...Hôtel Costes

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, Jane heard some groovy music in a store. This store was in the Charles de Gaulle Airport, heard whilst buying young Cleo a Gameboy (remember those?!) to keep her busy and quiet on their long flight home. Jane was moved to ask the store attendant, "what is this awesome music?", and thus, Jane and Cleo were introduced to the Hôtel Costes CDs. Hôtel Costes is a famous hotel in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, known for its chic atmosphere and trendy clientele. Oblivious to any of this, Jane and Cleo were drawn to the eclectic lounge music CDs, mixed by the Hôtel's resident DJ, Stéphane Pompougnac. Initally starting with Vol.2: La Suite, they have danced their way through many volumes of the Hôtel Costes CDs.

Eventually, Jane and Cleo returned to Paris, nearly a decade after their first discovery, and made it for a visit to the actual Hôtel Costes! True to form, one of their signature CDs was playing in the background, and the decor was equally as groovy. When it came time to order something to eat, as they say, "when in France..." order escargot and champagne! And then come back the next night for more escargot because that was the best darn escargot you've ever had in your life!

And they lived happily ever after...


PS: I looked and you can find all the CDs on iTunes!
