high ceilings, fancy bar, and an enormous cage? yep, i’ll take it. le carmen is one of paris’s evening hotspots, and it is g-o-o-o-r-geous. once upon a time it was home to Bizet, composer of the now famous opera Carmen. you won’t hear B’s opera pumping in this chichi club, which pays homage to the man in name only. but the interior is luscious and lovely and if you are in town, it is definitely worth a gander.
did i mention there’s a bed in there? true story.
