French-inspired Bar Pigalle


Bar Pigalle, a vibrant restaurant and bar tucked inside the Carlton Lofts, is set to open in Detroit’s Brush Park this winter. Helmed by award-winning mixologist Travis Fourmont and certified sommelier Joseph Allerton, the establishment will serve French-inspired cuisine and a mélange of playful cocktails with a spirited wine list. The kitchen will be run by Chef Mike Conrad, most recently of the shuttered Magnet Restaurant, Detroit. Chef Conrad has planned a creative menu of French inspired recipes that will also draw from experiences and flavors he’s worked with over the years. “I’m pulling from the classics, but I’m using everything I have in my toolbox to make it our own.” said Conrad. The historic building, built by legendary American architect Louis Kamper, was the backdrop for one of the hottest jazz scenes in the 1920s and 1930s. The building’s rich history, coupled with that fact that Brush Park was once known as Little Paris, is the perfect location for a fresh, new dining option like Bar Pigalle. “You can have a high level of excellence when it comes to drinks and food and not be pretentious. We want it to be inviting to all,” said co-owner Travis Fourmont. “We want to focus on bringing back that old school hospitality in an appealing and fun way.” Bar Pigalle is located at 2915 John R Street, Detroit. barpigalle.com
