The authenticity of a neighborhood. Excellence in hospitality.
In 2014, EVOK began work on its very first Parisian hotels before embarking on its adventures in Venice, Barcelona, Rome, Madrid, and other iconic cities. Each neighborhood boasts its own individual character, history and feels that this sensory architecture offers up to visitors to interpret as they see fit. Locals and travelers alike.
Earlier this year we met with Emmanuel Sauvage the Co-Founder & Managing Director of Evok Hotels Collection during his visit to Riyadh and sat down to learn more about Evok Hotels. Mr. Emmanuel is passionate about the hotel industry and with a strong personality, he has an authentic feel for hospitality, an absolute understanding of the meaning of service and a new vision of luxury, and welcomes guests as if they were his own.
PALAIS ROYAL RESTAURANT
Set in the Jardin du Palais-Royal gardens, right in the heart of historic, artistic and creative Paris, the Michelin-starred Restaurant du Palais Royal has shown a new face since 2015. Decorated by Christophe Tollemer, it pays homage to its environment. After being bought in November 2014 by Evok Hôtels Collection, who invested nearly 2 million euros, the place has been completely redesigned. In the main room of 50 covers, there are works of art by Pierre Camille-Roy and large bay windows overlooking a garden, recreating a contemporary atmosphere in harmony with the gardens. Upstairs, the two private lounges immerse you in the world of a Parisian apartment, ideal for confidential lunches and intimate dinners “like at home”. In fine weather, the terrace is transformed to welcome guests for lunch and dinner in the heart of the garden. On selected nights in the summer, it thrills to the sounds of Jazz Thursdays, where gypsy jazz aficionados enjoy great music and food. For the cuisine, Chef Philip Chronopoulos focuses on the authentic and makes the ingredients the center of attention.
HAMEAU DE LA VOLIÈRE
Available for rent together or separately, these cottages offer a unique experience through personalized service. Here, the art of living in the French way is unveiled and is distinguished by decoration with contemporary lines mixing both old wood and stone. Set on the mountainside, with privileged access, they can accommodate up to 12 people per chalet. Spread over 5 floors fully equipped with high-tech home automation, the chalets have large rooms, large terraces or balcony. Many areas are dedicated to relaxation: swimming pool, spa, cinema room, billiard, library, large lounge or bar. The Nanuq also has a mezzanine with a corner dedicated to children. Side services, it is possible to call a concierge, a butler, a chef, a sports coach or the babysitting service.
Moments away from the Comédie Française and the Palais Royal gardens, enclosed between layers of history and Hauss – Mann elegance, lies a temple to art and life à la française: the Nolinski. Owned by the EVOK group, this breathtaking, characterful haven bears the hallmark eclectic refinement of decorator Jean Louis Deniot. A minimalist reception made from Carrara marble. Excellence in respecting our guests. Excellence in hospitality. In the quiet discretion of its private apartments, this private home safeguards the secrets of the art of living, in a space where contemporary aesthetics and classical prestige meet enchantment and flair.
Intelligent, cultivated, romantic, BRACH is a true Parisian, with its own codes, a personality, a healthy mind in a healthy body. Its name evokes energy and culture, as well as extravagance and rigor. Generous, homely, it illuminates the values of sharing and balance. A collision with the cultural pioneers of the past blended with a cosmopolitan and modern Paris. There is something of Bauhaus, of Dada and its cohort of Surrealists in BRACH’s genealogy. Multi-cultural influences from Africa, Asia and Brazil are echoed there too. Intimate and open at the same time, BRACH is a combination of contrasts and opposites that complement each other without clashing. A surprising and debonair living patchwork. This mood is reflected in its rich identity, always at the cutting edge.
