Welcome to the
Canvas Bar & Lounge

Enjoy the lively atmosphere of our Hotel Bar and Lounge, with its historic elements, modern design and contemporary art, while we serve you drinks and snacks, as well as home-made cakes, tarts and coffee. Sit back and enjoy the atmosphere. In the evening, not only our DJ but also our bartenders mix classic cocktails and our signature drinks, such as «Dolder Negroni» or the «Grand Espresso Martini» – bar feeling guaranteed.

Grand Espresso Martini

The drink was invented by a London bartender in 1983. The legend says that a young, upcoming supermodel asked the bartender to mix her a cocktail that would waken her up. This popular cocktail icon was reinterpreted by our bar team using a carefully prepared, in-house coffee liqueur and transformed into a gourmet version.
