Celebrating the New Year in Paris

The City of Light has pulled out all the stops with French champagne, fine cuisine and spectacular views to ring in 2020. We open up our little black book for the best restaurants to celebrate the New Year in style.

Georges, the rooftop restaurant of the Centre Pompidou, is serving Paris on a platter with incomparable views of the city. And to accompany the panoramic view with the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the background, guests are invited to sip on champagne and enjoy a dinner of caviar, oysters and foie gras.

Over on the Left Bank, Lapérouse promises a magical evening with chicness only Paris can offer. With its private salons, this is the hottest rendezvous for groups or more intimate gatherings where Krug champagne, lobster and soufflé await to be devoured.

Under the Eiffel Tower, in the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Les Ombres restaurant is soundtracking your evening with a DJ and saxophonist. On the menu? Duck foie gras, oysters and salmon all to be enjoyed with Ruinart champagne.

In Versailles a royal evening awaits courtesy of French chef Alain Ducasse. In the majestic setting of the chateau, the evening begins with a degustation dinner with wine pairings at Ore before the 17th century-themed masked ball sees a soirée of music and festivities begin, with the best mask winning the guest a surprise gift.
