Billed as a restaurant / tea-room / bar / lounge, the Music Hall is two floors of style and no substance, "trying too hard" made real.
The décor is white lacquer with LED lighting that slowly changes colour. This means that at many points during your dinner you will look like something out of a haunted house, bright green or lurid pink. It's funny for five minutes, and then annoying for a couple of hours. It may actually be the closest you'll get to Vegas in Paris.
The food is called 'gastronomique', which here means 'little on your plate and a large bill to follow'. Try it out at lunchtime if you want to limit the burn. And whether you're there at midday or in the evening, expect to be surrounded by shouty show-offs with permatans and attitude. Subtle it is not.
The renowned Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is home, from February 24 until August 20, 2017, to the exhibition “Karel Appel. Art as Celebration!”.
“Karel Appel. Art as Celebration!” is an exhibition that sheds light on twenty-one works of art by the Dutch painter and sculptor Karel Appel (1921 – 2006).
The works on display, which are actually a donation from the Karel Appel Foundation, include some of the best paintings and sculptures that significantly marked the career of Appel from his CoBrA years until his death in 2006.
On the occasion of this exhibition, attendees will get the chance to view the artist’s famous Carnet d'art psychopathologique as well as many other veritable masterpieces including ceramic sculptures from the 1950s and big installations from the 1970s and 1990s.
The Hotels Paris Champs-Elysées are located at a short walking distance from the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
