Shangri-La Hotel Paris Opens Three Dining Terraces for Summer
The Shangri-La Hotel Paris marries European grandeur and the Asian art of service, to great acclaim. The 101-room hotel boasts views of the Eiffel Tower and the Seine from the balcony of its exclusive seventh-floor La Suite Shangri-La, which will be available this summer from around $27,200 a night. From July 12 through August 6, the suite will open to the public, hosting nightly offerings of Krug Champagne and Petrossian caviar on the terrace. Reservations are required, and guests should expect to spend around $615 to split a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée.
Also at the Shangri-La this summer, the seasonal terrace restaurant La 8 Iéna will feature cuisine by chef Philippe Labbé. In front of the hotel behind wrought-iron gates, the space will open daily until mid-September from noon to 10:30 pm, serving a menu that includes a Cantonese-style duck-and-crab hamburger.
Finally, on the second floor of the hotel will be a third seasonal space. Until September 7, the Summer Terrace will serve cocktails as the sun sets over a partial view of the Eiffel Tower. From 4:00 pm to 11:30 pm, a special range of Belvedere Vodka cocktails designed for the terrace will include the Asian Dry Belvedere: lemon juice and dry vermouth infused with rose, lotus, lychee tea, and sugar. No reservations are needed. (+126.96.36.199.1998, www.shangri-la.com/paris)
