Le Bristol Paris Unveils Renovated Bar

Le Bristol Paris, barExciting news from the City of Light: Le Bristol Paris has officially opened the Bristol Bar, conceived by award-winning architect Pierre-Yves Rochon and Maja Oetker. The renovated bar is the crowning achievement of a large-scale renovation project that included the spa, Michelin-starred restaurant, and suites. (For details about this 110 million euro project, see our first-hand review in the March 2012 issue of the magazine.)

The decoration is classic and decidedly modern; the Versailles oak parquet and 100-year-old rare pine paneling evoke the style of an English club. Artisanal workshops were commissioned to make the furniture: wingback chairs, English armchairs in red or blue leather (the Petworth Chair), Giacometti stools by Porta Romana covered in leopard print silk by Le Manach. Also commissioned by the hotel: a wall mural by French artist Thierry Bruet, which complements the centuries-old Aubusson tapestery which hangs on the wall. Rare bottles and exclusive cocktails, like the Bristol Old Fashioned No. 1,  are served by Head Barman Maxime Hoerth and Roman Devaux (formerly at the Bar Hemingway at the now-closed Ritz Paris).

Managed by Edgar Vaudeville, the bar is open from 5 pm to 2 am, seven days a week. International DJs spin tracks on Thursday-Saturday nights, starting at 9:30 pm. For more information about Le Bristol Paris—located at 112 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré- visit www.lebristolparis.com.
