The #Tuileries Garden get its name from the tile factories which previously stood on the site where Queen #CatherinedeMedici built the Palais des Tuileries in 1564. #LeNotre, re-landscaped the gardens to give them their current #French formal garden style. The gardens are a cultural walking place for Parisians and tourists where #Maillol statues stand alongside those of #Rodin or #Giacometti. The gardens are Parisian’s favorite sunbathing & pétanque players spot during hot summer days.
Bar 228 has become "the rendez-vous" of well-heeled #Parisians. It has the warmth of #British clubs though reinterpreted by star designer #PhilippeStarck. The hushed decor remains faithful to its origins with wooden bar stools and Chesterfields-meets-Empire chairs. The overhaul tobacco color palette brings sensuality to the dainty atmosphere.
