Paris, France – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Opened at the end of April at the heart of the Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris, La Terrasse is a leafy haven a world away from the hustle and bustle of the chic Avenue Hoche. It is the perfect setting for enjoying the first rays of spring sun and people-watching, in the calm of a garden in bloom.
Tables from restaurants La Cuisine and Il Carpaccio spill out softly to share this jewel of a space. The doors of Le Bar Long open here too creating a unique blend of activity and tranquil chatter throughout the day.
Philippe Starck’s interior vision is complemented by the consummate skills of landscape artist Louis Benech, whose garden design works throughout the day and across the seasons. Guests can enjoy a delectable lunch, sip a smooth coffee, or delight in an exquisite Pierre Hermé patisserie, al fresco.
Joana Vasconcelos’ over-scaled surrealist wrought-iron tea-pot appears from between the leaves – a gentle reminder that art sits at the core of Le Royal Monceau, and a playful addition waiting to be discovered dans le jardin.
