New Year Celebrations

The Celebrations

For guests looking for an exceptional experience, Le Grand Contrôle offers, every year, the chance to see in the New Year at the Château de Versailles. Over two nights, celebrate the New Year the way did at Court in times gone by. Our team takes care of every detail to make these two nights an unforgettable experience, with a festive dinner and costume party on the New Year’s Eve and a Royal Brunch on New Year’s Day.

Treat yourself to an extraordinary break - dine, celebrate and enjoy exclusive access to the Alain Ducasse restaurant and the Bar de la Chapelle.

Dinner at Le Festin du Roy - December 31st, 2021

On the evening of 31 December, Chef Alain Ducasse took his guests on a gourmet journey with an exclusive dinner fit for the greatest kings. The gastronomic pleasures and recipes of yesteryear have been reimagined for modern tastes and served in a setting reminiscent of the splendour of the Court. The guests enjoyed refined cuisine in astonishing surroundings, presented on refined tableware from Alain Ducasse’s private collection. A theatrical feast reminiscent of the King’s decadent royal parties!

Fancy Dress Party

After this fabulous feast, guests were invited to head to the Bar de la Chapelle for a fancy dress party as it would have been in the time of the Court. They have put on their best costume and mask for the evening and celebrated this New Year as the King’s guests.

With a festive musical atmosphere, this costume party has been full of fun and laughter. As well as bubbles and cocktails, they tried the Royal Flocon, champagne poured over a seasonal scented granita at this timeless and exceptional party.

The Royal Brunch - January 1st, 2022

To get the year off to a great start, Le Grand Contrôle invited its guests to Alain Ducasse’s New Year’s Day Brunch. As they would have done in the time of the King, they enjoyed gourmet French classics and seasonal dishes served directly to your table. The Brunch was a sociable, friendly event rounded off with an irresistible dessert buffet.

A new edition of these festivities will take place at the end of 2022.
