In its newest re-invention of self, this legendary club is now a Luxury Hotel, but full on. However, paying respect to its past, it still hosts a club downstairs, where it all started, and has even preserved the historical swimming pool from whence the venue gets its name (Bains means "bath" in French). Something else legendary and historical this world-renowned property kept throughout its head-to-toe transformation is the black and white checkered dance floor. It's a holdover from tne then-youngster (we're talking back in the 70s) Philippe Starck's early design innovations. The lobby-level bar is elegant and perfect for a quiet evening drink when you feel like getting dressed up and having a smart cocktail.
