Cercle France-Amériques

The “Comité France Amérique” was founded in 1909 on the initiative of Gabriel Hanotaux, former Minister of Foreign Affairs.

In 1927, the Committee acquired Hotel Le Marois, a beautiful residence built around 1863 in the young Champs Élysées district of the Second Empire.

Today, France-Ameriques vocation is broadening by developing friendly ties between France and all American nations.

France-Amériques is the privileged meeting point for Franco-American elites from the worlds of diplomacy, business, finance, research, defence and culture.

One of the oldest traditions of the Circle is to welcome members of the diplomatic corps. Faithful to its origin, France-Amériques regularly organizes dinners to receive the ambassadors of the American continent, newly accredited to the President of the French Republic.

Member Privileges:

– A private dining room reserved for members and their guests is available every day of the week, except weekends.

– A Lounge and Bar are open to members every day of the week from 9 am to 6 pm.

– A Library, open at fixed times or by appointment, has a collection of more than 3,000 literary or historical works referring to the continent of North and South America. A loan system allows members to borrow these books.

– The rental of lounges: For their private receptions, members benefit from a significant discount on the rental rates of the lounges or the entire private mansion.

BGS strongly thanks the President of France-Amériques, Dr Jean-Luc FOURNIER pertaining to his outstanding support and friendship.
