Night clubbing,  LES BAINS

The famous Parisian club returns to life after an in-depth restoration and a (partial) reconversion to luxury hotel

PARIS

Paris recovers an unforgettable fragment of its history: the Les Bains nightclub reopens, after four years of intensive restructuring. This locale was first launched in 1885 by the Guerbois family, designed by the famous architect Eugène Ewald, as an ultra-fashionable bathhouse, frequented by Marcel Proust among others. A century later it had become an exclusive light-night clubbing icon: during the crazy eighties and the naughty nineties it was a mecca for stars and would-be’s, attracting the most transgressive and spotlight-hungry international artistes, from Andy Warhol to Grace Jones, David Bowie to Robert de Niro, and the Sex Pistols to the Rolling Stones. In 2011 it closed and now it finally reopens, owned by the film director and producer Jean-Pierre Marois. The historic parts have been beautifully restored and a series of new spaces and functions added: 39 elegantly furnished bedrooms, a bar that looks like something from a David Lynch film, a restaurant run by an outstanding couple (Lars Krueger as Artistic Director, with chef Michael Riss in the kitchen), a wellbeing centre and a boutique. A new experience for nostalgics!

 

Parigi riconquista un pezzo di storia dal valore inestimabile: Les Bains riapre, dopo quattro anni di intensi lavori di ristrutturazione. Il locale, fondato nel 1885 dalla famiglia Guerbois e costruito dal famoso architetto Eugène Ewald, ha rappresentato una pietra miliare nella storia del costume degli anni Ottanta e Novanta: club esclusivo e mecca delle star, tra le sue pareti si sono avvicendati i nomi più trasgressivi del panorama artistico di quegli anni, da Andy Warhol a Grace Jones, da David Bowie a Robert de Niro, dai Sex Pistols ai Rolling Stones. Costretto a chiudere nel 2011, oggi il complesso riapre per iniziativa del regista Jean-Pierre Marois. Al restauro delle parti storiche si affiancano nuovi locali per nuove funzioni: 39 camere elegantemente arredate, un bar degno di un set di David Lynch, un ristorante diretto da una coppia d’eccezione (Lars Krueger alla direzione artistica e lo chef Michael Riss ai fornelli), un centro benessere e una boutique. Un’esperienza tutta nuova per inguaribili nostalgici!
