Baccarat Gallery Museum
Housed in the former mansion of art patron Marie-Laure, Viscountess de Noailles, this Place des Ètats-Unis museum is frequently used for swank private functions. Designed by Philippe Stark, this gallery showcases exceptional pieces from the Decorative Movement, such as “talking” Baccarat vases and glassware used by Pope John Paul II. The entrance, which is filled with mirrors, has a crystal chandelier half-dipped in an aquarium, while a connecting rotunda features Gérard Garouste's frescoes depicting the elements Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. The Cristal Room Baccarat, the museum's restaurant located in the mansion's former dining room, is one of the priciest eateries in Paris and helmed by Chef Guy Martin.
