The beloved 18th century tapestry of Alexander the Great is the focal point of the beloved Alexander’s Bar. With its clubby atmosphere and impressive walk-in cigar humidor, you will want to linger over a classic cocktail, brandy, or exquisite cognac.
There are many reasons why the famous Alexander’s bar was voted the Best Hotel Bar in the world by Forbes magazine, starting with its undeniably warm and relaxing atmosphere. The rare 18th century tapestry of Alexander the Great’s entrance into Gavgamila is a trademark fixture of the hotel---and hangs with pride behind the gleaming wood bar for all to admire.
Take a seat on one of the comfortable leather stools, and permit our team of genuinely friendly bartenders to dazzle you with their exceptional knowledge of popular and obscure drinks from around the world. The staggering selection of premium spirits displayed behind them---many of the bottles exclusive to the Hotel Grande Bretagne---is worth a visit alone.
The equally impressive drinks menu includes such connoisseur choices as Loch Ohu, the only black single malt whiskey in the world, or the superb Russian Standard Platinum Vodka. Be sure to experience a glass of exotic Midori liqueur over ice, since you will not be able to find it anywhere else. If cognac or brandy is your nightcap of choice, the Carlos Primero Grande Reserva brandy and the complete range of Hennesey cognacs, including the rare Paradis and Richard Hennesey labels, never fail to delight with their smooth finish and rich golden colour.
Alexander’s Bar signature mixed drink---the Mandarin Napoleon Select---also deserves consideration for its surprising blend of Dubonnet Rouge, Grand Marnier, gin, and fragrant essential oil of Sicilian tangerines.
Finally, the discerning tobacco aficionado will not be disappointed by a visit to the bar’s specially designed walk-in humidor, where a superb collection of the world’s finest cigars awaits.
