Moët & Chandon, along with Chef Yannick Alléno, are delighted to open the doors of an ephemeral celebration of French culture, fashion, and conviviality: Moët in Paris by Allénos. The restaurant, bar and event space in the heart of the city promises a season-long soirée brimming with refined culinary experiences staged to whimsical decor, all with a dash of iconic Parisian flair. Given the many international visitors descending on Paris during summer, 

Moët & Chandon offers both locals and visitors an elegant, imaginative, and joyful gathering place where celebration is always in order — whether reuniting with old acquaintances or forging new friendships. 

The cuisine is orchestrated by Michelin-starred chef and long-time Moët & Chandon ambassador Yannick Alléno; long-standing Moët & Chandon Cellar Master Benoît Gouez directs the sparkling libations; and, the fantastical decor is infused with the sensibilities of fashion designer and illustrator Charles de Vilmorin. In addition to this French savoir-vivre, there is also French savoir-fête — or, rather, the art of partying well — on the menu: Champagne Happy Hour, tasting events, DJ sets, surprise celebrity appearances, and live music sessions.

Moët in Paris by Allénos blends the grandeur of our gastronomic heritage with the vibrant spirit that defines modern Paris,’

explains Yannick Alléno

“It’s a place where each glass of Moët & Chandon is not just a toast, but also a celebration of craftsmanship, community, and the shared joy that only such timeless elegance can inspire. We’re not just creating meals, we’re crafting memories woven into the very heart of the city — each one as effervescent and unforgettable as this champagne.

As a creative force in French fashion, Charles de Vilmorin creates an equally unforgettable setting through a world of vibrant colors and enchanting flowers; he pays subtle tribute to nature, without which the House could not exist. Ecstatic faces emerge from graphic murals on the walls, while abstract light plays through the windows; the space is a playful and creative bubble, enveloping and uplifting visitors immediately in their enjoyment of the moment and their connection with others.

“Moët & Chandon evokes a way of living that particularly inspires me: a fantasy, openness, a sense of celebration and sharing,” affirms the designer Charles de Vilmorin. “My vision was to offer clients and visitors an immersive experience in a dreamlike and offbeat world that highlights the festive spirit and French whimsy so evident in the House’s image.” 

The restaurant is designed to spark conversation and goodwill among guests, enjoying gourmet specials created by Chef Yannick Alléno himself. As a nexus of genuine connection, at this pop-up glances are exchanged, conversations begin and the clinking of Moët & Chandon glasses continues to uplift the evening. Culinary mastery, effervescent champagne, and joyful togetherness blend to perfection.
