Visit us and discover our yummy list of cocktails prepared by Jean-Philippe, a passionate mixologist (the art of mixing cocktail).
Mrs. Arlette Schlumpf is a regular customer of the Fritz Bar and a car fan, and her munificence has made it possible for the Grand Hôtel & Spa to enjoy an original setting—and a name paying homage to a visionary manufacturer: Fritz Schlumpf. The thematic decor and its cosy interior set into relief the brand Bugatti.
Between original artistic pictures of racing cars at full speed, miniature reproductions of automobiles and genuine wooden moulds used for the making of engine components, the Fritz Bar plunges our guests into a magical world. Two major surprises contribute to turn the place into an exceptional show: an authentic Bugatti (scale ½) and an Aster dating from 1900 (of which only two copies exist in the world) bestow to the place the particular charm of automobile collections.
Our wine cellar
“Deep in wine, souls reside.” Théodore de Banville.
In our cellar lie world-renowned crus, wines from all over our beautiful French regions, selected over the years with passion, and patience, by Claude Remy and Pierre Gandy, our sommeliers. They will share with you their passion for wine, vineyards, and the magic emotion of rare harmonies.
The wines are delicately and artfully preserved. First, for the white or red Bourgogne, a prominent place is given to great names and prestigious designations: Romanée Conti, Domaine Olivier Leflaive, Latour, Bouchard Père et Fils…
Then, the Bordeaux include naturally the delicious Pétrus (1985, 1996 for example), but also the Châteaux Lynch Bages, or the prestigious Château de Fieuzal Grand cru classé.
Then, among the wines of Alsace, let us mention among others the Domaine Henri Fuchs and its Pinots Gris and Rieslings, or the last-harvested Gewurtztraminer from the Domaine Gustave Lorentz…
This is a true trip through the most beautiful wine-growing estates, an impressive cellar containing 30 000 bottles of more than 600 references!
Should you wish to organize a wine-tasting session, the Grand Hôtel & Spa in Gérardmer offers the opportunity to use its cellar for a private party. Our teams are here to cater for your events: please contact us.
The two sommeliers of the hotel, Pierre and Boris, will be delighted to share with you vintage wines and other nectars distilled in micro-productions or rare surprising wines.
The world of the Grand Hôtel & Spa is one of choice wines and alcohols, with examples ranging from the “Little Siberia” wine (one of the most wanted wines of Roussillon), old ports (having spent as long as 50 years in stock), a cuvee of white « L’Hermitage de la Chapelle », or a selection of home rums. Let us not forget our highly-prized cocktail list!
Please drink in moderation…
