While a trip to Paris might be on your bucket list, a trip to downtown Detroit this winter might be enough to hold you over.

Mixologist Travis Fourmont and sommelier Joseph Allerton will bring a sip of France back to Little Paris, aka Brush Park.



Bar Pigalle will be opening this winter inside the Carlton Lofts at 2915 John R Street. The new bar and restaurant will serve dishes and craft cocktails inspired by France, and will also have a French forward selection of wines.

“You can have a high level of excellence when it comes to drinks and food and not be pretentious. We want it to be inviting to all,” said Fourmont in a press release. “We want to focus on bringing back that old school hospitality in an appealing and fun way.



The name is inspired by a Parisian trip Fourmont took where he visited the Quarter Pigalle neighborhood, an area with a vibrant nightlife and cocktail bar scene.

Currently, there is no official opening date.
