Stylish entertainment in the Schlossbar with a view of the lake.
The bar in Hotel Schloss Seefels is classic and tasteful. It is located in the historic part of the hotel, the polygonal tower - a gem of Wörthersee architecture. Walnut wood, marble, chandeliers, mirrors, and gold leaf embellishments stylishly harmonise with the designer colours of bordeaux and ochre. The small bay window with a view of the lake invites you to enjoy intimate conversations. Or if you prefer the spotlight, you can sit at the oval bar and in summer on the terrace with the stylish lounge furniture and gorgeous view.
Over 400 bottles adorn the shelfs and over 100 drinks make the bar menu an encyclopaedia of bar drinks. The selection of Whisky/whiskey and gin is impressive. Fans of grain distillates can choose from more than 60 varieties of bourbon, scotch, and Irish whiskey. One special feature is the 25-year old Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Or would you prefer gin and Monkey 47 made from 47 plant ingredients in its unmistakable brown apothecary bottle with the monkey on the label in the form of a stamp? Voilà. Cheers!
The most popular cocktails
For 17 years, Christoph Turian has been enthusiastically shaking, stirring, and mixing cocktails at the Seefels. He loves his job at the Schlossbar. "It is a great honour to work with such high-quality and exclusive ingredients", says the amiable bartender. When asked what the most popular cocktails are, he mentions the Bellini, Fraisini, and Testarossa for women and martini cocktails such as the bottle-aged Negroni for men. The current trend leans towards lighter alcoholic drinks such as the Sea Breeze.
It’s teatime at Schloss Seefels
The wonderful tiled stove in a Neo-Renaissance style radiates cosy warmth. Tea by the renowned Ronnefeld brand warms you from within. Up to 30 tea varieties are available on the tea menu. This hot drink is served in the Schlossbar in a cast-iron Ronnefeld pot with 5 types of sugar. How about a piece of cake or pie from the Seefels patisserie? Or something off the menu like a club sandwich, carpaccio of Lavanttal Wagyu beef, tarte flambée, and other small treats?
Live music in the Schlossbar
In summer, Diego Piotto plays live with his guitar every Friday at 9 pm in the Schlossbar. Diego Piotto was born in Padua and has Italian music in his blood. As the guitarist of Franco Andolfo, he has played in the finest night clubs all over the world. The grand piano in the bar entices many guests to put on spontaneous performances in the bar. The most famous was undoubtedly Udo Jürgens. As a guest at the hotel, he would end his evening in the Schlossbar by sitting down at the piano and playing. In fact, the Tower suite is named after him.
"My family started taking me here in the 1960s. Have visited numerous times but only between June and September [high season] but never a zoo of tourists. Five star service, cuisine and old fashioned Austrian Gemuetlichkeit. Romantic, quiet and lots of water sports and hiking around the Alps. Visiting for sure in September when things quiet down."DoubleDee2020, March 2019 • Tripadvisor
