Organize a graduation ceremony in Paris

Take advantage of an exceptional setting for your graduation ceremony.

The spaces of the Café de l’Homme welcome your graduation ceremony

Graduation marks the culmination of a course of learning in the lives of students. It is a real step to celebrate with dignity the passage to professional life. Moreover, the codes of the graduation ceremony are well known: speeches, sashes, gowns and the throwing of the graduation hat. 

Just like in business schools, engineering schools or medical schools, organize a grand graduation ceremony in an exceptional location. Such an event will contribute to the promotion of your school to the families and potential future students.

It is therefore essential to choose a unique venue, adapted, easy to access and technically equipped for speeches and the setting up of a dinner or cocktail.

Café de l’Homme illuminates your graduation ceremony

Offer your laureates a memorable ceremony combining tradition and prestige at Café de l’Homme. The historic setting of the Palais de Chaillot in the 16th arrondissement of Paris is a true showcase for your event. Its interior, decorated by the architectural duo Gilles & Boissier in the Art Deco style, is flexible and can be adapted to your needs. Moreover, its view of the Eiffel Tower from the terrace will leave a lasting impression on your mind and photographs. 

 By privatizing the Café de l’Homme, 550 m² are available for the success of your high-end event. Spaces in the heart of Paris, where professors, graduates and families will be able to exchange around a dinner or cocktail at your convenience.
