Alcazar is a bright and wonderfully stylish eatery and nightclub with an interesting history. Located right off the St. Germain-Des-Près on a small but buzzing street and set in a 17th century tennis court, Alcazar was also once home to a notorious transvestite bar and nightclub. The former club next door was the infamous "Rock 'N Roll Circus" nightclub which is known as the last place Jim Morrison was seen partying before he passed away on the same evening. Recently the place has been transformed with a 40 foot high glass roof, trendy decor and a changing series of photographic exhibits. The Mezzanine Bar above the restaurant is adored in Paris, not only for its stiff yet delicious drinks but also for the sounds its DJs mix. Food is French contemporary that includes a nod to the British owners with the "French Style" Fish and Chips. The Tuna Tartare with Apple, Mango and Avocado Is probably the absolute best tuna tartare I have ever had and the Gilt Head Bream Tartare for main dish is to die for. Do not order the St. Marcilin cheese, it comes very dry and not gooey the way St. Marcilin is supposed to be.
