From 10th May 2024, the Albert 1er Restaurant will only be open in the evenings, from Friday to Tuesday.

An exquisite experience to be lived and savaured. Here we are in Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc; the Carrier family invites you to share their alliance with this mountain, which has inspired them since 1903. Chef Damien Leveau takes his inspiration from the region and brings it back to the plate with commitment and identity. The wine cellar accompanies him, bearing witness to 120 years of knowledge and passion for wine. Words cannot do it justice, we suggest you come and experience it.

The QuartzBar

Wine and cocktail bar

QuartzBar

A chic and cosy place

"A chic and friendly place,

inspired by the translucence of ice and rock crystals.

Original and chameleon-like, depending on the time of day, this wine and cocktail bar, frequented by both the guests of the Michelin-starred restaurant to which it offers a pleasant prelude, as well as by the Hameau's guests and Chamonix locals, sets the ambiance at any hour."

"A chic and friendly place, inspired by icy transparencies and rock crystals. Original and chameleon-like, depending on the time of day, this wine and cocktail bar frequented by the guests of the Michelin-starred restaurant, offering a pleasant prelude, as well as by the Hameau's guests and Chamonix locals, sets the ambiance at any hour.

During the aperitif hour, settling into the plush armchairs of QuartzBar, and letting our team of sommeliers guide you in choosing a by-the-glass wine, either from the alpine regions or renowned labels, champagnes from prestigious houses, or even classic cocktails or those inspired by the day. The wine list of the Albert 1er restaurant is also open to you, with 1000 references and just as many emotions and stories to share. For those who prefer non-alcoholic options, cocktails made with fresh fruit juices, tea, and garden herb infusions are also available."

QuartzBar is a place of life and expression for artists who come for residencies for a few days or local artists, a privileged place where you can wander while listening to jazz on the piano, guitar, pop-rock vocals & piano, or classical piano & double bass. The music season starts in December and ends in March, then from June to September, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Program online.

At tea time or hot chocolate time, still prepared in the saucepan as in the old days, the atmosphere changes, and QuartzBar becomes a kind of cozy observatory where you can enjoy homemade pastries and take in a magnificent view of the garden of Hameau Albert 1er. The bar then takes on different hues in natural light and remains astonishing in every season.

In summer, like a bubble of serenity, the shaded gardens of Hameau Albert 1er...

Welcome to QuartzBar!"

 

 

 

 

"An array of cocktails and exceptional wines."

Cocktails are one of the highlights of QuartzBar, especially the 'tailor-made' ones. Crafted from the alcohol of your choice, which sets the initial tone, the sommelier-bartender will create a unique concoction according to your preferences. Among the numerous cocktails on the menu, there's an exclusive selection of creations from the sommeliers who have worked at Albert 1er in recent years. The latest addition is 'Bitter up' by the young head sommelier Youri Greffe. The impressive collection of Chartreuse at QuartzBar will delight enthusiasts of 'the Queen of Liqueurs' with its diverse flavors. A generous menu of classic spirits, of which the bar has a rich selection, doesn't exclude the possibility of enjoying certain white or red wines by the glass or the pleasure of sipping a glass of champagne.
