Opened in 1885, Les Bains Douches, built and operated by the Guerbois family, became the first and the most renowned bathhouse of the French capital. It was a temple; a space sanctified to massages and delights of Japanese, Russian, Turkish and sulphur baths.
In 1978, this unique place transformed clubbing into an art and rapidly became a cultural phenomenon; a temple of the Parisian night. It was a centre of gravity, the eye of the storm, a crossroads of fashion, media, show business and arts.
Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Yves Saint Laurent, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, etc. The list is endless.
In 2011, to reinvent and save this icon of Parisian nightlife, La Société des Bains was born under the leadership of Jean-Pierre Marois. This, then, is the very first page of the new history of Les Bains.
The Hotel Les Bains has an unique personality. The decorations are carefully selected materials including white marble and precious woods, as well as custom-fine furniture, designed in tribute to distinguished guests.
Between the pockets of Joy Division vinyl, the mermaids of Les Bains who lended their good cheer to the "do not disturb" sign; and a beauty box concocted with care, the rooms and suites of Les Bains transcend style. In other words, Les Bains are truly unique.
