    VIBE

    Don’t be fooled by the buttoned-up neighborhood and historic townhouse façade–cult designer Andrée Putman was given free reign when converting this old dame into a trendy hotel, and the results are mind-bending. Those looking to get their drink on down the rabbit hole of Pershing Hall will find themselves either in a magical hanging garden (yep, we’re talking a jaw-droppingly lush 35-meter wall smothered in foliage) or a trippy boho-Rococo bar dripping in beading, gauzy curtains, and sparkly mirrors. The garden area (which is in a glassed-in courtyard) is the primo spot for afternoon or early evening drinks, while later on (once the DJ starts spinning) it’s the pink-lit gypsy lounge that’s where the party crowd gathers.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Something urban chic; sharp trousers or a skirt paired with “must have” boots or heels.

    CROWD

    An eclectic mix of trendsetters, from young professionals stopping by with loosened ties to haute fashionistas to connected media types.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    It’s a great spot for stylish early evening drinks. The area near the hanging gardens is definitely the coolest, so we do what we can to score a view of the greenery–although there’s still fun to be had (especially later on in the evening) if you end up in the spangly lounge area instead.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The service is slow and snooty (no surprise for a spot this fashionable) and some of the “stylish” chairs are uncomfortable.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    When the weather is nice, the glass roof over the courtyard gets opened up. (Nice to get the fresh air, though cigarette-phobes beware that smoking is allowed when it’s open air.) The top tables (near the greenery) tend to be reserved for hotel guests, although you might be able to snag one if you make a dinner reservation. In case any budding botanists are wondering, the garden wall is home to 300+ species of trees/shrubs from places as far flung as the Philippines, the Himalayas, and the Amazon. And finally, a fun fact for the Yanks: this building once housed the American Legion in Paris.
