MmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmMmOooh là là! This tantalising bar (and restaurant) located in the Palais de Tokyo is the epitome of Parisian allure to make just about anyone go weak at the knees. Sitting seductively in the gallery’s new wing, Monsieur Bleu is perched on the quays of the Seine, just across from the Eiffel Tower, and delivers the ultimate Paris experience, cocktail in hand, of course. Despite its name, Monsieur Bleu is actually a predominant shade of grey, envisioned by architect Joseph Dirand, a designer both cosmopolitan and international. Dirand was able to lift the aesthetic far beyond dull by introducing luxurious velvet green upholstery, swirling veined marble, modern friezes, contemporary furniture, glossy surfaces and statement light fixtures to the mix. Upping the glamour stakes to the max is the central gold bar, where discreet visitors can wile away hours whispering sweet nothings, working through a cocktail menu clearly created by the gods.
