Welcome to the Plaza Athenee, one of Paris' most luxurious palace hotels. You remember Carrie Bradshaw's uber-chic Parisian pied-à-terre in the final episodes of Sex and the City? That's right, shot at the Plaza.
If you're in Paris for a couple of days, please do yourself a favour and book a table at the exclusive Bar du Plaza for a drink. Clearly, you're not in for a cheap ride but this is one of these indulgent experiences you won't forget. Swanky decor created by hot Parisian designer Patrick Jouin (one of Philippe Starck's former proteges), beautiful people and fantastic cocktails created by award-winning resident mixologist Thierry Hernandez.
Basically, the Plaza Colada Sushi is a cocktail you can eat, made up of six melt-in-the-mouth marshmallows infused with rum, pineapple juice and coconut milk topped by several delicate, wafer-thin slices of pineapple. Using chopsticks, you dip the “sushi” in a Pina Colada syrup, then into crisp, finely-powdered coconut, and then bon appetit! Definitely worth a try!
So tell me dear reader, what else exciting is happening cocktail-wise in your part of town?
