    BUDDHA BAR: For pure decadence

    by universalgypsy Written Oct 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The music is "world chill" and the atmosphere is indulgent and opulent. This is a place to slowly sip your cocktail and soak in the decadent vibe. I didn't eat here, so cannot comment on the food. The drinks however were potent, and the people were friendly and beautiful. This is not a place to go if you're feeling a little less than fabulous.

    Dress Code: Be stylish, but in a nonchalant way.

    Buddha Bar: Have a drink at one of Paris' most famous bars

    by SonOfLusus Updated Aug 27, 2004

    I really enjoyed my couple of hours at the famous Buddha Bar. I did not eat, but had a couple of drinks. They were a little expensive, but very good. The cocktails were delicious. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the music relaxing. They sell CDs at their own store by the entrance.

    BUDDHA BAR: Amazing!

    The most amazing bar aesthetically! The bar is in a circular deck with low level lcandle lighting and dark wood. Comfy couches and chairs are difficult to come by but I got lucky. In the background enchanting asian/newage techno plays. You can look down on the giant buddha that sits aside from the dinner area which is downstairs. It is a very romantic place but space and low level lighting makes it difficult to have a conversation. Great martinis for 18 euros!?

    Dress Code: Defintally dress up for this bar!

    Buddha

    Local muy bien recreado. Ambiente guapo. Copas a 12 Euros cada. No compres los CDs de Buddha en el local porque son carisimos comparados con los de mercado.
    Por lo demas, bastante lleno de gente.

    Dress Code: Creo que No jeans, pero vi a gente en vaqueros (los menos).

    BUDDHA BAR: A very high coolness factor!

    Paris cool

    Very hip and cool, dark, smoky, make that very smoky, but this is France so you live with that last part...prices are equally wild...12euro cocktails?!?!...again, you are paying for the ambience and the awesome soundtrack, and even a package or two of matches.

    Dress Code: One of those *if you have to ask, don't bother* details...the downstairs, expensive dining area was definitely for the moneyed, fashion-show crowd...in the ringside, upstairs bar area however, we saw dressy casual, including sweaters and jeans. Go figure.

    The Buddha-Bar

    by OrlandoBR Updated Jan 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Amazing place with good food & drinks, and a fantastic ambiance, with a big Buddha statue looking at you. Sophisticated, dark, lit by candles, exclusive music (they have their own cool music and sell expensive CDs with it)... If you get crazy to buy the CDs (you'll probably love the music there), wait to buy them at FNAC, where they cost €31, instead of the €46 they charge on location.

    Dress Code: Dress up

    A very hip and big bar that serves food during the day and expensive drink during the night. Nonetheless the place looks very nice in its oriental style and during the day it's a cool place to unwind.

    Dress Code: Neat, definitely!

    Le Buddha Bar : Hmm… no prizes...

    Le Buddha Bar : Hmm… no prizes for guessing what dominates the floor space inside this ultra-cool Parisian imbibery. You might think it’s the Buddha that attracts the oh-so-trendy set here, as it’s always flattering to stand next to someone more rotund, but there’s more to it than that. A popular haunt with drinkers and diners alike, it’s easy to while away the hours here over cocktails or with a dish from their well-balanced menu.

    Buddha Bar and Restaurant

    Bar Oriental style upstairs. Restaurant Asian / cross over downstairs.
    A trendy public. Keep eyes open for celebrities.
    The best ambient music in town!

    Dress Code: Stylish dress code. Guys, leave those jeans at home!
    No entry fee usually, but quite pricy bar.

    BUDDHA- BAR. It is a very nice place to have a drink and dance! Really well decorated with buddhas and dragons and oriental decoration. Music is fantastic and you can buy the cd's.
