About the Surroundings:
The hotel Fouquets Barriere is located at the intersection of where the Champs-Elysees meets Avenue George V, overlooking the finest avenue in the world. This property remains the city's pre-eminent address and in one of the world's exclusive shopping, cultural, and business neighbourhoods.
One of the principal tourist destinations in Paris, the lower part of the Champs-Elysées is bordered by greenery (Marigny Square) and by such buildings as the Théâtre Marigny and the Grand Palais (containing the Palais de la Découverte). The Élysée Palace is a little bit to the north, not on the avenue itself. Farther up to the west, the avenue is lined by cinemas, theatres, cafés and restaurants (most notably Fouquet's), and luxury specialty shops.
The Champs-Elysées is also the traditional end of the last stage of the Tour de France.Every year on Bastille Day, the largest military parade in Europe passes down the Champs-Elysées, reviewed by the President of the Republic.
At the western end of the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe suggests an ancient Roman arch, only it's larger. Actually, it's the biggest triumphal arch in the world, about 49m (161 ft.) high and 44m (144 ft.) wide.
Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière has a new restaurant offer starting 23rd January: the Parisian version of La Petite Maison de Nicole, the famous restaurant in Nice. Every evening the gallery at Fouquet’s restaurant takes on the famous Provencal restaurant’s colours & flavours.
Hôtel Fouquet’s version of La Petite Maison de Nicole in Paris was set up thanks to the friendship between restaurant owner Nicole Rubi and Dominique Desseigne, chairman of Lucien Barrière Hôtels & Casinos, who wished to give his Paris customers a taste of Provence. While focusing on its core leisure business, warmth, hospitality, a family atmosphere and generosity have always underpinned Lucien Barrière’s values, which are also shared by Nicole and her little houses.
The apostrophe "s" added to its name made Fouquet's café, initially a meeting place for coachmen in the late 1900s, one of the most famous places in the world! The café embodies the spirit of the Parisian brasserie whose taste for festivity sparked off at the beginnings of the silver screen by Maurice Chevalier, Raimu, Georges Simenon and later Orson Welles and Jeanne Moreau who held the reins of shows such as Joséphine Baker, and later on Liza Minelli. Today, other artists figure on the credits of this constantly renewed history that is added to by each day and each party.
