Les Haras Strasbourg

The Agence Jouin Manku-- comprised of design duo Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku-- is known for stunning interiors around the world, including chef Alain Ducasse’s restaurants. So imagine the excitement surrounding the December opening of a new hotel project conceived by the agency in France. Les Haras Strasbourg occupies “the former national stud farm of Strasbourg” which dates from the 18th century and is classified a historic landmark. Hence the chic equestrian design theme found throughout the hotel’s spaces and 55 guest rooms.

Particularly buzzworthy is the brasserie by Marc Haeberlin, the Michelin three-star chef behind the Auberge de l’Ill. Housed in the former Royal Stables, the restaurant is a soaring space with original timber beams and a spiraling grand staircase. Upstairs, Jouin Manku fashioned a yurt out of old saddle leather to create an intimate dining space. On the menu you’ll find classic French cuisine and specialties from Alsace reinterpreted in a modern style. On warm days, the inner courtyard terrace will be an inviting space to eat.
