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

Celebrate in the heart of the Château de Versailles

On the evening of 31 December, Chef Alain Ducasse will take his guests on a gourmet journey with an exclusive dinner fit for the greatest kings. The gastronomic pleasures and recipes of yesteryear will be reimagined for modern tastes and served in a setting reminiscent of the splendour of the Court.

Fancy Dress Party

After this fabulous feast, guests will be 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 will put on their best costume and mask for the evening and celebrate this New Year as the King’s guests.
