For the cosmopolitan sophisticate in constant search of extraordinary experiences, Moët Hennessy has unveiled their latest luxury endeavor: CRAVAN, a celebration of French art de vivre nestled in the heart of the iconic and literarily rich Saint-Germain-des-Prés district in Paris. Brimming with the brand’s decades-long expertise in curating spectacular occasions, CRAVAN is an inviting destination for local Parisians and world travelers alike.
Resting within a grandiose 17th-century Parisian edifice, CRAVAN’s interiors are artfully reconceptualized by Belgian maestro Ramy Fischler. The venue’s vibrant pulse is felt throughout its five floors, each narrating a different tale. Every corner of CRAVAN is a tribute to the arts – from fashion and cinema to literature, captivating your senses as you traverse its three cocktail bars or peruse the carefully curated Rizzoli bookstore.
The pinnacle of the building, accessible by exclusive invitation, houses a charming Parisian kiosk and private atelier. On languid summer nights, this rooftop haven transforms into a magical movie screening arena under the starlit Parisian sky, serving as an intimate escape within the city’s vibrant atmosphere.
Philippe Schaus, Chairman and CEO of Moët Hennessy, regards the inception of CRAVAN as a triumphant milestone in the brand’s pursuit of defining the future of luxury wines and spirits. “CRAVAN is a testament to Moët Hennessy’s mission: the creation of unparalleled experiences,” states Schaus. “We’re thrilled to invite our guests into the distinctive universe of CRAVAN, nestled in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, offering them an immersion into our unique and sustainable approach to hospitality and epicureanism.”
The essence of CRAVAN is not merely a result of Moët Hennessy’s vision but a collaboration with the acclaimed historian turned restaurateur and cocktail connoisseur, Franck Audoux. As CRAVAN’s founder and Artistic Director, Audoux infuses his distinctive approach to cocktail-making—both scientific and poetic—into the establishment, further elevating Moët Hennessy’s renowned luxury art de vivre.
True to its spirit of fostering dialogue and shared experiences, CRAVAN’s heart lies in its team of artisans-turned-mixologists. These dedicated professionals embody the spirit of CRAVAN, ensuring every guest is welcomed into a space where they can meet, converse, reflect, taste, and rejoice.
As you plan your next Parisian escapade, enrich your itinerary with a visit to CRAVAN, situated at 165 boulevard Saint-Germain, Paris 6e. Open from Tuesday to Saturday, 5 pm to 2 am, let this captivating venue become a highlight of your luxurious journey.
