Kong divides club-goers and newbies to the Paris scene, but it's a must-do at least once to check out the view and a very pretty crowd [Read the Nightclub & Bar Review]
Nightclub & Bar Review
Kong is a chic restaurant and lounge bar sitting on the top floors of the LVMH building overlooking Pont Neuf in Paris. Fans of Phillipe Starck interiors will notice his familiar bold colour palette and use of quirky photo portraits like another of his works, Light Bar at St. Martins Lane Hotel in London, although it has to be said that this isn’t one of his best.
Lurid neon-greens and wide-eyed manga girls abound, and the standout of the space is the large glass-roofed terrace on the top floor which offers a pretty panorama both inside and out, plus a slice of the River Seine glistening several floors below. The clean interior is almost over-simplified but it’s redeemed when flooded with natural light and the pearly whites of a beautiful and stylish crowd.
For guys that like model types and the girls after some Louis Vuitton dons - the lounge bar at Kong is the place, and although some people may not dig the slightly pretentious atmosphere, for others it’s the perfect mix of looks and style. The French-Japanese fusion menu is solid if not spectacular, with some gourmet offerings and a lot of fresh fish plates, and the cocktails are good (although you can expect to pay around €16 for the privilege) - they use premium spirits and the champagne cocktails are very nice.
Having said that - Kong is about seeing and being seen while some DJs play cool House and entertain a flawless crowd when the sun goes down. The bar on the lower level is the place for cocktails and music, and although you don’t get the glass-domed terrace it’s still a great setting for some upmarket drinks and a midnight tryst.
