The bourgeois-bohemian Hotel Panache is on the corner of Poissonnière, one of the liveliest streets in the 9th. Adrien Gloaguen chose this area, wedged between SoPi (South Pigalle) and Grands Boulevards carefully for his hotel-restaurant comprising thirty-eight very Parisian rooms decorated by the excellent Dorothée Meilichzon – who also designed the Hotel Paradis.
The Panache, which was once named “l'Opéra-Madrid” may be three-starred but it has serious class. Damask, gilded wood, printed carpet and Parisian metro bathroom tiles: this is neo-art deco design at its finest. And the beautiful curved rattan headboards and oldy-worldy lamps are glorious. Rooms (12m2 for a single and 25m2 for a deluxe) are comfortable, functional and full of thoughtful details like fortune cookies, welcome messages and replica 1931 Ericsson replica telephones. If you’re after more space, head to the Capsule apartment on the first floor, complete with a small garden and terrace under the roof.
And last but not least, the bar-restaurant: an immense chunk of blackened wood, marble and brass which stretches between the bar and the restaurant where Adrien Gloaguen teams up with David Lanher of Le Vivant and Le Bon Saint-Pourçain. Expect natural wines and fresh produce from Terroir d’avenir to tick all the neo-bistro boxes. Parisian through and through.
