Le Link, the terrace bar at the Sofitel Strasbourg Grande Ile:
A new location for the winter season.

To extend the magic of the holiday season, the Sofitel Strasbourg Grande Ile is inviting guests and locals to come and discover the hotel’s new terrace bar, Le Link.  Nestled in the heart of the Grande Ile, just a short walk from the famous Place Kléber, the terrace enjoys a prime location. New menus, uniforms and furniture – nothing has been left to chance in making this bar a must-visit to enjoy a special experience.  The heated terrace provides a wonderful setting, blending lush vegetation with designer furniture.  In a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Le Link lets guests experience winter in the warmth, snuggled in easy chairs adorned with cushions and plaids. The bar offers a selection of main courses and desserts prepared using local produce, echoing the recent opening of the restaurant “Terroir & Co”, as well as a wide range of colorful and sophisticated cocktails. 
Every Thursday, the terrace organizes a “Champagne Happy Hour” with a DJ, giving customers the opportunity to mix with friends and colleagues and enjoy socializing together.

Opening of Chalet Molitor x Veuve Clicquot:
Champagne and raclette on the menu!

This winter, the Hotel Molitor MGallery by Sofitel is taking anyone who will not have the chance to go skiing to the top of the slopes, thanks to the Chalet Molitor. In partnership with Veuve Clicquot, the Chalet is decorated as a ski station, with a welcoming design evocative of mountain chalets: wood, cozy easy chairs covered with soft plaids, and picnic tables where guests can sit and enjoy some time together. The space also boasts a chairlift with the snow-clad mountains as a backdrop, an elegant setting for a life-like experience.  Also on offer is a selection of cuisine. Every Thursday is the chance to enjoy raclette, with a menu composed of the Chef’s raclette and a Veuve Clicquot signature cocktail using Rich or Rich Rosé champagne. Every evening, the hotels’ mixology experts are at the Chalet Molitor, creating drinks based on the brand’s champagne, all accompanied by a selection of tapas.
