Meet the new Cognac Room at Restaurant Guy Savoy, a place where diners can find some respite next to the fireplace and sip on $700 pours of Hine Talent. The bar takes over the former Bubbles Lounge, but fret not; pricey champagnes still find a home behind the bar. Now though they're nestled next to 33 cognacs collected over the years.
Phil Park, the sommelier at this Caesars Palace outpost for Savoy, says the selection behind the bar will continually change. After all, once the Hardy Perfection at $600 for one ounce is gone, they can't acquire another bottle of the sold-out, unblended 140-year-old cognac.
Other pricey sips include a two-ounce pour of Martell L'Or de Jean Martell for $700, Rémy Martin Louis XIII for $500 and Hennessy Ellipse at $450 for a one-ounce pour.
Park can share the stories behind the bottles, including the pen-etched Baccarat crystal vessel from Hine Talent bottled in 1990 to celebrate the bicentennial of the family's arrival in France. Or the Hennesy Ellipse and how it represents a blend of the seven master blenders from 1820 to 1992.
Best of all, when guests finish a bottle, they can take it home with them.
