Given the many international visitors descending on Paris this summer, the Champagne house has created a space in the heart of the city for Moët & Chandon fans to eat, drink and be merry.

The cuisine for the new space, Moët in Paris by Allénos, has been orchestrated by Michelin-starred chef and long-time Moët & Chandon ambassador Yannick Alléno.

“Moët in Paris by Allénos blends the grandeur of our gastronomic heritage with the vibrant spirit that defines modern Paris,” the chef explains. “We’re not just creating meals, we’re crafting memories woven into the very heart of the city.”

My pretty duck foie gras terrine and Cow’s milk burrata on an olive powder top the list of starters. Vegetarian proposals on the menu include Sautéed trombetta squash with almonds and curry flower pickles, Green curry of Southern vegetables. Sea bream in cherry leaf, Beef fillet peppered ‘Café de Paris’ also feature, along with a dessert menu including Chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream or Cherry clafoutis.

Decor in the space, a tribute to nature, has been designed by fashion designer and illustrator Charles de Vilmorin. “Moët & Chandon evokes a way of living that particularly inspires me: a fantasy, openness, a sense of celebration and sharing,” de Vilmorin says. “My vision was to offer clients and visitors an immersive experience in a dreamlike and offbeat world that highlights the festive spirit and French whimsy so evident in the House’s image.”

Alongside Allénos and de Vilmorin, long-standing Moët & Chandon cellar master Benoît Gouez directs the liquid offering.

Each evening, Champagne Happy Hour begins at precisely 17:43, a time chosen to reference Moët & Chandon’s founding in the year 1743. The moment also honours the maison’s Toast with Moët, in which a glass is raised with all present.

Sing-along live piano performances; after-work tastings presenting the full range of Moët & Chandon’s finest champagnes; weekend brunches; vibrant DJ sets; and live music sessions are also planned throughout the summer. Moët in Paris by Allénos will also host a highlight each month. Giving away no secrets, Moët & Chandon has revealed only that it will come in the form of a grand event dear to the heart of the House.

Destined for gourmands and festive spirits, locals and tourists alike, Moët in Paris by Allénos opened on 1 June 2024 and remains open throughout the summer. Its exact closing day will be marked by the first day of harvest in Champagne in early autumn.

Moët in Paris by Allénos is located within Beaupassage, 53-57 Rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris, a pedestrian hideaway in the 7th arrondissement just steps from Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It operates all week, from Monday to Sunday, from noon until midnight, for drinks and gatherings; lunch is served from 12:00 to 2:30pm for lunch service and dinner resumes from 5:00pm until 10:30.
