La Fantaisie, the new jewel nestled in the heart of Paris's 9th arrondissement, unveils its charms in September 2023. The fruit of an association between the Leitmotiv group and talented chef Dominique Crenn, the hotel promises a gourmet and relaxing immersion on Rue Cadet.

The Hotel La Fantaisie, located in the lively Faubourg Montmartre district, is the first Parisian establishment by renowned Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki. The hotel's fantastic architecture revolves around a spectacular courtyard-garden that pays homage to the establishment's location: rue Cadet, named after the brothers and master gardeners Jacques and Jean Cadet. For the record, they supplied the courtyard with fruit and vegetables in the 16th century.

The chromatic palette, combining soft greens, sunny yellows and coral accents, underscores this natural theme, creating a serenity conducive to rejuvenation. Decorative elements such as cane-upholstered backrests and glass sconces evoke petals and foliage.

With its superb interior garden, this hotel is all about nature and plants. It's the ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries. The hotel's 63 rooms and 10 suites (some with balconies and/or terraces) - as well as the Holidermie spa - provide the perfect break from the urban, mineral world.

The Holidermie spa offers a sanctuary of well-being where tranquility reigns. From the mosaic depicting a flourishing field to the soft green upholstered furniture, every detail aspires to relaxation.

La Fantaisie will be under the culinary direction of the remarkable Dominique Crenn, a visionary and creative chef making her return to France after officiating in the United States since the 1980s. Dominique Crenn is famous for having transformed Californian gastronomy to the point of becoming the first and only chef to be awarded three Michelin stars in the United States. On-site, 3 dining spots are waiting to be discovered. The Poppy Café and the Golden Poppy, a restaurant that combines her culinary roots in France with her love of California. The chef will adopt a zero-plastic, zero-waste philosophy.

But the good news doesn't stop there, as a rooftop bar awaits lovers of beautiful views over Paris. This will be the 3rd gourmet spot for the chef, who invites us to join her in April to enjoy the capital. The seasonal cocktails to be offered at the Rooftop Bar and Golden Poppy Restaurant promise sophistication and casualness. They will be served in Mexican ceramic cups or vintage wooden glasses. Cocktails and mocktails tell the story of California through drinks inspired by the diversity of the West Coast and its historical influence on the cocktail world, such as the invention of the Tiki.

We're talking about the Mai Tai, born in California in 1944, a cocktail emblematic of Tiki culture made with rum, curacao, orgeat and lime juice. The menu will also recall that San Francisco was responsible for popularizing agave (and margaritas) around the world, from Julio Bermejo to Tommy's, as well as being the disputed birthplace of the Martini. It will echo legendary trends and bars, such as Twin Peaks Tavern in San Francisco's Castro district, a pioneer in openly promoting gay culture in 1972.

On the rooftop, pescetarian amuse-bouches are also on the menu: oysters, onion pancakes or carrots with Vadouvan spices.

La Fantaisie is more than a hotel; it's an immersive experience, a meeting place for history, nature and gastronomy. Gourmets, wellness enthusiasts and lovers of elegant design will find it a haven of peace and discovery.

On Thursday, September 21, Hôtel La Fantaisie was inaugurated with great pomp and ceremony, in the presence of a host of celebrities. See all the photos in the evening album.
