The rebirth of an iconic property is about to take place as the Société des Bains de Mer recently announced that the new Café de Paris will open its doors later this month on Tuesday, November 14th.
Known worldwide, the legendary brasserie, located at Place du Casino, will be able to accommodate a total of 500 guests, both indoors and outdoors.
Strategically situated as the place to see and be seen, the renovation project was originally scheduled to last just over a year, but delays added more than a few months to the original deadline.
The €55 million renovations and refurbishment, which have necessitated a complete closure of the historic eatery since March 2022, have been extensive, to say the least.
On the website of the Société des Bains de Mer, Éric Gorjux, the establishment's director, gives details of what you'll be able to discover. "In each of our reflections, we kept in mind the establishment's past, while projecting ourselves into the future. A real exercise in style! More than a simple renovation, we're rebuilding the building, with additional floors," he explains.
Société des Bains de Mer's flagship brasserie will be spread over two levels. The interior of the restaurant will seat 300 people. The outside terrace will be able to seat another 200 people. All this, "from breakfast until late at night", adds Éric Gorjux, "to keep pace with the Casino Café de Paris next door." At the helm of this major transformation are two great architects, Monegasque Alexandre Giraldi and Frenchman Alain-Charles Perrot. Above the Café de Paris, the Amazonico restaurant will eventually open its doors. This will take place in spring 2024.
Locals and visitors alike will not have to wait long now to discover what will surely be the next and longstanding hotspot in Monaco.
