What makes the Baccarat legends even more unbelievable is that they are not in fact legends at all, they are reality. From the Furnace of the Tsar produced specifically for the Russian court, to the Maharaja who tested the strength of his palace ceiling by hanging an elephant before placing a chandelier, the Baccarat manufacture is well known for its ability to create unique experiences—a characteristic also found at the Baccarat Hotel.

INDULGE IN TSAR NICHOLAS TEA

Afternoon tea in the Grand Salon, Baccarat Hotel.

In the Grand Salon, afternoon tea reaches new levels with a Tea Sommelier offering a special pairing of tea by Mariage Freres and culinary delights invented to complement the experience. Introduced first with King Louis XV Tea and Prince of Wales Tea, the journey through the senses is now exploring Russia with the Tsar Nicholas tea, dubbed Best Tea by Bloomberg.

Best described as A Caviar Tea for Two at Tsarskoye Selo, this over-the-top experience starts with an amuse-bouche of sable, kohlrabi, and baby beets. It wouldn’t be Russian inspired without Tsar Imperial Ossetra caviar, from famous French maison Petrossian on tea-infused Blinis. After an Intermezzo of Stoli Kvass Sorbet infused with Rooibos Tea with Macerated Raisins, the dessert can only be Lavender Shortbreads and Earl Grey Caramels served with Lung Ching Imperial Green Tea and Krug Grand Cuvée.

MARVEL AT HERITAGE PIECES

Baccarat Hotel takes its inspiration from the masterful skills of the crystal maker of the manufactures. To celebrate its sources and recognize their work, the hotel displays unique pieces, called “Heritage Pieces,” in the Grand Salon—some of which are available for purchase. For the inaugural year, the Grand Salon had the rare opportunity to serve as the home for two Baccarat Heritage Pieces. The Amphora Vases made their debut at the International Exhibition of Eastern France in 1909 and were on loan from the French Government.

Those have been replaced by two Harcourt Grand Genre Vases. The Harcourt Grand-Genre vase is adorned with the well-known flat cut from the crystal service born in 1841. This exceptional creation is a masterpiece that requires a know-how of excellence and can only be done by a Meilleur Ouvrier de France. The Harcourt Grand-Genre evokes power and majesty with its imposing height.
