The Ritz in Paris Closes Doors…

… for now the Ritz in Paris has closed its doors for a two year renovation project. Please see a copy of the notice that was emailed to me this morning. I will miss the bar – home to a great spot for good martinis in town. C’est la vie – they will be back!

Dear Ms. Pilon,
The legendary Ritz Paris has closed its doors to embark on a two-year restoration program.

Rooms, suites, restaurants and bars, the spa and the famous Ritz Escoffier cooking school will all be carefully restored and recreated under the direction of the internationally renowned interior designer Thierry W. Despont.

We will ensure that the charm and personality of the Ritz Paris is kept alive and that we continue to satisfy even the most discerning travelers.

We certainly hope that you will follow our progress on or through our social media channels.

All of us at the Ritz Paris are looking forward with great anticipation to welcoming you back in 2014 for the reopening of your home in Paris.


Christian A. Boyens
General Manager Frank J. Klein

Au revoir Ritz Paris,
rendez-vous in 2014

    The end of an era… Even though they say they are reopening – and I’m sure the new digs will be fab, it will be different.

      I was thinking the exact same thing! It surely won’t be the same. Why change that magnificent bar? What happened to your favorite bartender there? Did he lose job? I think about these things!
