The result of a partnership between Jean-Louis Costes and Liaigre, restaurant La Société is as discreet as it is sought-after. Located at the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés across from a church of the same name, La Société embodies the cultivated, refined, cosmopolitan spirit of the neighborhood, which was once the epicenter of publishing and literature.
Beyond the entryway, the atmosphere evokes both a French brasserie and a British gentleman’s club. Across three stories, raw wood, marble, mahogany, and leather come together to form a muted, restrained aesthetic that complements the restaurant’s refined, deliberately timeless style. Browns, beiges, gray, and white help create a sense of tranquility and warmth upon entering.

Despite the subtle visual symphony at play, the interior remains a space practical for public use, thanks to the quality and durability of materials and their maintenance. A masterpiece that rewrites the rules of Parisian brasserie architecture into a style that is simple yet modern.
