    ROOMS & SUITES
    For the restoration of some of the guestrooms and suites, the Hotel chose Marie-José Pommereau, who has been responsible for decorating the rooms for the last 14 years. The Hotel now has 154 rooms and 54 suites, having created an additional 14 rooms including eight suites and six guestrooms. Marie-José Pommereau chose a range of warm tones for the walls including peony, sun-infused yellow and silver as well as using materials such as damask, embroideries and plain silks from top couture houses to adorn the windows, armchairs and beds. “Our way of thinking has always revolved around our clients,” she says, “and our aim from the beginning has been to create spaces in line with our guests’ dreams and expectations, in other words guestrooms and apartments that remain intimate and extremely private, which they will be delighted to return to each time that they stay in Paris, as if they were coming back home.”

    DINING & COCKTAILS

    Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée
    After several months of refurbishing, the Plaza Athénée hotel has reopened its doors and with it, the restaurant « Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée ». Here, Alain Ducasse tells a personal and radical story, continuing the work he began twenty-five years ago. He represents the naturalness cuisine, inspired by the fish-vegetables-cereals trilogy, with the help of his chef of Romain Meder. Healthier and more natural, more respectful of the Planet, it delivers a free and nearly instinctive interpretation of Haute Cuisine, revealing the produces’ original flavour, from the noble to the humble, all exceptional. Turning his back on traditional presentation, wines are now classified by generation. 10 years, 15 years, all the way up to 55 years! A beautiful way to chose wine, defined by an event that marks a life and their celebration. Gérard Margeon, Executive Head Sommelier of Alain Ducasse’s restaurants and Laurent Roucayrol, the restaurant’s head sommelier, ensure wine selection. Denis Courtiade, the restaurant’s Manager, presents clients marks of attention that accompany them throughout the meal. He offers innovative, liberated gestures. Simple and authentic movements, building the meal into an experience that engages the entire body.
    The dining room is a gem- designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku – where all is softness of curves, materials and contents. Everywhere is wonder in the remarkable quality of the pieces created with an absolute attention to every detail, a formidable representation of the craftsman’s expertise. The hand of Man at the service of Beauty transcending matter and form. On the table, shapes from yesterday and today are joined in perfect unison. Precious materials cohabitate with the simpler objects in a collection of unique creations designed by Pierre Tachon or Shinichiro Ogata, by Rina Menardi, Gérard Crociani or Tina Frey. Cutlery created in the 1970’s by Roger Tallon is exclusively reedited for the restaurant. Alain Ducasse himself discovered some pieces in flea markets. On the table and in the kitchen alike, crude and noble materials converge.

    Le Relais Plaza
    Elegantly designed in the Art Deco style, the Relais Plaza is one of Avenue Montaigne’s “It-places”. Clients come here to enjoy fabulous Parisian brasserie food.Inaugurated in 1936 and decorated in the purest of pure Art Deco styles, the Relais Plaza is the quintessential chic Parisian grill-room. Traditional grill-room food has been given a new look and updated. The Relais Plaza is open daily for lunch and dinner.Dress code: smart-casual.

    La Terrasse Montaigne

    La Terrasse Montaigne is situated on the most fashionable avenue in Paris and is the place to be seen. Designed by Patrick Jouin, this charming haven of greenery is the perfect place for those on the run as well as those who want to linger or take a break from shopping.

    Le Bar du Plaza Athénée

    Over the last 13 years, Le Bar du Plaza Athénée has become the place to meet in the capital – a coup largely due to Thierry Hernandez, who became manager of the bar in 2001, shortly after the Patrick Jouin’s first makeover. Inspired by the striking contemporary decor, the manager set about rethinking the cocktail menu in order to add even more surprise and innovation, while remaining in tune with the ambience of a bar much loved by Parisian high society. Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have adopted a bold and creative approach to Le Bar, plunging guests into a distinctive and dreamlike atmosphere. The ceiling is hidden under an installation composed of wreaths of fabric whilst the oversized bar in transparent resin levitates within the space. As time passes, the contrast between the floor, the walls and ceiling fades away in an ingenious play of light. Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have created a world in which time seems to stand still. A far cry from the conventional design of a hotel bar, the new Le Bar du Plaza Athénée invents a whole new language and promises an unprecedented experience. In harmony with the spirit of his new bar, Thierry Hernandez injected fresh energy into the menu, concocting new textures, rethinking both the overall look and the service, in order to remain true to his philosophy of “maintaining a special relationship with clients.” Ordering has become even more interactive. The menu can be called up with a flash code, so that the client may read it immediately on their smartphone or telephone and then order their drink. Another major change, remarkable for a Palace, concerns the methods of consumption. Inspired by the “American way of life”, the cocktails now come in Small, Medium and Large. Three sizes for the same cocktail, but mixed in exactly the same way before the eyes of guests – not to mention those of the famous mixologist, who keeps a close watch on the quality of the preparations! While Le Bar du Plaza Athénée has become a chic and glamorous meeting place, it remains elegant and quintessentially Parisian, thanks to the impeccable service and attention paid to each client, irrespective of whether they are staying at the Hotel, and finally to the staff uniforms, complete with dinner jackets. Although it never drowns out the conversation, music plays an integral and ever-present role, thanks largely to a DJ five nights per week.

    Open from May to September, the seasonal restaurant known as La Cour Jardin is located right in the centre of the hotel. As soon as the first sunny days arrive, guests will love the peaceful atmosphere and coolness of this “garden courtyard”La Cour Jardin is a haven of peace, tranquillity and greenery far removed from the noise and bustle of the city. It is the Plaza Athénée’s seasonal restaurant, located in the centre of the hotel.
