The cocktail and fair will take place in Hotel Ambassador Opéra and staying at this hotel makes it very comfortable visiting the fair and the auction rooms of Drouot.
The hotel Ambassador is offering a rare combination of charm and character from French tradition, with modern facilities and great comfort.
Originally built in 1927, the hotel was the vision of the influential architect Baron Haussmann who was commissioned to reshape Paris' streets and architecture. The property has an illustrious past as host to royalty, politicians and visiting heads of state along with important historical figures such as Charles Lindbergh and Gustave Eiffel. The Hotel Ambassador stands nearly on top of the site of the Hotel Tetebout where Thomas Jefferson, his daughter, Martha, and his slave, James Hemings, spent most of their first year in Paris.   It was at the Hotel Ambassador that Charles Lindbergh was feted after he made the first solo flight across the Atlantic from a rainy airstrip on Long Island to Paris in 1927.
