Where’s a bookstore, two cocktail menus, three centuries of French culture, and a music kiosk?
The 2,700-square-foot 17th-century townhouse at Boulevard Saint-Germain is now home to historians, restaurateurs, and It’s now home to Klavan, a five-story cocktail mecca dreamed up by Berkthologist Frank Audu.
At a quick glance from the street, you might think this is just another fancy cocktail bar, with stools neatly arranged around the wooden bar and booths clustered along the wood-paneled walls.
But from the entrance there’s a 1: 15 scale model of the building, which also includes an even smaller replica of the building itself, and once inside you’ll find the first Klavin bar (seats 17) created by Audu.
A surreal continuation of the world begins.
