The attention of guests entering the Château is drawn to the imposing bar, which dominates the lobby.
Sculpted, like the reception desk, from a single block of white quartz, it was custom-designed and topped with a glass panel decorated with seven Dahlia motifs.
Dahlias, and flowers in general, are motifs that appear frequently in the work of René Lalique. The flowers, enhanced by touches of black enamel are animated by the play of light in the transparency of the petals.
The crystal elements of the bar, with their contrasting effects of opacity and transparency, pay homage to the master glassmaker. A sumptuous crystal chandelier, designed by the Windfall lighting company, is a dominant element in the composition. The suspended crystals that illuminate the Dahlia panel are a fabulous spectacle. The glass cabinets that surround the bar add a contemporary note, offering guests a view of the wide display of wine decanters and bottles.
À la carte: There is a selection of 80 fine wines from around the world for tasting by the glass. The wines were selected by Romain Iltis, Chef Sommelier of Villa René Lalique – awarded the titles of ‘Meilleur Sommelier de France’ in 2012 and ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ in 2015 – to create perfect matches between dishes and wines in the restaurant and offer the benefit of his rich fund of experience in all things wine in the bar.
The velvet armchairs that grace the salon in subdued colours invite wine lovers to relax in this space where fellowship and sharing are the watchwords.
