Logo Quartz bar



In a decor which brings to mind images of rock crystals, the treasures of the Mont Blanc massif, the Quartz Bar, next door to the gastronomic restaurant Albert 1er, offers a chic place for a glass of wine, a cocktail or a cup of tea...





Wine bar

Proposing more than 16 wines by the glass, wine amateurs can discover not only the unknown wines of our alpine regions, but also vintage wines and not forgetting the best selection of Champagne. A large range of cocktails, liqueurs such as the extremely rare 'Chartreuse de Tarragone' and exceptional 'eaux de vie', make the Quartz Bar a privileged place, accessible to all.
For an aperitif, the Albert 1er kitchen proposes a menu of sweet and savoury appetizers : tartines of homemade foie gras, a selection of regional charcuterie and aged cheeses...

Lounge music

The chic and modern compositions of musician, Samir Hodzik will transport you into an atmosphere influenced by Jazz, Classical and International music... inspired by great names such as Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Ella Fitzgerald, Café del Mar and Astor Piazzolla.
In autumn 2008, Samir edited the first CD 'Lounge Hameau Albert 1er, which is now available to buy in the Quartz Bar.

The music is exclusively selected and produced for the Quartzbar and Albert 1er restaurant. It reflects  the ambiance of the Hameau Albert 1er, its warmth and hospitality.
