The place was closed back in 1989, as there were plans to replace things with a new housing development. Well that never really happened, and spray paint kind of became the pool’s main attraction. Years later, over $100 million has been poured into the project to renovate and rescue the facility, and it just reopened as part club, part pool, and part hotel all while retaining a little Art Deco love.
If you have a chance to visit, it’s not just the pool and the architecture that’s the attraction, as there’s now a spa, a gym, and bar right on the roof. Pricing might be the only drawback of what’s been done here, as a day in the pool can set you back as much as $245. So if you're in the neighborhood—it calls the 16th arrondissement home—swing by and check things out while it still has its new pool smell.
