Le Bristol Paris, owned by the Oetker Collection is proud to announce that the iconic palace hotel will be celebrating its 90th birthday this July.After opening its doors in April 1925; Le Bristol Paris has remained at the centre of iconic Parisian style, demonstrating an unquenchable thirst for culture whilst also constantly evolving to remain at the forefront of comfort, service and pleasure, even during its considerable expansions.
Since its opening Le Bristol Paris has known only two owners, the Jammets and the Oetkers, who, since 1978, have shared the same vision of luxury hotels and have sought to make Le Bristol Paris a benchmark in the art of living and French savoir-faire.
From the very beginning, room service was offered to every guest via a dumbwaiter system and a maître d’ was stationed on every floor. The son of a restaurateur, Jammet had an excellent knowledge of fine products and attached great importance to the quality of the cuisine served in the hotel. Le Bristol Paris has since outdone itself in this regard, as the only Parisian hotel with four Michelin stars—three for its gastronomic restaurant, Epicure, and another for the stylish 114 Faubourg brasserie.
Led by Chef Eric Frechon, Le Bristol Paris is proud to include six Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Best Craftsman of France) among the ranks of its culinary team: Chef Eric Frechon and Executive Chef Franck Leroy, Maîtres d’s Frederic Kaiser and Kevin Chambenoit, and Barmen Maxime Hoerth and Alexis Tawfiq.
To celebrate this remarkable milestone Le Bristol Paris will be hosting six grand events between July and October. The six events will be representative of six journeys back in time to reveal the soul of Le Bristol Paris including a brunch, a day of well-being, a Bastille Day Guinguette celebration, an evening cocktail and a gala dinner, all reviving the famous Roaring Twenties spirit from when the hotel was born. All festivities will begin with Le Bristol’s famous Garden Party.
President and General Manager, Didier Le Calvez states “The story of this iconic Hotel is a wonderful and lasting one which has been told with passion since 1925. Nine decades have been spent illustrating the “art de vivre à la française” and gracefully taking the Hotel to the very height of refinement and quality.
“The magnificent building, a masterpiece of the Oetker Collection, is rich due to more than 600 devoted and passionate employees: apprentices, chefs, commis, florists, housekeepers all who are specialists in their field and who put their hearts and souls to continue writing the pages of this wonderful Parisian Palace.”
