Have you heard about Le Burgundy? This 5-star Parisian hotel both trendy and arty managed to find a new youth after existing for 170 years! Let’s discover its story together, shall we?

Paris is a city full of history and the museums are not the only places that can say so! Among places that saw the Parisian life evolve across the years, we have hotels. Today, we’re diving into the history of Le Burgundy, a super-trendy 5-star hotel in the Madeleine area.

It’s very little know but Le Burgundy Paris opened in 1850. The Madeleine neighborhood – then booming – was one of the liveliest in town with theaters, cafés, food store and luxury stores. Genuine place to be, the address is what we call one of the most comfortable “furnished house” welcoming wealthy travelers from France and Europe who often stayed for several months. By the way, in the former record books, we find some names from the aristocracy from the Second Empire alongside illustrious name such as poet Charles Baudelaire after whom the restaurant has been named.

If the origin of the name of the hotel is still a mystery, Anglomania was very trendy and it’s odds on that “Burgundy” was picked up to satisfy clients from Victorian England very present in Paris. Since then, after 170 years, Le Burgundy has lived many lives with several owners and now welcomes travelers from all over the world, making of their Parisian stay an exceptional moment.

Now, Le Burgundy enjoyed a makeover in 2010 and welcome gourmets at Le Baudelaire restaurant that has been awarded a Michelin star. Behind the stove, executive chef Guillaume Goulpil and pastry chef Pascal Hainigue. For cocktail fans, bar Le Charles is likely to be a favorite. So, don’t miss the occasion to add it to your post-confinement wishlist!
