Eiffel Tower’s Jules Verne restaurant decor to go on auction

Andrea Divirgilio / August 7, 2012

Steeped in tradition, extremely open minded and exceedingly generous, the essence of Parisian elegance, Le Jules Verne, a legendary restaurant in a unanimously recognized Eiffel Tower in Paris is known for offering one-of-a-kind dining experience at 125-meters above ground level. Boasting the most beautiful views over Paris, it’s the city’s most intimate and inviting dining rooms, playing with the natural light of day and city lights of night. Le Jules Verne’s modernist black-and-white décor which once hosted world’s most discreet and fine diners from 1983 to 2007, until top chef Alain Ducasse took over the restaurant, will now be up for grabs in an auction on September 27th. However, it’s not new when things closely associated with Eiffel Tower have on the auction blocks, as we have earlier seen the sale of Eiffel Tower’s spiral staircase piece and other Eiffel Tower auctions held by the French House Drouot.

Paris’s Drouot-Montmartre auction house is yet again back with another auction offering a chance to grab a piece of Eiffel Tower. Scheduled to be held on 27th of September, the sale will feature items like porcelain black-and-white crockery, a black-colored lacquered grand piano and steel-framed chairs with wheels, among its dozens of other notable lots.

Further, design buffs will also get a chance to bid for the complete former furnishings of the Eifeel Tower’s brasserie Altitude 95, which has been named after its height above the sea level.

Speaking more about the Paris landmark and unrivalled dine venue, the Michelin-starred restaurant offers modern French menu, and is placed among the top restaurants in France (literally too, it is 125 metres high in the Eiffel tower).
