Château Élan Winery & Resort Unveils Marc Bar & Restaurant

USA, Braselton, Georgia. July 01, 2019

As part of its ongoing multi-million dollar renovation, Château Élan Winery & Resort celebrates the opening of Marc Bar & Restaurant, the southern-inspired bar and chophouse, situated within the resort's 16th century-styled château and winery. Designed to complement the resort's vast locale, Marc opens its doors to lush vineyard views and a completely refreshed menu with a special focus on artisanal libations curated by new Winery Chef, Jarad Blanton - who brings more than 20 years of food and beverage experience to Château Élan.

"Known for being one of the most awarded wineries on the east coast, Château Élan has an established history for creating exceptional wine. As we continue to excel in this area, we're pleased to revive the former Marc Bar & Restaurant and invite guests and locals alike to shake things up and go beyond the vine," said Ed Walls, general manager, Château Élan Winery & Resort. "With our modernized design, combined with Chef Blanton's revamped menu and craft beverages, Marc sets the tone for a true destination dining experience."

Marc Bar & Restaurant features a curated list of wine, champagne, beer and an exclusive assortment of inventive cocktails. Featuring fresh sips such as the Bulldog Smash, Marc-hattan, Rhubarb & Strawberry Collins, Summer Cooler, Mexican Martini, St Germaine Sangria and more, those opting for no booze can choose from a selection of hand-crafted mocktails including the Garden Lemonade or Vineyard Refresher.

The cuisine at Marc features hand-selected premium aged steaks and southern-inspired dishes, boasting both small and large plates, as well as desserts, perfect for sharing or savoring alone. Bites include everything from Dry Age Ribeye with Blue Cheese Port Butter and Seared Sea Scallops to Sweet Soy Glazed Mahi Mahi with Avocado Butter, House Made Pappardelle and more.

Conceptualized by the Atlanta-based interior and architectural design firm, BLUR Workshop, the team was tasked to lead the resort's renovation and deliver a distinctly southern design, inspired by the surrounding rolling hills and vineyards. Accessorized with industrial lighting, French oak accents and local artwork, further defining its sense of place, the new rustic ambiance adds a sleek soapstone bar to the back of the existing restaurant, creating a rich yet intimate gathering space. Acting as a decorative entrance, Marc is surrounded by herringbone floors leading into the winery tasting room which added romantic details and enclosed booths, which are almost six feet tall, providing guests with the option to have a more private experience.

Located within the bustling Atlanta metro of Braselton, Château Élan Winery & Resort is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts L.V.X.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
