An Iberian experience when you eat at Hotel Banke

A stone’s throw from the Galeries Lafayette, the Opéra district and theatres invites you live on Spanish time.

A touch of extravagance, a place for relaxation, this Derby Collection hotel revamps the code of Parisian high-end hotels and asserts its originality, drawing on Iberian culture.

Restaurant Josefin and LolaBar
The Restaurant Josefin and the LolaBar bear witness to this ‘Iberian flavour’ available to those who are looking for somewhere out of the ordinary.

Heading up the kitchens is French chef Georges Pierre, who, thanks to his experience in Derby hotels in Barcelona and Madrid, has put together a menu where Spanish cuisine combines nimbly with French technique and Asian flavours.

Gourmet treats on Spanish time
Pierre’s simple menu favours the pleasure and real taste of quality products. A large choice of starters, that could be a meal in themselves, consisting of risottos, fish and meat dishes, appeal to both the faithful lunchers from the nearby offices and the night owls who take advantage of the last sitting at 11.15 pm or make do with tapas in the bar.

After-work drinks and happy hours at the LolaBar
At teatime and cocktail hour the LolaBar is where it’s all happening. A selection of pastries, baked daily by the new pastry chef just arrived from the Ritz in the afternoon, and a parade of tapas and cocktails surprises the evening, delighting shoppers taking a break and office workers who love an after-work drink at a chic venue.
