One of the newest hotels in Paris is the Kube, which is in a “rough” area of Paris (even by my standards), but ideally placed for those who want to be near the Eurostar terminal at Gare du Nord. Their gimmick attraction is the Ice Bar, or, as they write, “the city’s first ice bar”. As if Paris needs more than one place where it’s so cold that you’re given special polar gloves and jacket on arrival and only allowed to stay 30 minutes (with all-you-can-drink vodka out of ice shot glasses, 38 euros).
