Owners Vincent Sinard and restaurateur Jean-Pierre Gleize from Toulouse, as well as DJ and music impresario Frank Boissy, have pulled together everything they love about French nightclubs: Sultry music plays on the custom sound system and news broadcasts from Paris and Eurosport channels play on the flat-screen TVs, while classic cocktails and bottles of French wine and champagne are proffered, along with small bites such as country pâté ($14), sliced jambon with salted butter, and cornichons ($16), and sharing boards of a luxe caviar spread known as the Saint-Tropez ($110). Steamer trunks make up the DJ’s platform, custom-made in France for the 50-seat lounge, which has 12 more seats at the bar and a VIP room for 20. The bar was named for Gallic novelist, poet and playwright Victor Hugo, and bond mots from fashionable French men and women dot the walls.
