Restaurant Visit: Hotel Amour Courtyard in Paris

February 11, 2015

Known for its 24 idiosyncratically decorated rooms where erotic photos mingle with the rest of the art on the wall, the Hotel Amour at the edge of Paris’ historically racy Pigalle district also has one of the most romantic courtyard restaurants in the City of Love. (If you go for brunch on Valentine’s Day, order the pommes Darphin.)

Photographs via Hotel Amour except where noted.

Designed by and for hipsters who like primary-color bedrooms and flea-market furniture finds, the hotel occupies the former site of a notorious brothel. In an homage to the history of the red-light district, the neon sign is a certain shade of lipstick.

Inside the hotel, the rooms have been designed by avant-garde artists and designers including Pierre Le Tan, Alexandre de Betak, Marc Newson, Sophie Calle, and Stak. Two of the rooms have large outdoor terraces.

By day, the courtyard attracts aspiring bohemians and fashionistas in search of greenery and shade.

Wondering what the hotel rooms look like? For more of the Hotel Amour, see Escape to Love: The Hotel Amour in Paris on Remodelista.
