Moët Hennessy, the wine and spirits arm of LVMH, has openedCravan, a new luxury cocktail bar in Paris.
The five-floor bar is located at 165 Saint-Germain Boulevard in the sixth district of Paris.
The bar is housed in a 17th-century Parisian building, which has been reimagined by Belgian designer Ramy Fischler.
The structure will also have a Rizzoli bookstore curated by Cravan.
For this venture, Moët Hennessy partnered with Franck Audoux, the founder and artistic director of Cravan.
Audoux is a historian turned restaurateur and cocktail expert. He founded the original Cravan site on Rue Jean de la Fontaine.
Moët Hennessy will provide the drinks to the bar, which will be mixed under the supervision of Audoux.
The top floors of the venue have a by-invitation-only private atelier and mini Parisian kiosk perched on the building’s rooftop, where movies will be screened on warm summer nights.
Moët Hennessy chairman and CEO Philippe Schaus said: “It is with great pride that we open today the doors of Cravan, bringing to life Moët Hennessy’s mission: crafting experiences.
“I am delighted to start welcoming our guests at the heart of a historical literary neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, inviting them to step into the unique and singular universe of Cravan.
“Celebrating epicureanism through a sustainable, lasting, and inspired approach of hospitality, Cravan is a strategic milestone in Moët Hennessy’s ambition to lead the future of luxury wines and spirits.”
The bar will be open from Tuesday to Saturday between 5PM and 2AM.
