Le Méridien Etoile, first hotel of the brand created in 1972 by Air France is an emblematic property with its iconic Jazz Club Etoile.



In 1972, Air France created Le Méridien Etoile, located in Paris. The name is a reference to the coordinate lines that span the globe and affirms the brand’s international focus. 50 years later, the hotel is still the flagship of Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts brand with more than 120 hotels all over the world. Conceptualized by a French airline brand in the 1970s, this era served as a real inspiration when developing the modern design identity, always with the “made in France” touch. With its 1025 rooms and suites, 27 meetings and events rooms, a bar and restaurant, a 24hours fitness, a club lounge, an exterior patio and a legendary Jazz Club, Le Méridien Etoile is the largest hotel and conference center in France, unique by its size and history.

This Parisian emblematic property attracts guests from all over the world like Air France wanted to honor in the 70s, but also local Parisians for live concerts. Indeed, the iconic Jazz Club Etoile created in 1975 in the heart of the hotel is a legendary Parisian scene. This real connection between all types of jazz, soul, blues, funk and revisited pop brings to life Parisian nights and offers live music sessions to the delight of amateurs and music lovers alike.

Through key dates from 1975 to 2021, the Jazz Club Etoile has preserved its DNA, intimacy and its well-known connection between musicians and spectators. The music can be listened to, experienced as if it was offered by musicians to their friends, in a warm atmosphere with exceptional sound quality few times a week. This mythical scene has seen artists perform like Oscar Peterson, Monty Alexander, Rhoda Scott, Diana Krall, Big James, Ike Turner, BB King and more recently Laurence Jones, Eric Serra, The Bad Plus, Aubrey Logan, Cotten Feild, Thomas Dutronc, Kad Merad and many other fabulous artists.

The Jazz Club Etoile has known to reinvent itself through the ages and more recently the challenging times. It still continues to shine and bring music to life in the heart of Le Méridien Etoile, the flagship of a worldwide brand.
