Luxury hotel bars in Paris

For a drink in a unique setting, step into the bar of a Parisian hotel

With their exceptional setting and impeccable service, the bars of top hotels are dream places to spend pleasant moments. In 5-star palaces, arty hotels and new boutique hotels, bars have become places that attract other customers. In the evening, DJs liven up numerous bars that turn into clubs for the occasion.

Every Parisian grand palace has its own bar, sometimes with its name and a particular type of atmosphere. They offer a varied list of cocktails, concocted onsite by talented bartenders, and sometimes light and original snacks.

At the Meurice, the Bar 228 plunges you into a decor worthy of the 18th century with frescoes, leather armchairs and indirect lighting.

Equally chic and stylish is the Bar 8 at the Mandarin Oriental with has an imposing central bar. On the walls, jewellery in Lalique crystal is dazzling to the eye.

With an Art Deco style influenced by the 1930s, the new bar of the Hôtel Napoléon Le 1807 unveils a modern and hushed atmosphere in which local customers and passing guests mingle.

After midnight, the Bar at the Four Seasons George V turns into a club with dancing and DJ sets.

New cocktails, bar in aluminium, central table, collection of lamps and chandeliers: the décor at the Bar Long, at the Royal Monceau is original and stunning.

To decorate these exceptional places, hotels call on the services of great designers. Hotel bars then become trendy with among others Philippe Starck for the Island Bar at Mama Shelter.

Recent hotels also count on bars to attract younger clients, as at the bar O at the Hôtel O designed by Ora Ito.
