good times.

clientele

myu pulls a moneyed yet laid-back crowd of creative professionals, expats and the occasional jolly lawyer type. totally fun while it lasts...

service

goodlooking, efficient and knowing how to pour a vodka cranberry.

interior

a rather brilliantly understated interior. take a dilapidated 1950s ground floor space. divide it in two [creating a separate bar and restaurant section] and insert two parallel rows of black metal arches. cover the arches with black mesh fabric...et voilà!

most of rue gouraud's bars try hard to be cool and happening. one that effortlessly succeeds is myu. although not totally void of pretentiousness, it's the understated starchitectural interior of this popular bar + restaurant that quickly wins you over.
