Le Drugstore: a contemporary version of a famous Parisian bar & restaurant

There is a new restaurant and bar named Le Drugstore, located on the ground floor of the iconic shopping and entertainment complex at 133 Avenue de Champs-Élysées, in Paris.

Originally the restaurant was founded in 1958 by Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet, founder of the world-renowned advertising agency Publicas Group. The restaurant called Public Drugstore ‘was designed to bring American consumer convenience and bar culture to the Parisian public’. Design Research Studio / Tom Dixon is responsible for the complete strip-out of the interior in order to simplify and enhance it.

The lighting is also done by designer Tom Dixon. For example his remarkable copper Melt Surface ceiling lamp, and the Stone Pendant lamp are used.

The result is impressive we think. A new Parisian highlight to visit this year.
