Karl Lagerfeld is a tastemaker extraordinaire and if you were wondering where Karl likes to sleep, eat, shop and play, now you can follow in his footsteps. Lagerfeld lists his favorite places in Paris, St. Tropez and Monaco. Start your checklist now – maybe if you’re lucky you’ll see Uncle Karl at one of these places…



La Société
“We needed a new place in Saint-Germain, the brothers Costes created it and Alex runs it to perfection.”

Orient Extrême
“You can eat outside when the weather is nice, and it’s just the ideal food for me! ”

La Maison du Caviar
“If you love caviar (which I do), do not bother to go elsewhere. But the crab and salmon are also unique. People also love cheesecake and strudel (I am not entitled to these wonders). George and his team make it a unique place, very Champs Elysees … in the best sense. ”

Café de Flore
“Without the Flore, Saint-Germain would not (or anymore) be Saint Germain. This is THE most excellent left bank café.”


The VIP Room
“This is my nightclub in Paris (as in Saint-Tropez) and I love the restaurant and its decor. Jean Roch knows his job … and friends … ”


“Because of Mme Colette, whom I admire, and her daughter Sarah. This is shopping as an art form. You are so well received here, and you can feel the current wave of fashion, music and other objects. ”

Le Bon Marché
“The name is ironic, but considering the quality of what they sell, it is effectively good value. ”

“Since the lovely Caroline and her sister took over after their grandmother, the flowers are even more beautiful. ”

Saint Tropez


“It’s the heart of Saint-Tropez. I like it even more since the Chanel fashion show we held there. ”

The VIP Room and its restaurant La Gioia
“It’s Saint Tropez in the evening and night. Dining out in the garden is a dream. The food is everything I love: simple. But it’s also my favorite club, especially when Double A (Alexandre Arnault) is DJ! And this is where Baptiste Giabiconi (model discovered by KL – ed.) made a splash this summer with his first song which is not even out yet on the market! ”

Le Quai Joseph
“The place to be. ”

The Banh-Hoi
“My favorite restaurant after La Gioia of my friend Jean Roch. But the Banh Hoi-has a unique cuisine. And I love dining out in that narrow street with little traffic. ”

Le Club 55
“A classic, but I love the restaurant, its ambience and friendly boss.


“Ideal in the genre, the staff is aware of everything. And you can find everything there. ”


La Réserve
“Especially the spa, gym – which are always adored by my guests – and the restaurant: this is an ideal place. Perfection! It is at a hundred meters from the house that I rent in this divine enclosure. I’m perfectly happy and safe. It’s Fort Knox! ”



“The restaurant of the Hotel Metropole which is, for me, the best Japanese on the Riviera. By Robuchon. ”

La Vigie
“The table of the Monte Carlo Beach: for me, it represents Monte Carlo. Moreover, in this place, I love everything: the Monte Carlo Beach, the pool, the hotel, the cabins … ”

Le Grill
“The panoramic restaurant on the top floor of the Hotel de Paris: the view here is magnificent. ”

“The ‘Lipp’ of Monaco, with on top of that the kindness of the boss. ”


“Because of the flowers, but also the lovely owner, Danielle Carlesi. ”
