The combination of international ambiance of the Grand Hôtel and the timeless elegance of Ruinart will treat guests to an unforgettable, world-class experience. In addition to a wide range of prestige champagnes, the bar will also serve appetizers specially created to highlight the different champagne characters.
“We are delighted and proud to have the opportunity to realise this exclusive champagne bar together with the Grand Hôtel.
