To celebrate summer, Mandarin Oriental, Paris has opened a pop-up bar in its garden that features an artwork by landscape designer, Christophe Gautrand. Offering limited edition Tanqueray gin cocktails, the Red Garden pop-up bar is serving drinks from 9 June to 16 September 2017.
Christophe Gautrand’s creation is the centre-piece of the Red Garden pop-up bar on Bar 8’s outside terrace. A spectacular 14-meter tall plane tree has been laid down and suspended horizontally over the courtyard garden’s “water mirror” pond, and decorated with red cords and Tanqueray gin bottle shards. This artwork will be one of 200 exhibits on display in the French capital during the 7th edition of Paris Design Week, which runs from 8 to 16 September 2017.
Favoured by the chicest Parisians, Bar 8’s tranquil garden is the perfect setting for a convivial evening drink with friends. In tribute to Gautrand’s work, the Red Garden pop-up bar offers five signature cocktails that include the ‘Tokyoite Julep’ made with coriander, red pepper, Tanqueray n°10 gin, sherry, lemon and soda, while its ‘Shinjuku Street’ is a mix of Cognac, Humeshu plum alcohol, Tanqueray n°10 gin, yellow Chartreuse, green lemon and smoky rosemary.
To fully enjoy the hotel’s peaceful garden and pop-up bar, or attend Paris Design Week, guests can book one of its sumptuous Terrace Suites, or expansive Royale Orientale Suite or Panoramic Suite, that overlook the garden and city rooftops. Featuring an elegant pergola and enveloped within extensive greenery that enhances views of the Opera district, Montmartre and L’eglise de la Madeleine, the Royale Orientale Suite and Panoramic Suite each have a 75-square metre roof terrace, also designed by Gautrand. Both suites have lounge, dining and spa areas.
Rates for Terrace Suites start from EUR 2,900. Rates for the Royale Orientale Suite start from EUR 15,000.
