W Paris Opera Is Finalment Open, But Don't Expect To Hit The Bar Ce Soir

Zut alors! It’s two weeks since the W Paris Opera’s scheduled open date – Valentine’s Day – and we did wonder why we hadn’t heard anything about ‘ow romantique it is yet. And today we found out why – it was closed!
Seems the hotel said non, non, non to the idea of christening its sheets on the most romantic day of the year – and delayed its opening to today. Well, it’s a leap year, per’aps that seemed more memorable. But let's not forget, this is the hotel's fifth opening date. It better be good after this.
We just called the hotel tonight, and were told that oui, it is open, but non, if we want to come to the bar, we’ll have to stay up late on a school night – because it doesn’t open till 10pm. Talk about leaving it till the last minute.
On the plus side, you can book a room for tonight, for the princely sum of €430. On the minus, if the bar’s closed till 10pm, that doesn’t bode well for your amenities. Guess you’ll just have to pretend it’s Valentine’s after all.
