Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Ça c’est Paris !

Fouquet’s was largely redecorated by Jacques Garcia two years ago and its metamorphosis will be complete in September when it unveils nineteen new rooms and suites. Meanwhile, we can turn to Le Joy and delight in its refreshing cuisine and garden.

Fouquet’s has been a famous name in Paris since 1899, the date when the brasserie was founded. The hotel is much more recent, of course, but thanks to Jacques Garcia, it distils an absolutely Parisian je ne sais quoi in its public areas and also in its rooms and suites, where visitors will recognize the most striking features of Haussmannian style: Hungarian point parquet flooring, antique mirrors and moldings above large marble fireplaces – most of them with views of the Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe!

The luxury hotel has just opened its Legacy Store boudoir-style boutique, presenting a whole range of luxury products: art of living, hi-tech, jewelry, watches, accessories, coffee-table books and travel. The Legacy Store has found its grand orchestrator in the shape of Sébastien Chapelle, who presided over the watchmaking and hi-tech destiny of Paris concept store Colette for fourteen years.

Paying a visit there is essential before discovering Le Joy restaurant, where Bruno Guéret and Raymond Nordin reinvent contemporary seasonal cuisine in association with the pastry chef. We admire the touches dear to Garcia – emerald and purple, huge bookcases – in a perfect fusion of English club and great French restaurant. The magic of the evening continues at Le Joy bar, run by Stéphane Ginouvès, holder of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France Barman award, or in the interior garden where notes of Provence enhance the pure Parisian spirit.
