The Billiards Room

Signed Edouard VII like most of the surrounding quarter, this room, which is unknown to many – including artists – was Bruno Coquatrix’s official study where he held castings, with Eddie Barclay and Lucien Maurice (boss of Europe 1). It is here that Dalida and many others spent their first auditions, before recording 45 records the next day and appearing on radio airwaves in the following days…Their careers were launched; and at least they didn’t get their lucky break on The Voice.
Today, this legendary hall is used for ultra exclusive cocktail parties, the signing of important contracts or private concerts. Sting loves to compose here, surrounded by a handful of close pals.
