Chouchou – April
Calling all Epicureans, the Hôtel Chouchou opens in April. This 4-star with 63 rooms and suites in the Opéra district seeks to be the new heartland for bon vivants. The rooms are decorated in the style of a Parisian apartment, subtly mixing parquet flooring, velvet, checked earthenware and the iconic striped (sailor) jersey. For meals, a ‘food market – guinguette bar’ offers food to eat on the premises or take away. Choose ‘surf’ or ‘turf’: ‘La Mer à Boire’ for oysters from Brittany, and ‘La Grande Bouffe’ with meat options from French regions. 3 flexible rooms are available for private hire and host up to 40 people.
Musée Cernuschi – March
Hone your knowledge of Asian arts by discovering the Cernuschi museum’s new layout for visitors! After almost a year of work, the museum has extended its important collections of Chinese archaeology to take account of modernity and other cultures such as Korean, Japanese or Vietnamese. A new space dedicated to Henri Cernuschi's personal collection and a room showing Asian paintings have also been created. Finally, mediation has been rethought to integrate digital devices into the visit to enrich the visitor experience.
Le Bœuf sur le Toit
The famous restaurant Bœuf sur le Toit has taken on a new lease of life with Moma Group! This resolutely art deco music-hall restaurant from 1922 – a former meeting place for many artists – unveils new interior decoration highlighting its most glorious years. On the menu, you will find dishes from the upscale brasserie, with a great choice of seafood. For the programme of musical events alternating jazz concerts and improvised jam sessions, the group is partnering with Patrick Bruel and agent Valérie Boukobza. The restaurant space (90 places), the bar (20 places), the music hall (80 places) and the mezzanine (40 places) are available for private hire, as is the entire restaurant (up to 150 people) for a cocktail reception.
Hard Rock Café – April
The Hard Rock Café of Paris has been revamped to welcome events in a more edgy setting! Much more than just a restaurant, the Hard Rock Café is also a unique type of events venue. With a capacity to host up to 400 people in cocktail reception configuration (800 m²), it also offers several more intimate areas such as the mezzanine (110 people seated), the terrace (32 people) or the Jimmy Hendrix VIP lounge (40 people). The resolutely rock vibe of the 70s is still there, but the interiors are lighter and airier and the decor more pared down than before. Many activities are available à la carte such as private rock concerts, karaoke sessions or mixology workshops.
La Samaritaine Paris Pont Neuf
Renamed ‘La Samaritaine Paris Pont Neuf’ by the LVMH group, (now the owners), this iconic Parisian institution reopens its doors after a period of 15 years and a huge renovation project to celebrate its 150th anniversary!
