The ambience inside the restaurant was marvellous. There was a banquet hall on the same floor as the restaurant and a wedding reception was taking place there. Our meal was great. But after dinner and as we were walking to the lift lobby, we had a shock of our lives. We found the entire lift lobby transformed into a “smoking lounge” with restaurant’s diners as well as those attending the wedding function puffing away.

The gentlemen’s smoking lounge is making a comeback in Paris as nicotine addicts seek cosy refuge from smoking bans in mainstream bars.
