Join us for the annual Dîner des Mécènes / Paris Gala that will be held this spring at the recently restored Hôtel Lutetia on the Left Bank. Dinner Co-Chairmen Valérie de Condé, Sarah de Lencquesaing and Cassandra Surer invite you to discover this Art Nouveau treasure and its acclaimed gastronomy for an evening in celebration of the French art de vivre.
The Lutetia was built in 1910 in the Art Nouveau style from designs by architects Louis-Charles Boileau and Henri Tauzin. It was founded by the Bon Marché department store, which sits opposite it facing Square Boucicaut. Renowned French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s masterful $234 million dollar restoration has brought the most elegant hotel on the left-bank back to its former splendor.
Your participation in this evening also helps support FHS’ mission to preserve the French architectural heritage in France and the U.S., transmit skills and knowledge in the field of culture and heritage preservation to train tomorrow’s leaders and to promote the French cultural heritage.
An invitation with further details will be sent in the coming weeks.
