Visionary Imagination, 
Global Influences

Since its creation in 1996, Buddha-Bar has been a precursor of a true concept of the Art of Living, with converging influences from the Pacific Rim movement.

Born from the visionary imagination of its founder Raymond Visan, then owner in Paris of the famous Barfly and in perpetual search for novelties through his numerous trips, notably to California, this restaurant-bar-lounge in the very chic Faubourg St Honoré, quickly became a “Must” of Parisian nights.

For more than 20 years, and now with the brand carefully overseen by Tarja Visan, the partner of founder Raymond Visan, the Buddha-Bar lifestyle has continued to grow and spread its positive energy throughout the world in restaurants, hotels, spa, beach clubs, music and more, now in more than 20 locations in global cities including Lyon, London, Dubai, Budapest, Prague, Monte-Carlo, Kiev, Manila, Saint Petersburg, Marrakech, Tbilisi, Baku and Caracas, with more to come, including the launch of Buddha-Bar New York in Summer 2021.
