The French-American Chamber of Commerce invites you to an event that is sure to be one of the highlights of the year: spend an evening in the City of Lights and celebrate everything Paris without leaving DC!

- The Majesty of the Champs-Élysées
- The Allure of the Eiffel Tower
- The Royalty of Versailles

Tonight, we invite you to the City of Lights – without ever boarding a plane! Celebrate Paris on French soil as we invite you to a special evening at the Embassy of France! 

From the elegance of classical French culture to the most celebrated European nightlife of the 21st Century, experience a special evening of fantastic French food (buffet-style) and wines, live French music played by a French band, late night DJ and a nightclub experience that will turn the venue into “The Embassy of Lights”, with a spectacular Parisian ambiance, as well as attractions and shows.

VIP Hour (Versailles tickets): From 6:30p to 7:30p, a VIP hour will allow you to enjoy delicious hors-d'oeuvres and special wines in an open bar setting (open bar ends at 7:30p). 

Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake!" And we will. As if picked from the best cafes and pastry shops in all of Paris, our buffet-style menu offers you a special variety of assortment of French cuisine and patisseries that might be found in some of the finest restaurants, cafes and bakeries in the Capital of France! 

After a special champagne welcome drink, visit our Parisian bar of French wines, beer and non-alcoholic refreshments. 

In the early part of the evening, enjoy the live talents of the French Embassy's own band, 'Reservoir Frogs'. As if you were strolling down the Champs Elysees, the sounds of this live performance will put you into the center of Paris! 

From the City of Lights to the EMBASSY of LIGHTS, we visit the hottest nightclubs from the L ‘Avenue des Champs Elysées as one of Washington's top DJs spins the best American, French, Euro and top 40 dance hits. A spectacular light display will fill the embassy and the dance floor to add that special late night European touch! 

As you may find some beautiful art in Paris, tonight you also become the art! Take home a special free souvenir as a leading local caricaturist draws your picture with a unique background.
