We are at your service and specific themes can be tailored to meet your needs.
The Café du Palais, operated by La Table de Cana, a company that promotes social integration, is open to the public all year round in the Hall of Honour and on the exterior peristyle. It serves light refreshments.
La Table de Cana is also a catering company and can respond to any requests for the organisation of an event at the Palais de la Porte Dorée (no exclusivity).
From mid-May to mid-October, the Palais welcomes a seasonal terrace, Poisson Lune, on its forecourt. A contemporary open-air café for adults and children, attractions, concerts, workshops and encounters are planned throughout the season, linked to event programming at the Palais.
Both spaces can be reserved for private functions, with or without services.
Film and photo shoots
The Palais de la Porte Dorée is particularly well-suited to film and photo shoots due to its style, volumes, practical advantages and situation.
Its vivid Art Deco features (ironwork, frescoes, mosaics, light fixtures, decorative guardrails) or more contemporary elements will appeal to image professionals.
General terms and conditions
Private events are held in the designated spaces, in both daytime and evening, during opening or closing times, based on a specifications list and in accordance with the site’s programme.
