Smoking allowed - especially fine cigars. The Renaissance Bar provides a cozy retreat. Many guests use today still the term »Mario's Bar« as a synonym. The former bartender Mario was the one who called the legendary bar game into life. The person whose 5-Franc coin rolls shortest has to pay.
Mario was a pioneer in his field and the inventor of the »San Moritzino«. In the winter of 1972, Andrea Badrutt received a noble rum from South Africa as a gift, but it was not allowed to sell it due to an embargo. Thus it was mixed by Mario with Cointreau and fresh lime, additionally orzata - and finished was the first version of the popular Signature cocktail.
