Alcazar Restaurant

Alcazar Restaurant

Revamped by Architect and interior designer Lola Gonzalez, in late 2015, the former cabaret has a fresh look that inspires most. Elegant and poetic, plants take centerpiece giving it a garden appearance, a meeting of the finest handicrafts; marble, brass, terrazzo, straw and wood…large banquets and tables, a large house with an encircling balcony, a coveted cocktail bar.

A modern take on dishes by Guillaume Lutard; “Poached organic egg, mushrooms, liver” “roasted wild cod, braised fennel”, “filet de canette de challans roasted with honey and ginger, figs, butternut and sweet potato” and “Pavlova, passion fruit.” A refined cuisine with worldly touches.

And the transition continues upstairs at the cocktail bar, a delightful surprise !

Little Red Door bar

Little Red Door bar

Do we need a key? You might ask. No key necessary but look attentively for the Red Door (no signs). Inspired by the American bars of the prohibition era, the interior is a mix of industrial and creative design. Velvet bar stools, patchwork couches and an elevated nook (ideal for big groups). The atmosphere is cool and comfortable, yet remains elegant. English speaking bartenders take their craft seriously (great cocktails we must say!) but not themselves. And above all what we love about the little red door, is the diversity of their clientele (a nice pool of Internationals and Parisians).
