Named Bar 228 after the hotel''''s address on 228 rue de Rivoli, this place has become "the rendez-vous" of Parisians. The cosy atmosphere of Bar 228 has the warmth of British clubs, perhaps due to the many british guests that visited hotel Le Meurice in its early years. Totally reinterpreted by Philippe Starck in December 2007, the warm and hushed decor remains faithful to its origins with wooden bar stools and leather chairs. The atmosphere is subtly warmed by the crackling glow of tobacco shades and
highlighted by the sparkle of rare crystal decanters, to be filled at leisure.
