Provenance:
The Hotel's Le Café de la Paix is one of the famous restaurants in Paris with breathtaking surroundings, where hotel guests can not only enjoy a superb menu of food and wine but also mix with the rich and famous. This is the venue of the fashionable, the place to be seen while in Paris. Bar du Grand Hotel is where guests can enjoy a lively atmosphere over a light lunch and a cool bottle of fine French wine and is also the perfect venue for early evening cocktails or coffee after a night at the Opera. Conveniently located next to the landmark Opera Garnier. The two were in fact designed by the same architect, Charles Garnier, and share the same past grandeur, style and flair. The brainchild of Napoléon III, financed by the Pereire brothers, and the flagship of Haussmann’s gigantic project of urban renovation which gave Paris its present-day appearance, the Grand-Hôtel has been, since its birth, a legend in its own right. Since its inauguration in 1862 by Empress Eugénie, on the occasion of a memorable ball at which the orchestra was conducted by one Jacques Offenbach, the Grand-Hôtel has seen the world’s crowned heads, front-line politicians, financiers, artists, stars of stage ans screen, reputed writers and international celebrities haunt its historic salons or the terrace of its famous Café de la Paix.
