By Shelby Hodge
What: VIP opening of Bar Victor
Where: Bar Victor on Montrose Boulevard
PC Moment: Co-owners Jean-Pierre Gleize and Vincent Sinard, both natives of la belleFrance, opened the doors to their trés chic lounge for a select group of 120 influencers and sophisticates. With crystal chandeliers sparkling overhead and royal blue velvet banquettes and chairs beckoning, the entourage was treated to all things French — champagne, caviar, charcuterie and pate. Add the soulful sounds of chanteuse Lou Lou White and the spins of DJ Les Valseurs and the night had guests thinking “la vie en rose.”
