Bold, new and spectacular, the KONG was born on May 26th 2003.
On May 26, 2023, the KONG celebrates its 20th anniversary.
From the kitchen and decor, nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this UFO that landed on the rooftops of Paris. Laurent Taieb dreamt up this creation, he continues to ensure the proper functioning in order to ensure the smooth running of his beautiful machine. From the very beginning, he has always been accompanied by his faithful talented team. 20 years later, the magic still works, with friends and success waiting in the wings : Philippe Starck took care of the decor, Salem Ghomidh, the kitchen, the decks, and finally Ara Starck, the paintbrushes !
The atmosphere of the KONG bar entwines both the intimate character of a cocktail bar with the refinement and elegance of a luxury hotel bar. KONG infuses a mixture of a relaxed and elegant, classy and entertaining, lively and friendly atmosphere. On the 5th floor of a Haussmann building, every window boasts a different view: the Pont Neuf, Henri Sauvage’s Art Deco design of the Samaritan building, Art Nouveau by Frantz Jourdain, the Seine, the Louis Vuitton HQ...

For over 20 years, weightless on the 5th floor of a Haussmann building, Kong has found its place in the heart of the Parisian night scene with a demanding musical programming.
You will find an exclusive selection of DJs distilling all genres of (good) music with, here and there, just the right amount of classics, in a most effective New Yorker’s open style format. An unusual atmosphere for a unique venue where Parisians, foreign costumers and regulars all gather to connect, exchange and share.
