We’ve been aching for more details on what Peninsula Hotels has in store for us in Paris, having walked past the construction site on Avenue Kléber earlier this year and last spring. After playing around with their seriously high-tech bedside tablets, we finally have a few more details on what’s going to be inside the 1908 Beaux Arts building in the city’s 16th arrondissement come opening time next year.

First of all, say it with us: rooftop bar, rooftop bar! One of our favorite hotel pursuits will be possible at the Peninsula Paris, with a planned rooftop restaurant, bar, and terrace serving ‘modern French cuisine’. The terrace has capacity for 50 people, so we bet this is going to be one hot ticket once the sun is out. Equally, you can bet we will be getting our behinds up there toute suite after opening to tell you all about it.

That rooftop bar crowns seven stories of guest accommodations and facilities above ground, with an additional three basement levels. Total room count stops at 200. Like all Peninsula Hotels, there will be The Lobby on the ground floor, serving food all day, with a terrace facing Avenue Kléber. The one existing rendering of the exterior shows an elaborate metal (and we assume glass?) contraption over the suitably grand entrance, guarded by two white marble lions.

A Chinese restaurant brings the Asian heritage of the group to Paris, while there will also be the very en vogue cigar lounge, seating just eight. The 18,000 square feet spa downstairs will have an indoor pool with poolside café for drinks, treatment rooms, changing rooms, and fitness center.

Rates are not available yet, but we’d put money on anything less than four figures a night (i.e. €1,000 - $1,330) being unlikely for the majority, if not all, of the accommodation. Better start saving now…
