Some know it as a restaurant, but to us Kong will always be a hopping supper club with house DJs spinning a menagerie of lounge anthems in a space designed by Starck that's a mix of 17th Century decadence and pop-Japanese graffiti art. Visitors arrive to a glittery backdrop with bar and dining room under a glass dome with walls adorned in Hello Kitty bric-a-brac and in-set LCD screen playing Japanese anime. Furnishings mix Starck's signature tufted sofas and Louis XVI barstool with eccentric prints and colors that befit the under-40 Paris glam crowd.


Starck-designed supper club mixes French imperial style and Japanese design for lively bar and lounge scene.

Last Word

Not just for after dark, a glass-enclosed rooftop offers a picturesque lunch spot with playful lounge vibe overlooking Pont Neuf.
