artgenève/apéritifs at Parc des Eaux-Vives

2nd edition of the Aperitifs organised by artgenève on the terrace of the Parc des Eaux-Vives restaurant - Summer 2017

Following the inauguration of the second summer edition of artgenève/sculptures, artgenève has launched a set of aperitifs. They were held on the terrace of the famous 18th century Host House overhanging the Parc des Eaux-Vives. As the place is a perfect location to admire the sculptures set up for the whole summer, artgenève wanted to make this magnificent park alive.

The bar menu, proposed by the Chef Julien Schillaci, had been completed by Thomas Hug’s culinary suggestions, with original tasting mises en bouche, from international Chefs’ gastronomic creations. In all simplicity, as a complement of the menu of local tapas or to accompany the champagne and cocktails, they were served in the relaxed lounge atmosphere of the terrace.

This balance between sophistication and simplicity works as a mantra for artgenève. With its singular concept of salon d’art, artgenève has presented for 6 years international art galleries and complex art projects in a human-size setting, open and pleasant.

To make the visitors’ enjoyment better, artgenève had already invited in 2015 two brilliant, young Swedish Chefs to propose a Nordic fine cuisine menu, unobtainable in the Geneva region. Then, in April 2016, visitors and art lovers had the opportunity to savour the famous Chef Philippe Joannès’ recipes, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2000, as well as having the privilege of meeting the famous Chef Joel Robuchon at the Hotel Métropole Monaco as part of the VIP programme 2017.
