L'Eclaireur Bar-Restaurant

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

A bar-restaurant, located in a small side street between Rue St.-Honoré and Concorde Square in Paris, pretty likely may stay unnoticed. Even staring into the windows of the so called concept store L'Eclaireur, it's not possible to guess that neat rows of smart garments veil a bar. Having crossed a store area, with a peculiar, yet, pleasant scent hanging in the air, you find yourself in a dim bar room - a must to visit for those, claiming to be connoisseurs of the Paris trendy spots. Maybe just two small tables, decked in classic style and placed almost in the very show-window, might have served as a hint. Two chairs brighten up a rather reserved window display - a back of one of them being shaped as a torso of an Arab prince.
An extra value of the bar-restaurant L'Eclaireur is its interior, created by Barnaba Fornasetti, the son of the famous Italian designer Piero Fornasetti. As an inspiration for him has served a once renowned pastry in Milan, Dulciora pâtisserie, that no longer exists. Its décor in the 1950s was created by his father, while the son has adapted it in line with the present day Paris. As a direct allusion serve drunken monkeys, painted on the bar - homage to Dulciora. The bar-restaurant L'Eclaireur is literally stuffed with Fornasetti father's favorite images and themes - Barnaba has designed bar stools with bright red lips, coming from designs of plates from Theme and Variations series, his father once created, and black and white posteriors. There are motifs of playing cards, too, taken from Italian surrealists, figures of Adam and Eva and suns and moons, a wall painting, presenting a paraphrase of a "metaphysical room" created by Piero Fornasetti in 1956, and many more. In a word, it resembles a small exhibition hall, where almost every image and object conveys a significant association with cultural history.
Aperitifs starting from 12 euro; smoking allowed from 7.00 p.m.
