“Stunning venue but overpriced cocktails”
The famous bar of a thousand stories. The place for discerning Parisians to settle down amongst the deep leather armchairs and discreet conversation and lose themselves in our nightly live jazz.

As you would expect, the service was impeccable. Prim and proper. The salad that my wife had was fresh and refreshing. The hamburger was perfect. Not cheap but worth the experience. It is nice to kick back and be treated special!!!

We went to this bar on a recommendation and it met our expectations, which were high. Let's get this out of the way, it is expensive! That is the point. You receive a luxurious experience (drink, food, and service) in exchange for that price. Many...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
