The bar and lounge were the heart of an ambassador’s home where family and guests we regaled with endless stories of travels and parties while drinking and eating with the warm glow of the chimney. At the Maison des Ambassadeurs we have recreated this ambiance with inviting sitting areas designed around a central bar and the historic grand chimney.
The mid-century modern decoration is highlighted with curiosities collected from across the globe that tell the story of Ambassador Bodard and his adventures from the New World to the Far East. Locals and travelers meet in a festive and inviting atmosphere, as if friends stopped by for tea in the afternoon or an evening refreshment.
A selection of local wines and foods celebrate both the La Rochelle heritage of the Maison des Ambassadeurs as well as international favorites we cannot live without. A choice selection of seasonal cocktails are inspired from the four corners of the globe and the newest in non-alcoholic cocktails make the bar a place for everyone to enjoy.
A refined food menu is available throughout the day and night culminating the best in local favorites from oysters to patés, cheeses and sweets with plates designed for one or many to share.
