Grand Marnier inaugurates their “Grande Maison”
This was an event every liqueur connoisseur was not about to miss. In a Paris just recovering from Fashion Week and anticipating FIAC!, you’d have to be at Hôtel du Duc to celebrate with Grand Marnier the opening of their “Grande Maison”. From the street, the imposing entrance looked like the one of a very private club. As you went up the marble stairs after crossing a corridor covered with red curtains. Upstairs, the #ToujoursGrand welcomes the Parisian night owl who set out to conquer the many salons, corridors and secret passageways of this impressive space. Of course, the entire setting had been designed with the Grand Marnier spin (and the color red). The many bars (sometimes hidden behind a maze) offered the opportunity to discover the brand’s own cocktails or to enjoy the liquor in its purest form. As you walked from room to room, a few alcoves could catch your attention, such as the one designed perfume brand Atelier Cologne, or the juices in different shades of orange exhibited behind a mysterious triangle mirror. Our journey ends, after joyful peregrinations, on the “Grand Dancefloor” where Piu Piu, Kiddy Smile and Bon Entendeur all put everybody in the mood to party.
