Mondrian’s debut in Bordeaux also marks the first European outpost for celebrated Japanese Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who is behind the menu and concept for the hotel’s restaurant Morimoto Bordeaux. Bringing the essence of Japan to the hotel, the menu features sushi, sashimi and Chef Morimoto’s signature dishes such as Peking duck, alongside oysters from the Arcachon Basin and French desserts. Once a month, the lounge will play host to an intimate gastronomic table, where guests can enjoy a wine/sake pairing specially created by Chef Morimoto and his team. The joyful, festive spirit of the Izakaya culture reigns here – The cellar is a tribute to the origins of the building, housing over 10,000 bottles, including prestigious Bordeaux wines alongside a curated international selection.
For those looking to relax, the Mondrian Bordeaux Les Carmes’ wellness area – with a swimming pool, spa, hammam, sauna and fitness room – is a welcoming place bathed in light and dedicated to holistic well-being. The hotel has partnered with French contemporary cosmetology brand Codage, renowned for creating bespoke blends of active ingredients tailored to each skin type, to provide spa treatments.
Mondrian Bordeaux Les Carmes embodies the essence of Mondrian with its vibrant location, visionary design and imaginative dining concept, and also demonstrates that progressive thought and new perspectives can be rooted in a reverence for heritage and history. Perfectly capturing the “Spirit of the Age”, Mondrian Bordeaux Les Carmes maintains an intrinsic link to the past, whilst keeping an eye very much on the future.
