Faust is a newly opened terrace area under the Pont Alexandre, which is making some noise due to the air of mystery that surrounds what’s to come in terms of their official agenda and clientele. Consisting of 2000m2 of space by this coveted part of the Seine, an authentic Airstream caravan is at one end for easy-cheezy snacks and for those not wanting to lounge on the comfortable chairs, martini in hand provided by the smarter Faust bar. A soon to be launched, er, opened gastro-restaurant with (bistro prices apparently), will join the present set up. The cultural/performance/artistic and stage area will soon be added to this to boot and talking of boats, well, one will be moored very very soon and just facing the terrace itself. This project has obviously been planned to the last detail but it wont be the only boat on this part of the Seine, because other boats are following this initiative albeit with a different feel, such as the Rosa Bonheur* team who have enlisted a specialized team of architects with regard to floating venues….but until then we’ve got our eyes tuned on Faust and what it promises to deliver in the future in terms of “shaken-not-stirred-factor”
