Party Earth Kong Review

The Scene

Catapulted into fame when it was featured on Sex and the City in 2004, Kong is an over-the-top, très chic restaurant and bar designed by Philippe Starck.

Catapulted into fame when it was featured on Sex and the City in 2004, Kong is an over-the-top, très chic restaurant and bar designed by Philippe Starck.

Inspired by Japanese pop art, the East Asian theme is given a modern translation and features such bold touches as a fluorescent green stairway, a glossy orange bar with inlaid red orchids, and acrylic chairs and panels painted with the faces of modern-day geishas.

The pink couches and tiny tables in the dining area are usually occupied by an older, well-dressed, and somewhat pretentious crowd, while the hip bar on the lower level attracts a clientele of attractive young professionals and jet-setters.

The bar, which features DJs and dancing after 10:30pm, is particularly popular on Thursday nights for the Oriental Funk party when a varied mix of high-end travelers, business moguls, models, and glitterati pass through.

Located on the top two glass-enclosed floors of the LVMH building, Kong also offers an excellent view of the Seine – but guests should be prepared to pay a pretty penny for the privilege of enjoying it, as well as the food and cocktails.

Tip from Adriana:

Instead of going on one of the more crowded nights, try Kong for a Sunday brunch. You can see a lot more in the daylight, and this is a place that’s all about the view.

Not too Posh to Party
Ella M. Feb 21, 2013
With supper finished and alcohol supplies running low, our attention quickly turned to where next to continue the party. Kong was suggested and we were soon pulling on our coats and rushing out the door. This sleek bar in the centre of Paris (1 Rue du Pont Neuf 75001) is a popular spot with an international and jet set crowd, and whilst this initially may sound unappealing, the excellent cocktails and shameless dancing make for a great night out.
