About Le Georges Restaurant in Paris
The Georges restaurant in Paris is in a unique location on the top floor of the Centre Georges Pompidou with its fabulous panoramic views over the city of lights and was designed and produced by Dominique Jakob and Brendan McFarlane.
First opened in the year 2000 it was designed to be futuristic and in keeping with the ideas first perceived for the Pompidou Centre, yet with its surreal and geometric lines combined with different coves and the light and transparency, Le Georges gourmet restaurant is a great place to relax in a unique and unusual atmosphere.
Even though the dining room itself is minimalistic with lots of white, angular furniture, opaque glass table tops and a single rose positioned on each table, there are also the alcoves and rooms that seem to appear out of nowhere, which are great if you would like a more intimate experience.
The bar at Le Georges is called the Pink Bar due to its colouring, which has been designed within an alcove inside the restaurant and offers a fantastic range of different cocktails to enjoy before your a la carte meal.
But wherever you sit in the main terrace style dining room, you can be sure to get fabulous views of Paris due to the amount of large glass windows that provide a fantastic backdrop, yet the dining experience is even better during an evening with the subtle lighting inside and the city beyond all glittering with its illuminations.
