In Paris, sleep and dance at Les Bains Douches!
Les Bains Douches in Paris, a legendary 1980s club and iconic temple of crazy partying in the capital, is enjoying a rebirth of some sorts. Day and night, Parisians are now hurrying to this fashionable spot. Same address, same staircase, same avant-garde trend, just “new and improved” with a makeover from the ground up that includes a 5-star hotel with 39 rooms and intelligent "underground" design. Of course, there are a few nods to past glories such as the orange velvet bench bed, a tribute to Andy Warhol, and the black carpet dressed in foliage, a hymn to Serge Gainsbourg. On the ground floor, the restaurant and lounge bar attract a select crowd, from breakfast until late in the evening. From Thursday evening onwards, the party is in the disco. Les Bains Douches wakes up for night-times of madness!
Berlin, rock-n-roll attitude at the Michelberger Hotel
Conceived by designer Werner Aisslinger, the Michelberger is all you expect from Berlin: experimental, underground and a little a bit crazy! Located in a former factory of the Friedrichshain district, the 119-room hotel is brimming with originality and creativity. From the lobby and its XXL sofas, to available musical instruments in the communal areas, the Whiskey Room bar open all day with a broad choice of homemade cocktails and its famous café that hosts concerts every night with high-end programming, this is the place to be for night owls! The rooms have a unique style in the spirit of your favourite flea market with furniture found at the Mauerpark. You can even sleep six people in a few of them. Let the party begin!
The Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas is simply the best!
Less than a four-hour drive from Los Angeles, you can live to the sound of music till the end of the night in this 1,500-room party temple. Casino, nightclub, XXL outdoor pool, fitness centre, eight restaurants, six bars and even a juice bar or two. Happiness is at your fingertips for you, party goers of the planet. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is a place full of possibilities, especially on “pool night” weekends, which bring together hundreds of people. The principle? Dance and drink in a swimsuit around the pool. The concept is a hit in Las Vegas and the Hard Rock was the first to the plate!
Los Angeles, trendy parties at Mama Shelter
Whether in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Rio or Los Angeles, Mama Shelter keeps creating a buzz. Which would be the best for a good party though? The one in Los Angeles, just steps from Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of the City of Angels. At nightfall, its 360° rooftop is in full swing, regulars meet to admire the sunset, nestled in large sofas with a great view of the legendary HOLLYWOOD letters on Mount Lee, or to play table football while listening to the DJs of the moment. Coolness reigns supreme with the common areas decorated by local artists who were given carte blanche to draw and write all over: graffiti on the ceiling, trompe l'oeil in the elevator, neon lights on the terrace. This festive and colourful signature style is reflected in the decor of the restaurant and bar as well. With some serious positive energy, the 70 rooms with XXL beds are welcoming and fun – you can take your photo while laughing with their trademark night masks in the shape of panda heads. Early-to-bed? Go elsewhere, as this is a place for fun!
