Founded in 1958 by Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet, founder of the world-renowned advertising agency Publicis Group, the drugstore was designed to bring American bar culture to the Parisian public. Tom Dixon DRS has simplified and enhanced the interior architecture to highlight a broad palette of finishes and materials. The timber walls and marble bars are complimented by deep tones of oxblood upholstery and brass fixtures as a contemporary take on the glamourous Sixties. The library’s lounge offers a more intimate and relaxed dining experience. The lounge is framed by a bespoke brass and reeded glass bookcase. An open kitchen and patisserie serves as a window onto the cuisine of the three Michelen starred chef Éric Frechon.
