Gentlemen 1919: A gentlemen’s club where women are welcome!
Reminiscent of the Cotton Club with its industrial metal fittings, paneling, leather, soft lighting, carefully selected furnishings and vintage drawings, Gentlemen 1919 is a private haven for gentlemen in the capital. This 150 sq.m. space created by a group of friends – Frédéric Lafleur (who once worked with Ducasse), Sébastien Paucod (hairdresser and barber), Maxime Simmonneau (formerly of the Regina) and the young Fiona Lang – takes its cue from the netherworlds of the prohibition era. Hidden at the heart of the luxury barber’s store, a door opens onto an unexpected cocktail bar serving some fifty kinds of whisky and a sophisticated English-style smoking room complete with a fine collection of Havana cigars. This unique space with a chic, warm atmosphere has a friendly, genuine feel – a sort of celebration of the Roaring Twenties. Although women are unlikely to spend much time in the barber’s chair, they are more than welcome in Gentlemen’s secret bar.
