Private members’ club 67 Pall Mall to open Bordeaux outpost
May 19, 2023
London, Singapore, Verbier, Beaune… and now Bordeaux.
The private members club aimed at wine lovers has now officially secured the rights to a building in central Bordeaux, with the aim of opening up in 2025.
67 Pall Mall Bordeaux has signed a lease on a property in the Triangle d’Or, 21 Cours de l’Intendance. It’s a stunning building in the heart of the city with a beautiful 18th century façade and an atrium crowned by an impressive 15-metre-wide cupola. One of the key aims of the club will be to give surrounding châteaux and wine merchants a place to showcase their wines.
Grant Ashton, Founder and CEO of 67 Pall Mall said, ‘Bordeaux is at the very heart of the world of wine and the new club provides an amazing location for members and visitors to enjoy a fantastic range of Bordeaux’s wines. The Club will offer a breadth of unique local wines alongside well-known favourites for both members and non-members to enjoy.’
The new club will offer the most extensive wine list in the region, featuring 5,000 by the bottle – 2,000 bottles of which will be selected from local chateaux, 1,000 from the rest of France, and 2,000 wines from the rest of the world. Over 500 wines will be available by-the-glass. Guests will be guided through this list by the largest sommelier team in the region. The impressive food menu will champion seasonal ingredients and delicacies sourced from local partners to ensure the highest quality cuisine. Dishes will take inspiration from traditional French south-western flavours, alongside well-known Club favourites, designed to complement the extensive wine list.
There will also be a public Bar à Vin on the ground floor, while the first and second floors will be for members, with access to a clubroom, bar and several private dining rooms. The fourth floor will offer Members a rooftop terrace with a sweeping view across the historic city.
This makes Bordeaux the next step in the future overseas expansion plans of 67, with an additional five sites set to open in Asia over the next seven years.
