Paris-Opera and Les Halles
May 11, 2018
Ultra stylish café-bar-restaurant opposite the Pompidou Centre, the Beaubourg oozes class and sophistication. You pass through plush red velvet drapes into a lavish room of gorgeous banquettes, bookcases and bare concrete walls. Waiters in Zen-like black suits ease around as if they’ve been plucked out of an Amman Resort and predictably most of them turn out to be more attractive than the regulars. That said, the clientele are a dashing mix of wealthy art-loving tourists and trendy young locals who come for the eye-catching views, fruity cocktails and hip Parisian lounge music a la Hotel Coste. Base yourself on the terrace for best views and watch Parisian life pass you by.
