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.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
