OFF Paris Seine
Paris-Bastille and the Marais
May 11, 2018
A genuine groundbreaker (or river-breaker, as the case may be), OFF is a hotel and bar floating on the Seine River in Paris, and we’ve never seen anything quite like it on our pages.
As it turns out, there’s a good reason for that, and it’s because OFF Paris Seine is, in fact, the first hotel located on water in the entire city of Paris. And what a first effort it is, as the sleek hotel is home to over 50 rooms, four suites, an enchanting interior path, sexy plunge pool, and our personal favorite: a bar pouring fine cocktails. The cocktail bar at OFF Paris Seine serves up sensational tipples (everything from stately classics to signature modern mixes), and the views out to the river complement the gorgeous bar – which is lined with nautical-style wooden plank floors and stylish modern furniture – perfectly. The location of the hotel, floating in between the Left Bank and Right Bank at the foot of the Austerlitz station, allows for both sweeping panoramas of the city and for the hotel to be bathed in the most gorgeous of lights, as the river reflects the sun’s rays up and into the space. While we still can’t believe this concept wasn’t done sooner, we’re thrilled to say that the wait was well worth it.
