Le party comes to the Big Apple

The rumours have finally been put to rest regarding Parisian nightclub, Le Baron, opening in New York. It’s recently been confirmed that Le Baron, notorious for their uber-exclusive parties, will be making New York their newest residence and attracting a whole new slew of trendy urbanites.

For many years, popular Parisian nightclub, Le Baron has been the place to be seen by the who’s who in both fashion and music. Le Baron’s roster of partiers includes the likes of everyone from the Olsen twins, Purple Magazine’s Olivier Zahm, French duo Justice, Lindsay Lohan and countless supermodels. Le Baron owner, Andre Saraiva also known as the “king of parties”, has taken his Le Baron party train from Paris to Tokyo and now, New York.

Yello Karaoke Lounge in N.Y, soon to be Le Baron.

This will not be the first time Andre will be throwing parties in New York. During a past fashion week, he opened a pop-up Le Baron at The Bowery Hotel. Andre also is part owner of the Beatrice Inn in New York, but wants to officially give Le Baron a permanent New York home. It’s been reported that Le Baron will be taking over Yello Karaoke Lounge, in between Chinatown and the Financial District. The location itself doesn’t seem so grand, but that’s where a talented party-planner comes in and creates an atmosphere, as well as generates a buzz. Andre is clearly just the man for the job in turning this drab karaoke bar into one of New York’s places to be. Andre shares, “underground culture goes on at night. The night is not a moment in time; it’s a space to create.”. Create away Mr. Andrea, as we are excited to see what you do with New York’s party scene.
