Kong, Sex and the City. An American Girl in Paris: Part Deux (2004)

Kong, Sex and the City. An American Girl in Paris: Part Deux (2004)

The well-known sports section of the La Samaritaine department store was formerly located in this building, which belongs to the luxury concern LVMH. Now the premises house the largest Kenzo store in the world. However, that is not why this address is so popular. Since 2003, the Kong bar and restaurant, with an interior by French designer Philippe Starck, has been located on the edifice's top floor. In one of the final episodes of the TV series Sex and the City, New Yorker Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) meets Juliette, the ex-wife of her current beau, Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov) after two weeks in Paris. Overawed, Carrie exclaims: "This is a fantastic restaurant!" In turn, Juliette (played by beautiful French actress Carole Bouquet), who is connected to the fashion world, merely shrugs her shoulders with Parisian indifference: "It used to be, not anymore." In a sense, she is right. The trendy aura of Kong has indeed faded somewhat, but the view from the windows is still spectacular.
