The Parisian Eye

My Christmas at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée Paris

Dec 22, 2015 | Parisian Eye
Last year already, I was
there to capture some of the Christmas magic, as it was the first year the
world famous Avenue Montaigne palace celebrated Christmas after its grand reopening, that followed major renovations by celebrated interior designer and architect Bruno Moinard.
Before heading to the
tropics to celebrate Christmas this year (follow it live on my Instagram), I
decided I should reiterate the festive experience at the Hôtel Plaza
Athénée – except a little bit further this time, as I packed my designer bags
and headed for an actual stay at the palace.

The festive
season really is a magical one to be at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, and I couldn’t
have wished for a better time to stay at what is already one of my favorite
places in Paris – for every pleasures from breakfast to afternoon tea, or just
a coffee.

If you are
staying at the hotel, visiting Paris or if you are a Parisian, there are many
ways you can enjoy your little bit of Dorchester Collection magic at the Hôtel
Plaza Athénée, and below are a few options I wish I had… If only I was not under
the tropics 😉

Christmas Eve at the Relais Plaza – Thursday 24 December 2015

The
magic of Christmas begins at the Relais Plaza with a festive menu served in a
musical ambiance and a magnificent Art Deco setting… An ideal atmosphere for
a very “Parisian” Christmas celebration.
Menu at
€290/person excluding drinks and €420/person with food and wine pairing

New Year’s Eve – Thursday 31 December 2015

While you wait for the clock to strike twelve, the festivities continue at the hotel on New Year’s Eve.
At the Alain Ducasse Au Plaza Athénée restaurant, Alain Ducasse and his team welcome their guests to the elegantly hushed ambiance of their restaurant, beneath the 10,000 crystal drops of the chandeliers, for a quietly intimate evening that turns the spotlight on Haute Cuisine.
Degustation menu at €1,200/person excluding drinks and €1,500/person with food and wine pairing. 


The
festivities will go on until the wee hours of the morning at the Plaza Athénée
Bar (table bookings from 11pm. )
