George V Paris

The Four Seasons George V in Paris is spectacular. As each day drew to a close, we would end our evenings at either Le Bar or La Galerie. Both were elegant, yet  intimate.

Decorated exquisitely,  as we had come to expect of the Four Seasons, Le Bar presented us with the perfect opportunity to recall the highlights of the day and plan for the next!

Considered the heart and soul of the George V, La Galerie is the definition of elegance and exuberance. Its walls showcase Flemish Tapestries and 19th Century paintings, while the lavish furniture and artifacts are something to be marveled by guests.

La Galerie just happens to be the perfect locale for people watching. My husband and I could have happily sat there for hours, merely absorbing the ambience.

“Hmmm.  What should we do tomorrow? Sleep in, or enjoy room service on the terrace overlooking the Eiffel Tower?  Decisions, decisions!”

NOTES

Did you know that many years ago the very thrifty oil tycoon, Jean-Paul Getty, who made the Georges V his residence while in Paris,  asked the barman to decant the contents of two magnums of champagne that were given to him as a gift. Getty wanted the champagne to be poured into six different bottles, so his friends wouldn’t drink the entire bottle at one sitting.
