After two years in the making, Le Baron Chinatown is finally here! Andre Saraiva and Lionel Bensemoun can now add New York as the latest outpost of their ultra-chic Le Baron Brand (with existing locations in London, Paris and Tokyo). It’s no wonder then, why this club - with it’s global reputation, hyped opening delays and heavy French influence - has an exceptionally tough door policy. In fact, it’s wise to purchase Rosetta Stone and take a crash course in French to understand the bar banter of the creme-de-la-trend clientele. In addition, Le Baron has partnered with Absolut and Spin magazine to launch the live music series, “Encore!” Recent acts have included: Heartsrevolution, Theophilus London and most recently - The Virgins (bottom left). Follow @EncoreSessions on Twitter for invites and updates on this series. Le Baron is located at 32 Mulberry Street near Worth Street. Here is the website: http://lebaronchinatown.com/.
