Les Bains Paris, The Cities Most Notorious Bathhouse, Reopens!

Once a private bathhouse, a hotspot for the Bohemians of the Belle Époque and a famed nightclub, Les Bains returns to the Paris social scene as a hotel and bar in the historic 3rd arrondissment. In 1978, this unique place transformed clubbing into an art and rapidly became a cultural phenomenon. Les Bains was the center of fashion, media, show business and arts for the likes of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Naomi Campbell, Bono, Prince, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and more.  The property has been revitalized, and is now the latest hot spot in Paris.

The newly renovated space, under the same name, is both a homage to the heritage of its storied past, and a bold new take on Parisian hospitality. Thanks to the outstanding joint work of the architects and designers Vincent Bastie, Tristan Auer, and Denis Montel, the property shines as a vibrant, connected, international clubhouse and hotel, which includes a restaurant, bars, a private lounge, a club, guest rooms, and suites.

Les Bains iconic “La Salle à Manger” restaurant is now characterized by neo-brasserie chic – most notably in the form of Philippe Starck’s original 1978 black-and-white-checkered dance-floor. The pixelated objet d’art has been fully restored, where nearly two million tiles have been intricately hand-laid.

Les Bains’ 39 spacious rooms and suites are each stamped with their own unique personality. Custom-crafted furniture sits amongst white marble, precious woods, Gainsbourienne carpets and replica sofas from Andy Warhol’s Factory. A sleek and sophisticated color palette of grey, white and black unites the rooms, while the hotel’s artistic essence is reflected by a constantly rotating curation of art.
