While at the Cannes Film Festival, we experienced amazing drinks. My favorite was the Wiseman Cocktail, served at the (temporary) Silencio on the rooftop of Hotel Five in Cannes. We’ve covered the David Lynch inspired Paris nightclub Club Silencio previously. For the Cannes Film Fest, the Silencio team brought their eclectic design to the Hotel Five, creating an ultra-exclusive hotspot overlooking the French Rivera. Access was invite only (see our card, below) — and we bumped into Jude Law, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. Check out some Pursuitist photos below, including impromptu fireworks, and here’s Wouter Ingwersen of Congac Fans with the recipes for the Rémy Martin Wiseman and Summit Cocktails, created exclusively by the bartenders of Silencio Cannes. Here’s Wouter:
Tuesday evening we went to the Silencio on the rooftop of Hotel Five, specially for the Cannes Film festival this well-known Parisian night-club flew in all personnel to be in Cannes.
We enjoyed some good cocktails and finger food there. The first cocktail was the “Wiseman”, a drink specially made by the bartender of Silencio for Rémy Martin. The second cocktail was the Summit, this cocktail was being created by famous mixologists at The International Cognac Summit. It’s a delightfully refreshing cocktail with fantastic aromatic complexity.
Rémy Martin’s VSOP Matured Cask Finish and smoky Laphraoig Syrup with fresh pineapple and sage, it is smooth and fruity!
