It’s no secret that Le Bristol in Paris is one of the best hotels in the world. I’ve been sending clients for over 35 years and they are never disappointed. In my mind it was always the epitome of understated chic. After a 3 year and 143 million dollar redo and the addition of a very special club called, not surprisingly Le Bar du Bristol, the palace hotel can easily add cutting-edge as one of its descriptive adjectives.
This new club is a most dramatic addition. It’s modern and classic at the same time but most important, guests need not fear about noise because as always Le Bristol has thought of it all and stellar sound-proofing is perfection. But who cares about that once you’re inside! What you’ll find is a place that attracts a sophisticated mixed group that exemplifies style at any age. This is the cache that everyone wants and frankly, what you would expect at Le Bristol. My only complaint is they should have created this place long ago. After all, who wants to go straight to bed when the convenience of a cool club is just an elevator ride away?
Why is this place so cool? To start with Maxime Hoerth who is Paris’ most talented Mixologist was spirited away from the Four Seasons George V. The head barman, Roman Devaux comes from the Ritz Hotel’s Hemingway Bar. Anywhere these guys go is sure to create a buzz. Together they hold court from the golden colored granite bar with eagle eyes and a knack for entertaining.
The music is electronic sounds mixed in with vintage inspired moods. Just in case you get hungry and want some finger food, the snacks come from Le Bristol’s Michelin 3 star restaurant Epicure. That’s super impressive. A beautiful club in a beautiful hotel with the best drinks in Paris, great music and amazing food. I can now tell my clients that Le Bristol is also a complete luxury “Resort” Hotel in the middle of the world’s most beautiful city. You don’t have to leave. Ever!
