GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Seasons change and so does Geneva. Some restaurants shut down, others open, boutiques change their location, new ones appear.
In the heart of Geneva, well-hidden in a gorgeous inner courtyard, Le Baroque Restaurant just opened its doors. Its predecessor, Le Senso had a classic, Italian, conservative decor with white tablecloths.
It has been completely transformed into a contemporary club-like place.
The canapés are deep purple velour, along the wall hang heavy velour curtains, the lobby bar is covered in leather with metallic studs and the big hanging neon violet crowns light up the place and are reflected in the high ceiling. How pretty when the snow sits on the glass roof!Le Baroque, Geneva
The architecture splits it into two areas, the lobby and the restaurant with its big central bar.
People surround this main bar, where the DJ mixes very well. I had dinner in the lobby, the calmer place of the two.
The main restaurant is a couple of shades darker, the music pumps louder, and you can expect to see people dancing.
The music caters for all tastes and so does the food.
The concept is festive dining, much like La Mangeoire in Courchevel, or Villa Romana in St Tropez.
This is where the pre-party is, and if you’re craving more, dancing continues at Le Baroque Club, just a stone throw away, until the early morning hours.
