1.) Central Ornate Building from 1913

Capacity: 1500 people

Heading away from the historic Arc de Triomphe you’ll reach our first venue proposal, one of the most popular event venues in Paris. The architecture is classic Parisian, and the building is ideally situated in a beautiful garden, not far from the Champs-Elysées. The beautiful interior is chic and classy- sure to impress any visitor. There is also a private terrace with access to the stunning garden, so leave yourself enough time for a stroll outside.

One of the first event and convention centres in Paris is located in the 2nd arrondissement. It was first commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte in the beginning of the 19th century and became the first location of all stock market exchanges in France. Today it’s one of the top event venues in Paris, as it hosts over 400 events each year. The location is also super convenient, as it is located just down the road from the historic Palais Garnier.

3.) Superb Location Within the Louvre

Capacity: 500-4000 depending on the type of event
Neighbourhood: Saint-Germain-L'Auxerrois
Nearby trademarks: Palais-Royal, Notre-Dame, Jardin des Tuileries ...

If you are wondering where to go in Paris, head straight to the historic centre of the city- the 1st arrondissement. Home to the Louvre, the Tuileries Garden, and Les Salles du Carrousel- one of our favourite event venues in Paris. Though it’s most commonly known for fashion shows, it is also one of the greatest venues for art and culture, as it is connected to the Louvre after all. The best part about this massive space is that the underground location makes it a great place to keep cool in the summer heat.
