Bord de l’eau (“waterside” in French), is not just any bar, it’s an idea that brings love for design and entertainment together.
As you enter you’ll notice a gallery, that’s the Design Factory, check it out without a second thought. It hosts lovely jewelry collections and remarkably designed lamps and sculptures all made by the owners. The gallery’s opening hours are: Mon – Fri 11:00 – 15:00 & 17:00 – 21:00, Sat 11:00 – 18:00.
Next step is the Drink Room, where you will inhale art in any form, from the music to the copper-dressed bar and the cocktails, to the wooden ceiling lights and you will not regret stepping inside.
There is a contemporary and minimal twist to everything, even the menus, created by the “Monoscopic” team, are pleasing to the eye and I always feel like I’m at a Scandinavian urban bar and what’s better than that? What I absolutely love is that I can come here all dressed up and stuff or in sweatpants and still be in sync with Bord de l’eau.
There is a different DJ every night of the week and I can never get enough of the electronic sounds.
Extra tip: that’s a weird one but visit the bathroom. First of all the space is filled with works of art, from a painted skateboard to a 90s themed poster, all worth taking a look and second of all you have to see the mirror turned window and the light creating vivid shadows.
