Cocktail Week is coming from Lago di Como to the snow-capped mountains of St. Moritz! It’s a multi-sensory experience developed in a week of events, celebrations, parties and exclusive dinners that will take over the best 15 cocktail bars located in the most exclusive hotels, restaurants and alpine locations of the white pearl of the Engadin. Join us as we experience the first-ever St. Moritz Cocktail Week!
The history of St. Moritz and its iconic institutions is the starting point of all creations. Barmen and women aim to create a real tasting experience through their cocktails while sharing the story behind their mixes. For the first edition of St. Moritz Cocktail Week, the guiding theme is “Postcards from St. Moritz”. Bartenders follow this topic to create their own signature cocktail, served only from 16 - 19 February as a limited edition.
For the founding team around Annalisa Testa, the event is all about “have less, but the best”. Hence, the aim of the festival is to educate people to drink responsibly and seek quality.
The Cocktail Week is kicked-off with a glamorous opening night at the King’s Social House inside the iconic Badrutt’s Palace. Since 1896, the hotel is located in the heart of St. Moritz. Its tower has been the symbol of one of the most beloved ski resorts in the world. In this atmosphere of elite luxury, there is King’s Social House. As Switzerland's oldest nightclub, is has evolved to a neo-bistro concept combining restaurant, bar and nightclub in one venue. Developed by Jason Atherton, the club sports a sophisticated approach to drinks and a lineup of roaming international DJs to keep St. Moritz rocking.
For the opening night, Dirk Hany created a series of unique cocktails with the newly released Belvedere Altitude Edition. This premium vodka was specifically developed to be enjoyed in some of the world's most exclusive ski resorts.
During the opening night, bartenders, industry professionals and cocktail enthusiasts get to mingle and talk about their common passion: mixing world-class drinks! All that in the electric atmosphere of King's Social House with delicious snacks being served and amazing music being played by international DJ and current King's resident Stu Laurie.
After the opening night, the rest of the 15 cocktail bars open their doors to invite guests to enjoy their signature cocktails. One of the participating bars is located a bit outside the town center of St. Moritz inside the Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski. Here, the talented bar team is serving a fruity cocktail with Veuve Clicquot champagne and vodka by Belvedere.
Set in an iconic 1864 building, Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski combines elegant European luxury, meticulous service, and grand event venues in the Swiss Alps. The classy bar of the Grand Hotel is the perfect setting for an evening filled with mixology and friendly conversations. Soft music, some of the finest and unique cocktails, and a menu with International classics and the finest products from the Alps will set the tone for an unforgettable experience.
To elevate the St. Moritz Cocktail Week experience even more, Paradiso is also part of the event. The iconic mountain club is the place to be on St. Moritz' slopes. It can be reached by ski or by foot via the Suvretta Chairlift.
Enjoying cocktails on the sun-drenched terrace is simply a unique experience that is not to be missed. Surrounded by mountain peaks, cocktails somehow just taste better.
Back in the town of St. Moritz, we conclude our tour of mixilogy excellence at Balthazar. The venue symbolizes the beating, warm, friendly and yet informal heart of “la dolce vita” in St Moritz. As a concept restaurant, it cleverly enhances its traditional and genuine cuisine.
Here, food is prepared to the very highest of standards every day and at all hours in the most exclusive and exciting environment. A lot of pop art can be found here. Grabbing a cocktail and roaming around the place filled of wonders is a great way to conclude this first-ever St. Moritz Cocktail Week. We will be back!
