It got its name because of the large statue of Buddha that dominates the restaurant. The interior design of the place also gives off that feeling that you are inside an oriental Buddhist temple. Given its concept, the eclectic choice of music that embodies the restaurant, the exotic cuisine served, and the avant-garde interiors, Buddha Bar promises its customers a truly original experience that you won’t forget.

Buddha-Bar has been the precursor to a true ‘Art of Living’ concept, with confluent influences from the Pacific Rim. The restaurant is also known for its eclectic musical identity that revolves around the genre of electro-ethnic-tribal sounds, played by their resident DJ. Joseph Alturas. Because their music has captured the Parisian and international clientele, the George V record label was created and there are now over 16 compilation records out there.

The restaurant is divided into three floors – the main dining area, lounge, and roof deck, and can accommodate up to 500 pax indoors and 80 at the al fresco dining area.
