Embodying over 100 years of pure Parisian hedonism, Maxim’s upholds its tradition of ‘French art de vivre’ with a wonderful display of teasers for every sense. Its red and gold trademark touches sparkle sumptuously from every corner while the nod to Belle Epoque painter, Georges Goursat, continues throughout. This really is heritage boutique at its best. Chocolates, foie gras and champagne are all on the menu, and there’s dinner, drinks and dancing for those lucky enough to gain access. The ‘Social Club’ kicks off from 10.30pm in the Bar Imperial, attracting artists, writers and their followers for impromptu gigs, dancing and, well, drinking. And its strictly invitation only to the ‘Supernature Night’ that happens just once a month on a Saturday.
