The end of year festivities at the Plaza Athénée

From December to February, the Plaza Athénée brightens up your days and evenings (and provides fun for your little ones) to ensure that the festive season is enchanting and enchanted, with plenty to do! Here’s our calendar of festive events.


It all begins with a skating rink

From December to January, to add just a touch more magic to Christmas the Cour Jardin at the Plaza Athénée will play host to a 100 m² ice rink!
Designed primarily for the hotel’s guests, it gives children a safe environment in which to go skating (watched by an instructor who can even provide tuition!) while their parents enjoy a cake or a hot chocolate in the Galerie des Gobelins!
Wednesdays to Sundays, 3pm to 7pm


That becomes a restaurant in the evening…

From early December to the mid February, the ice rink at the Plaza Athénée will host the « Bancs d’Hiver », a temporary restaurant with all the ambiance of a mountain resort. Guests can partake of mulled wine before being seated at long wooden tables in the most festive of atmosphere to savour the single menu created by Chef Philippe Marc !

Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays – Dress code: Parka, moon boots, gloves and hat!
