The French-American Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate to its 4th annual La Soirée Champagne! The event will be hosted in the private Residence of the Ambassador of France, Gérard Araud, in his presence. This is the perfect occasion to enjoy a rare opportunity to taste different Champagnes from France's best, while at the same time mingle with the Chamber's Board of Directors as well as Chamber members and friends, high-ranking
diplomats and VIPs.
In addition to the open bar Champagne, there will be an upscale fingerfood cocktail prepared by the Residence's Chef, to pair with the Champagne! The Soirée will also feature live music.
The Residence: From a portrait of Lafayette to a bust of Benjamin Franklin to Empire style couches, neoclassical tapestries and other works of contemporary art, the residence is home to numerous treasures.Some of the residence’s featured works of art came from the collections of the Louvre museum, while others were donated by diplomatic officials or other French ambassadors over the 80 years that the home has belonged to the French government.
