Les Bains Paris is a recently opened luxury hotel located within a building that formerly housed the city's answer to New York's Studio 54. Formerly serving as a nightclub from 1978 onward, Les Bains Paris has now been overhauled into an upscale accommodation.
Opened in 1885, the building was originally a private thermal bathhouse owned by the prestigious Guerbois family. During its days as a hip nightclub in the 1980s and 1990s, the spot was frequented by the likes of David Bowie, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Jean-Michel Basquiat and many more.
The decision to transform this historic building into a luxury hotel makes sense given that the property has always catered to the luxury market and the building's history will serve as its best advertisement.
