Flashback to the bewitching Shanghai of the 30s, inside this exclusive bar, nestled face to face with the Eiffel Tower. Passion red walls, low-key atmosphere, vintage cocktails, private terrace, a very special mysterious fragrance floats in this secret setting, that opens every night to a handful of happy few—maximum thirty persons.
An “In the mood for love” atmosphere
For those in the know, the Sóng bar, named after the dynasty, occupies a deluxe suite of the Shangri-La, entirely revamped in keeping with the In the mood for love spirit. Magical.
And to really complete the experience on a high note, chef barman Clément Emery has concocted unusual cocktails inspired by the era’s know-how, mixed with Hendrick’s Gin and Glenfiddich Whiskies (€35-65). In terms of nibbles, be sure to try their couture baos (€20 for 4 pieces) and the best dim sum of Paris, created by masters of the discipline on deck in the star-studded restaurant of the palace (€ 20 for 6 pieces).
The plus? A heated terrace where you can clink glasses while watching the Eiffel Tower, a privilege usually reserved for stars and visiting beautiful people.
Bar Song, open every day from 6pm until midnight, by reservation on 01 53 67 19 98.
