Designed by architect Georges Wybo facing the sea, Le Point de Vue is the former clubhouse of the Deauville Yacht Club chaired by Louis Bréguet. Inaugurated in July 1929, it welcomed boat owners until the Second World War. In 1960, Régine, the new queen of Parisian nights, made it the summer branch of her new club, "Le Whiskey à gogo". Then, for fifty years, the building will experience successive uses: disco, gym club, automatic games rooms, headquarters of the Honda Racing Club of Deauville ... before closing its doors to the public and becoming a warehouse of the Barrière group until 2009.
Re-opened to the public in 2010, under the name of "Club 2010", it is the central location for events marking the celebration of 150 years of Deauville. It then rediscovers its receptive vocation with its large picture windows opening onto the sea.
After a major renovation in 2011, the newly named "Point of View" becomes a space for exhibitions, meetings and readings. It is in particular the central place of Planche (s) Contact, the festival of photographic creations of Deauville.
