Once a bathhouse for the likes of Marcel Proust, a hotspot for the Bohemians of the Belle Époque, and a famed nightclub, Les Bains is gloriously back—this time, as a boutique hotel in Le Marais.

Interior design A trove of atmospheric spaces

For the interiors, Les Bains tapped designers Tristan Auer and Denis Montel.

Auer, who designed the rooms, was recently named “one of 10 best contemporary interior designers, stars of tomorrow” by Architectural Digest. Montel, who is responsible for the chic French Hermes boutiques around the world, is the man behind Les Bains’ ground-floor restaurant/salon. Perhaps Les Bains’ greatest achievement is its ability to present spaces that create vastly different moods.

Architecture A daring reinvention

The building that houses Les Bains is a Haussmannian masterpiece.

Prize-winning architect Vincent Bastie radically reconfigured the building, amplifying its volumes, while respecting its history and its grand façade. At Les Bains, the bar is a brilliant display of architectural daring. Ceilings curve, walls disappear into darkness, and lights reflect off surfaces that not only create mood but seem to bend time.

“The building has a powerful aura, a mix of glamour and raw spirit.”

Art & Culture Street to high art

Living legend on the NYC graffiti scene, Futura designed a fresco at Les Bains in 1983, still present and relevant today.

Two mosaics by Space Invader from 2002 are in place, joining David Rochline’s 1978 entrance mural. Owner Jean-Pierre Marois has invited some of these artists to take up permanent residence, where they produce work exclusively for Les Bains.

History An icon reborn

You can feel them in the foyer: the ghosts of parties past.

Warhol and Basquiat conspiring near the double-faced clock; Yves Saint Laurent under the David Rocheline frescoes; footsteps echoing across 19th-century floral tiles where Proust once walked. And the music reverberates—Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Prince—downstairs across the mosaic tile pool of a million late-night indiscretions.

City An old jewel

The property is set at 7 Rue du Bourg L’Abbé, a jewel of the historic third arrondissement. Le Marais district is a trove of atmospheric streets and architectural splendors.

Once a private bathhouse for the likes of Marcel Proust, a hotspot for the Bohemians of the Belle Époque, and a famed nightclub where Jagger and Bowie romped, Les Bains keeps Paris’ Le Marais neighbourhood glowing after dark.
