Hôtel Panache

Paris, France

Hôtel Panache

A triangular prism, this seven-story corner building from the late 19th century follows the Hôtel Paradis as the latest Adrien Gloaguen project. Revisiting the codes of the era, the Panache embraces Art Nouveau, transposes it to today’s tastes and adds its own modern twist. At street level, an immense counter in walnut, blackened wood, marble and brass creates the link between the restaurant and hotel. To the left, what was once the Zazou pastry shop is now a neighborhood restaurant under the direction of David Lanher. To the right, the hotel’s reception area with its blown glass lamps evokes the convivial ambiance of Adolf Loos’ Viennese cafés. And ultimately, there is the notion of a refuge, one existing outside of time, where rusted banquettes have been transformed into first class wagons, where the stools go on safari and the library of travel guides takes one all over Paris. The scene has been set with an aesthetic designed by Dorothée Meilichzon.

  • The Panache is quintessentially Parisian. Imbued with a strong character, it confidently assumes its quirkiness, relentlessly attentive to style. 40 guest rooms, spread over seven floors, no two are identical, yet all share the same color scheme - navy blue, forest green, and anthracite grey on white – that adorns walls hung with brass picture rails. It is a hotel with many points of view – winding here, moving straight ahead there, and sliding on rounded edges. Behind each door is a different experience – the journey of an evening. Each floor boasts rooms designed for families and corner rooms with bathtubs and balconies with views. The first floor is home to a surreal capsule apartment complete with patio and garden. Just under the roof is the hotel’s exclusive suite.

Interior design by Dorothée Meilichzon

  • Not one to rely on easy repetition, Dorothée Meilichzon presents her fourth Parisian hotel design with The Panache. Taking inspiration from the Flatiron Building in New York City – an icon in terms of corner buildings – the designer has set the walls to the rhythms of geometric prints, arrows, and scattered fetishes. She has played with lines by installing a carpet with a mini triangle motif. Guests are caught off-guard with surprising mirror installations on the desks and bedside tables. It is new modernity tinged with a slightly retro Parisian accent.


  • Embodying a new generation of entrepreneurs, Adrien Gloaguen and David Lanher met in the 10th arrondissement at the opening of the Hôtel Paradis on the rue des Petites-Ecuries, back when Vivant, started by David Lanher, was in full swing.
  • Seduced by the personality of the hosts, restaurant owner David Lanher – already responsible for the success of Racines, Racines 2 and Racines New-York, Caffé Stern and, more recently, the entrepreneur behind the sacred Bon Saint-Pourçain in the Saint-Sulpice neighborhood – brought in good food at fair prices to offer a kind of cuisine centered on sharing that celebrates fine products.
