Grand Pigalle: Hotel in Paris
The Experimental Group's team have opened their first hotel address, a retro cocktail bar with bohemian-style rooms.
A “Bed & Beverage” type of place
Located in SoPi (a trendy Parisian abbreviation of South Pigalle), in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the Experimental Group team has entered the hotel game by opening the Grand Pigalle hotel in 2015.
Nestled into a six-story typical Haussmann-style building with a 25-meter long façade on the corner of Rue Victor-Massé and Rue Henry-Monnier, the hotel was renovated over the course of a year and entirely decorated by the designer Dorothée Meilichzon, the hotel’s lifelong sidekick. The hotel, considered a “Bed & Beverage”, reveals a hushed and relaxed atmosphere enhanced with a British and vintage touch, a reflection of this bohemian neighbourhood in the midst of its own re-birth. Crown molding, eight-sided windows, marble fireplaces, antique wallpaper, geometric patterns, brass and mahogany give the hotel undeniable character. In its corridors, the Martini glass patterned carpets, created by Meilichzon herself, lead the way to the rooms.
The 37 rooms of the Grand Pigalle are available in five romantic and intimate layouts. The rooms are arranged with padded upholstered headboards, rotary telephones, satin sheets, old-fashioned light switches, brass lamps, rugs, textured wallpaper, vintage fittings, golden pineapple-shaped door stoppers and TVs hidden behind mirrors. The mini-bars are filled with signature cocktails by the Experimental Cocktail Club. The bathrooms feature traditional tiling.
The hotel’s epicenter is on the ground floor; there is no lobby but instead a fusion of a lobby, lounge, bar, and the Frenchie restaurant. For the restaurant, the hotel has opted for an international French inspired cuisine by chef Greg Marchand.
Le Grand Pigalle is a trendy address in a booming cosmopolitan neighborhood.
