Hotel Fouquet's Barrière is a 5-star hotel located on the corner of Avenue George V and Avenue des Champs-Elysees in Paris, France, and one of the 7 palatial hotels of the city. The hotel, opened on 6 November 2006, is owned by the Groupe Lucien Barrière[1][2] and managed by Fabrice Moizan and Christian Rossi. Fouquet's Barrière has been developed with the collaboration of the architect Édouard François and designer Jacques Garcia. It is served by the restaurant Fouquet's, headed by chef Jean-Yves Leuranguer, Meilleur Ouvrier de France. The bar, named Le Lucien, was decorated by Garcia, and its head barman is Oliver Meurice.[3]
