings. A few blocks away, in the new cellar, Soif d’Ailleurs, you can enjoy a world tour via around 200 different and original wines from 5 continents in a space designed specifically and uniquely for wine tastings. Free tastings are available in this beautifully appointed location that has a light touch of modernity and a friendly welcome, especially from the sommelier at the bar. However, should you be in the mood for a cold glass of foaming beer, then pop back to the Hotel Fabric where you can savour a fine ale from the Brasserie Nouvelle Gallia, a microbrewery established in 1879, where the 19th century tradition of Parisian brewing is still carried on.
