The Spirit of L’Absinthe is a cosy cafe’ located in the heart of Primrose Hill.
At first it was L’Absinthe restaurant, a French bistro established in 2007 in Primrose Hill following the dream of his creator, Jean Christophe Slowik, and his trusty companions, Laurent Valentino and chef Christophe Fabre.


In 2010 the bundle of cheeky French couldn’t help his Napoleonic ambitions and lead an expansion… The 3 frogs-eaters took over the restaurant nextdoor shop that for 25 years has been home to the well-know Clare’s Kitchen (now leaving the cookery scenes) and established The Spirit of L’Absinthe.


The Spirit of L’Absinthe springs from the passion of his creators for fantastic food and friendly straightforward service.
