Moët Hennessy has unveiled CRAVAN, which its backers describe as “a unique venue celebrating French art de vivre, exceptional cocktails and culture in the heart of iconic and literary Parisian district.” Moët Hennessy is the wines and spirits division of luxury powerhouse LVMH (Paris), while CRAVAN is the creation of Parisian historian-turned-restaurateur and cocktail expert Franck Audoux.

The collaboration between those firms occupies five floors of a typical 17th century Parisian building, reimagined by Belgian designer Ramy Fischler. While there, consumers can experience different ambiances inspired by art, fashion, cinema, or literature across three cocktail bars, as well as a Rizzoli bookstore curated by CRAVAN. The top floors house a private atelier and mini-Parisian kiosk, perched on the building’s rooftop, where movies will be screened on summer nights.

“It is with great pride that we open the doors of CRAVAN, bringing to life Moët Hennessy’s mission: crafting experiences,” said Philippe Schaus, Chairman and CEO of Moët Hennessy. “I am delighted to start welcoming our guests at the heart of historical literary neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, inviting them to step into the unique and singular universe of CRAVAN. Celebrating epicureanism through a sustainable, lasting and inspired approach of hospitality, CRAVAN is a strategic milestone in Moët Hennessy’s ambition to lead the future of luxury wines and spirits.”



She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
