The Experimental Group is inspired by a lifetime of friendship. Three childhood friends; Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros and Olivier Bon embarked on a journey to create trendy cocktail bars in Paris followed by New York, and they quickly made a name for themselves, resulting in a small collection of super chic and vibrant boutique hotels with some of Europe’s best addresses. In all of the hotels, amazing food and cocktails are celebrated by visitors and locals alike making them a point of destination for all types of foodies and discerned travellers. Most of them feature Michelin Star rated chefs and world renowned Mixologists and Baristas. Small and intimate in size but with great personalities, the hotels offer a new kind of locale, one that is rich, cultivated, comfortable, and casual.
Where to celebrate? The Grand Pigalle Hotel (9th district) is in the hip and happening area of Pigalle in Paris near the artsy Montmarte area & the Galeries Lafayette for excellent shopping. Hotel Grands Boulevards (2nd district) is centrally located within a few minuets walk from the Paris Opera House, The Louvre Museum and all the main attractions in Paris. The Henrietta is located in the beloved Covent Garden in London, and Experimental Chalet is in the posh town of Verbier, Switzerland, where you have some of the best skiing in Europe. Menorca Experimental, an agroturismo finca with 34 rooms and 9 private villas is spread on 40 acres of natural beauty on the bohemian Balearic island of Menorca, and Il Palazzo Experimental in Venice is set on the island of Dorsoduro, near the Guggenheim Museum and just a 15 minutes walk to St. Mark’s square, just close enough but far away from the crowd. With its own private garden and its own Vaporetto Stop, it is a favorite providing easy access to all of Venice.
Taking part of the hotels lively gastronomic experience is a must. Everything here revolves around outstanding food and drinks. Hotel des Grands Boulevards’ roof top bar is one of a kind in Paris and Experimental Chalet in Verbier is home to one of Europe’s best “After Ski” hot spots, the legendary Farm Club.
