LINDEN bar & lounge
RELAX AND UNWIND IN THE NEW LINDEN BAR & LOUNGE
Have you noticed our majestic, centuries-old linden tree in the centre of our romantic park? Planted for posterity by the founding family of the original Kurhaus, the precursor to the BollAnts, this tree has symbolised peace throughout the years. Today, the lush foliage provides welcome shade on sunny days and the tree is the namesake of our contemporary new bar: the LINDEN bar & lounge.
A SENSE OF HOME ELEGANTLY CURATED
Located in the Villa building, our cosy LINDEN bar & lounge welcomes guests with an elegant sense of home. The Nahe region is reflected in the stunning wooden interior, set off by relaxing, natural colours and comfortable, high-quality leather seating. With many unique elements crafted out of a single ancient tree, and a warm wood floor in keeping with the style of the hotel, the bar has a varied yet cohesive feel. The connection to nature is beautifully resonated by the bespoke fabrics, reflecting the eclectic patterns nature bestows upon each individual tree. Extensive windows offer an uninterrupted view of the picturesque surroundings and provide direct access to the idyllic hotel park with pool and outdoor bar area.
ENJOY SOME YOU-TIME UNDER THE LINDEN TREE
In fine weather, you are invited to linger under the shady boughs of the linden tree for freshly prepared lunches or a refreshing evening sundowner. Relax with the aromatic scents of the surrounding gardens subtly echoed in your glass.
Taking inspiration from the creations of local herbalist, Hildegard von Bingen, our bespoke cocktails offer an innovative twist with flavours uniquely nuanced by fresh herbs and spices from our thriving garden. Gin, rum and whiskey classics are remastered with the addition of aromatic ingredients such as basil, lavender, chilli, lemongrass and thyme.
FIRST-CLASS WINES OF THE REGION
In addition to our comprehensive cocktail menu, we are pleased to offer our guests a vast selection of quality wines and spirits to cater to each individual taste, including vegan options. Our wine by the glass menu includes approximately 30 popular varieties, with many originating from the Nahe region. First-class champagnes and exquisite sparkling wines are complemented by a range of grappa, Armagnac and brandies from local vintners.
The LINDEN bar & lounge is open daily, offering a lunchtime selection of sumptuous à la carte dishes and a delicious 2-course menu, in addition to afternoon tea, coffee & cake. Our focus is on providing fresh, healthy, regional cuisine based on the “farm to table” concept, sourcing quality organic produce from the fertile Nahe countryside.
Eat consciously – Underpinned by the BollAnts’ focus on wellness, our tasty 2-course lunch menu is changed daily and offers healthy and sustainable dishes made from seasonal local and regional ingredients. "Red lentil soup with chilli, lemon oil, freshly chopped herbs, sesame and cumin" and "chicken strips served with brown rice and avocado-parsley cream accompanied by beetroot, diced sweet potato, cucumber and rocket drizzled with a blueberry-walnut sauce” are just some of the culinary creations on offer and fresh SooNahe sourdough bread with homemade herb pesto is served with every meal.
For guests that prefer à la carte cuisine, our menu offers “Bar Food”, “Regional” and “Healthy Food” choices. Lighter options are available for smaller appetites, including fresh salads, healthy bowls, and mouth-watering classics such as tarte flambée or the vintner’s board with local ham and beef tartare.
Our tempting cake bar continues the theme of quality regional delights, serving delectable homemade pastries, including the classic BollAnts warm lemon tart. Artisan coffee is served, courtesy of our close neighbour, Beckelumer Bohnenschmiede, a local coffee roaster.
REGULAR CULINARY EVENTS
The varied LINDEN bar & lounge social calendar includes our regular RED WINE & RED MEAT event, as well as cocktail-making and wine tasting sessions. Hosting a weekly live music evening, the bar is a popular and vibrant gathering place for both hotel guests and local visitors. On Sundays and Mondays, the bar presents a vintner’s WINE & DINE experience, where guests can immerse themselves in the tastes of the Nahe region through a 3-course meal paired with delicious local wines.
