The place to be

In the heart of the hotel on the renowned avenue Montaigne, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has long attracted a fashionable crowd to La Galerie. This determinedly chic space brims with calm elegance, happily passing the day under the gentle melodies of harps and soft conversation.

Bringing modernity to a landmark

Bruno Moinard was entrusted with the careful renovation of La Galerie. Focusing on creating a link between this sophisticated space and the courtyard beyond the window, he blended light and decoration to create the sensation of sunshine playing across the elegant furniture and mosaic floor.
