Once a famous bathhouse in the late 1800s and a hotspot nightclub in the late 1900s, Les Bains today is much more than a luxury hotel. Located at 7 Rue du Bourg l’Abbé the property is housed in a Haussmannian masterpiece in Paris’ historic third arrondissement amid a trove of atmospheric streets and architectural splendors. Thanks to the outstanding work of the architects and designers Vincent Bastie, Tristan Auer, and Denis Montel, Les Bains now shines as a vibrant and connected sociocultural melting pot that comprises a restaurant, a bar, a private lounge, a club/concert venue, a concept store/art gallery, and 39 guest rooms, including a top-floor penthouse.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
“Looking for a hotel is like looking for a book to adapt into a screenplay, and finding the right architect is like choosing the director”, so says the filmmaker-turned-Original Jean-Pierre Marois. Marois’ family has owned the building that houses Les Bains since the 1960s, and saw its golden years as a hangout for the international celebrity elite of the 1980s and 1990s. After a successful career in movie-making, Marois took it upon himself to breathe new life into the iconic structure.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Although strictly Haussmannian, the building that plays host to Les Bains has been daringly reinvented by award-winning architect Vincent Bastie. Undulating ceilings, interplay between light and shadow, and the overall reanimation of a timeworn structure behind its grand façade sustains the Les Bains legend while propelling it into the future. The interior design, by Tristan Auer (hailed by Architectural Digest as “one of the 10 best contemporary interior designers and stars of tomorrow”) and Denis Montel (responsible for the aesthetic identity of many Hermes boutiques) is characterized by myriad mood changes, sleek comfort, and enticing social spaces. Notables who once walked the building’s corridors are honored with replica Warhol sofas, Serge Gainsbourg-inspired carpets, and star-studded photography.
