Just went for a drink. We have been listening to their music for 20 years and wanted to have a look. Very stylish with big pricing for the location and reputation.

The place is very uniques and it is worth to go when you have a good company. It is also good in case you have business visitors and you would like to have a chill and fun time. It is though a bit expensive therefore please consider something special for going there.

I've spent time in Buddha Bar(s) in Dubai and New York, and now Paris. Or not. Visited with a friend who loves the place for its cool vibe and 'Parisian flavour' when we really wanted to go to a local bar, drink Pastis and hang with the locals. Big mistake. Would've liked to experience the much hyped Paris BB experience,... More

The drinks were very good and the bartenders were incredibly helpful. We fought through the language barrier and even got a few recommendations for other... More

Our first visit for a long weekend. Yes we would do it again. Great location, just off Fauburg St Honore and near the Place Madelaine. You can walk everywhere. The room (a deluxe double) was roomy and had a separate shower and bath. The bathroom is black and to shave you really need more light. There was dust in the... More
