  • The Aviation Club de France (ACF), a mythical place created in 1907 and a prestigious circle of games having organized and hosted the Grand Prix de Paris, the first international poker tournament held outside of the American territory, has unfortunately passed from life to death in 2015 by decision of the Tribunal de grande instance de Paris which pronounced its judicial liquidation. The Barrière Group, already owner of the famous Fouquet's right in front, rented the former premises of the ACF, and obtained on 12 June 2018 from the Ministry of the Interior, the authorisation to install its first Parisian Gaming Club, "the Club Barrière 104 Champs-Élysées" , which is expected to open its doors and 1300 square meters to the public at the beginning of the year 2019.

  • Horrible! I have played poker all over the world and thought this would be a highlight of all those experiences. Firstly, you have to pay a €100 membership fee that only runs the calendar year no matter when you purchase it. Secondly, they collect €20/hr to play 2/4NLH! The action was slightly above average but the play wasn't soft either. It is virtually impossible to get out of this place with your shirt on. Worse yet, non-French people are treated like third class customers and they make up the rules as they go along to favor natives/locals. Unreal! An Aussie was first to act and says "okay" as-in "okay, here's what I'm going to bet ..." (No hand motion at all) and the little beret wearing frenchie quickly checks behind. Aussie challenges this and the floor rules that because there was no person playing after the frenchie that action had ended for that street. Another funny is if you bet out of turn and someone who had yet to act before you then folds, you can take your bet down or change it to higher number! I couldn't believe gravity was holding my seat to the floor when I saw that happen (and confirmed again by a different floor manager and two other dealers.) If you plan on being thirsty while playing, please call at least one day ahead to place your order with the ancient valet, he should be right on time with a piss warm beverage. AVOID!
