Salle des Commissions

Located right in the heart of Paris, in an exceptional setting for your ceremonies: symposiums, conferences, cocktail receptions, film shoots, etc.



Formerly the official dining room, the Salle des Commissions was decorated in 1904 by Jean-Francis Aubertin with four brightly-coloured panels depicting Estérel (southern France) landscapes entitled “Un verger au bord de la mer” (“An Orchard by the Sea”).

On the mantelpiece is a bronze bust by Paul Landowski honouring the architect behind the reconstruction of the Sorbonne, Henri-Paul Nénot, who won the architecture contest at the age of 24 and supervised the reconstruction work from 1885 to1901.
