Pavillon Cambon
The latest venue in the Potel & Chabot stable opens this winter near the Opera Garnier. It boasts a 371-seat auditorium and three meeting rooms. Its piece de resistance, however, is a 700m2 ballroom with a 400m2 mezzanine level that can seat up to 1,000 delegates for a spectacular gala dinner or cocktail reception.

This 17th-century former private mansion in the city centre offers 450m2 over three levels and a courtyard. On the first floor, two reception rooms can accommodate between 45 and 55 people for dinner or a meeting. In the basement, a vaulted stone cellar provides the ideal venue for an evening of dancing or wine-tasting.
