A summer of art, culture and culinary delights at the Hôtel Hermitage

Hôtel Hermitage

The timeless Belle Epoque beauty that is Monaco’s Hôtel Hermitage will this summer host a series of elegant and refined cultural events set to blend musical and artistic prowess with culinary talent. Here are some of the highlights of the programme.  

It all begins on 9th July, with the inauguration of the latest Yannick Alléno masterstroke: L’Abysse. The Michelin-starred chef will be collaborating with a sushi master, Chef Yasunari Okazaki, at the new venture, which will honour the finest sustainably-caught produce of the deep.

A pair of Art & Gastronomy Nights are up next, on 26th July and 2nd August. Held at Pavyllon Monte-Carlo, another Yannick Alléno triumph, guests will be served a gourmet dinner ahead of a nocturnal tour of the Grimaldi Forum’s big summer exhibit, Turner: The Sublime Legacy, delivered by an expert guide. The cost is €470 per person, which includes transfers between the venues.  

Shifting gears slightly, Pavyllon will be hosting a series of Music & Gastronomy Nights on 11th, 18th, 26th and 28th July and 1st, 4th and 8th August. Dinner will be served before guests are whisked up to the Rock to enjoy music under the stars at the al fresco Concerts at the Prince’s Palace. This experience will cost €370 per person, including transport.

It is all about art between 20th July and 20th September, when the hotel will become home to the 1,001 Lives of an Artist: Jean Boghossian exhibit, which will feature an ‘artistic trail’ around the hotel, allowing visitors to discover the works of Boghossian in the Couloir des Princes. Access is free and open to all.  

Rounding out the summer, on 14th and 15th September, the Hôtel Hermitage will host Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer’s Festival des Etoilés. Alléno will welcome two-starred Chef Richard Lee of Saison in San Francisco at Pavyllon for two exceptional dinners created in symbiosis by the culinary maestros. The six-course meal will cost €650 per person, including wine pairings.
