To make each occasion an exceptional moment

The private reception rooms

Ideally located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, in the 8th arrondissement, right in the centre of Paris, Le Clarence provides a perfect setting to receive its guests to savour cuisine created by the teams of Le Clarence, accompanied by fine wines presented on its wine list.  On the third floor of the mansion, three private reception rooms, fully equipped and connected, welcome all types of event.  Business lunches, seminars, press lunches, product launches or private dinners…  Everything is possible thanks to discreet technical installations that offer cutting-edge innovation (flat screen, video-conference, sound system, high-speed Wifi…).

The Antonin Carême private room

The largest of the three private reception rooms, which can receive up to 20 people, was named in honour of the “king of chefs and chef of kings”.  He was the personal chef to Talleyrand and to whom we owe the invention of gastronomy; he asserted that “good food and good wine gladden the heart of the gastronome.”  A belief shared by one and all at Le Clarence.

The Auguste Escoffier private room

The most famous chef of his time, who worked at the Ritz and influenced generations of cooks with his “Culinary Guide”, a real bible of French gastronomy, gave his name to the second private reception room of Le Clarence, which can receive a maximum of 12 people.  

The Seymour Weller private room

It can receive 6 people and bears the name of the first President of the family-owned company.  Nephew of Clarence Dillon, Seymour Weller carried out his profession for 40 years.  He retired in 1975 and it is now his cousin, Joan Dillon – the founder’s granddaughter and mother of the current President, H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxemburg – who succeeds him.  


The wine tastings

Located on the ground floor of the private mansion is the entrance to La Cave du Château, an ideal venue for private tastings and oenological events. A specialist selection of the finest great growths and best spirits from France’s terroirs makes a perfect start before a meal at Le Clarence.
