Pour Vous Opens on Melrose

Live la vie en rose at a Frenchy drinking den


A Nightlife Nursery Rhyme

This little piggy danced at Smoke and Mirrors.
This little piggy bowled at The Spare Room.
And this little piggy went “oui, oui, oui” all the way to new Parisian-themed lounge Pour Vous.

The brainchild of brothers Jonnie and Mark Houston (Harvard & Stone, La Descarga), the Melrose Avenue watering hole sits on hallowed nightlife ground (former incarnations include Forty Deuce and Small’s K.O.).

Sip dangereux-sounding cocktails (Black Magic, Catacomber) concocted by master mixologists Pablo Moix and Steve Livigni amid decor that could have come straight off the Moulin Rouge set (crystal chandeliers, plush red banquettes, white marble bar).

Feeling un petit hunger pang? The menu provides decadent fare such as oysters, chocolate, and, bien sur, wine and cheese. On the patio, a beautifully refurbished club car awaits both illicit tete-a-tetes and raucous revelry.

Prepare to go hog wild.
