I was not very impressed with the nightlife at Buddha Bar. It's mostly a place to eat and drink and not a nightclub, which we were told it was. If you're looking to dance it up, this is not the place for you. It's also really dark and pretty crowded.
Dress Code Dress smart!
Atmosphere was very nice, enjoyed the music and the decor. Drinks were nothing special and over priced, the service was terrible, I am in the hospitality industry and what I saw at this bar was ridiculous, the waiter actually stopped us for a second from ordering so he could answer his cell phone. I don’t think these people know what being courteous to their guests is. If it wasn’t for the service A. overall ranking C. ATMOSPHERE IS ALL THEY HAVE GOING FOR THEM.
Dress Code Smart were. (No Jeans or No Sneakers)
was recommended this bar by the concierge at our hotel (Plaza Vendome), and thought we'd check it out.
what a fantastic place!
really chilled out, with comfy seating and excellent drinks and crackers!!
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.
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.
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!
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).
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.
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 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.
