Tucked inside a luxurious five-star hotel, Le Bar du Plaza Athénée is a chic little hideaway where an international clientele meets for high-end cocktails in swanky surroundings. Molded wood paneling, delicate chandeliers, and high ceilings recall the art nouveau elegance of the hotel itself, while distinctly modern features like metal and leather stools give the space a slick, iced-out aesthetic. Soothing ambient music and blue lighting mark the Blue Hours, the early evenings at Le Bar when an upscale clientele of business people and out-of-towners gathers at low tables in the lounge area. After 22:00 on Thursdays through Saturdays, however, the glass bar begins to glow with vivid red light to mark the Red Hours, and the vibe heats up as DJs take the stage to spin electro rock that brings in young, well-to-do locals and A-listers in full designer garb. The ideal place for “your best cocktail experience”.
