Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, Paramour offers an unparalleled experience with breathtaking views of the city skyline and iconic San Antonio River. Now, “San Antonio’s Most Playful Rooftop Bar,” has created a unique and sophisticated dining experience, Colette at the Phipps, inspired by French novelist, journalist, and performer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, reflecting the trailblazing spirit of the legendary French writer. 

The menu, artfully created by Chef Rodrigo Landa, features dishes blending the flavors and cooking styles of France, Latin America, and Japan, just as Colette blended the cultural and societal norms of her time in her writing. With dishes like roasted portobello carpaccio and burrata, chicharron dumplings with salsa verde, and flambe burnt cheesecake, Colette is the jewel of San Antonio, capturing the allure of high-end bars in the comfort of the South. 

The dining room is designed to embody the elegance and sensuality of Colette’s work, with plush seating, warm lighting, and a relaxed, yet intimate atmosphere. Patrons will be transported to a world of rich flavors and textures, just as they are transported to a world of passion and sensuality through Colette’s writing.

The bar offers a meticulously curated selection of premium spirits, craft beers, an extensive wine list, and a wealth of signature cocktails made by mixologists. Colette is the perfect backdrop for date night, celebrations with family, or catching up with old friends.

Housed in the same space as Paramour (102 9th St. Floor 4, San Antonio, TX 78215), Colette offers an evening of elegance and refinement. The restaurant has officially opened its doors and is currently taking reservations here. Colette will be open Wednesday through Saturday, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Anyone looking to continue the French theme in San Antonio can do so at Brasserie Mon Chou Chou in the Pearl District near the entrance of the hotel Emma at 312 Pearl Parkway Building 2, Suite 2104. The eatery serves quintessential French comfort food showcasing simple, earthy, flavorful dishes from regions throughout France.
