Fans of Buddha Bar will be pleased to learn that Paris will soon have its very own Buddha-Bar Hotel in addition to the popular restaurant. George V Entertainment-- which commands an empire of 30 restaurants, spas, and hotels around the globe-- has announced an opening date of June 3, 2013 for Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris. After Prague and Budapest, this will be the third hotel for the brand, and it’s aiming for a five-star rating.
Located at 4 rue d’Anjou near the Place de la Madeleine in the 8th arrondissement, the hotel-- housed in a restored 18th century mansion--- will have 56 Asian-inspired guestrooms including 21 suites. True to the Buddha Bar concept, the hotel will have a happening restaurant and lounge where a DJ spins tracks til the wee hours of the morning. We hear there will also be a small spa with a hammam and fitness center, and if it’s anything like the Buddha Bar Spa in the Hilton Hotel in Evian-les-Bains, we’re getting in line now.
