Transport yourself to a swanky Parisian nightlife that never was at The De Gaulle, a new upscale Champagne lounge with Paris-themed cocktails from the folks that brought you Hughes Hangar. 

The Washington Avenue jet set can now literally hop over to La Ville-Lumière, given the the bar themed around the “City of Light” and named for France’s Charles de Gaulle airport is located just a few steps across the parking lot from Hughes Hangar lounge.

Done up in a brilliant and brocaded bordello red, The De Gaulle is designed to evoke Paris in its heyday, blending vintage elements with some modern sensibilities. The full bar features more than 50 different Champagnes as well as Champagne-infused cocktails.

The De Gaulle’s Dress Code

Much like Hughes Hangar, its older brother next door which boats a similarly swanky Golden Age of Aviation theme, The De Gaulle enforces a strict and self-informed dress code. Swanky cocktail, evening and professional attire will always be the safer bet. Ages 21 and up only.
