About Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-Bar

Buddha Bar concept was born in France in 1996, thanks to the visionary imagination of its founder Raymond & Tarja Visan – owner of legendary Paris hangout Barfly – opened Buddha Bar Paris on the chic Faubourg St Honoré.

Combining a restaurant, bar and lounge, the concept took aesthetic and culinary inspiration from the exotic cultures of the Pacific Rim coupled with Western touches inspired by his numerous trips to California. All dishes are prepared according to our “Family Style” concept: they can be shared among guests, and are served in large dishes rather than individual plates.

In the subsequent decades, the concept has flourished, with its unique vibe now found in destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Today, Buddha-­‐Bar and its sister brands have a combined presence in more than 25 countries, with further launches planned. Its portfolio of restaurants, beaches, spas and hotels combine French elegance with neo-­‐Asian design elements including rich colour palettes, sleek furnishings and plush, opulent textiles. A permanent emulation reigns supreme within the Buddha-­‐Bar world that is a place where routine does not exist. Service and all events give rhythm to the seasons and the Buddha Bar life. Buddha Bar is the epitome of the art of living and unforgettable experiences.

Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-­‐Bar is a concept based on unifying philosophy -­‐ to create a living space offering various experiences. Thus the guest is immersed in different yet complementary atmospheres such as the relaxing lounge bar, beach area, the culinary pleasures from the restaurant and the good music vibes distilled by resident DJs under the sun & star. The menu features Coastal Mediterranean cuisine for fresh and delicious bites, as well as Asian favourites, perfect for eating alone or sharing with friends. Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-Bar is the ideal surroundings for spending all day and evening, late into the night, in a relaxing to awakening to a festive atmosphere.
