Reflecting the eccentric aristocratic character of Fred, patron of the arts and quintessential socialite, the bar introduces a witty, contemporary concept to the historic lakeside setting. Hand-picked, original artworks shape the menu of interactive cocktails and aromatic Aquavits, while Scandi storytelling is evident in the choice of Nordic small plates. Eclectic furnishings and a miscellany of collectables create a stylish and sophisticated backdrop, where intuitive service by the talented team, upholds Fred's genial legacy. 

FRED
Introducing FRED
The family's enfant terrible, Fred followed love to Geneva where his reputation as a dandy and purveyor of the curious bestowed him a certain allure within society. An avid philanthropist, he championed emerging artists, supporting the avant-garde art scene from his favored rendezvous at the original Hotel de la Paix. Legend has it he once declared, "This is the only place where I find peace and indulge in my beloved Scandinavian fare." His presence lingers on through the impressive portrait hanging in the bar.

Imaginative concoctions 
A fusion of cosmopolitan lifestyle and local glamor, FRED is Lake Geneva's must-visit destination bar. Influenced by artwork on display, alongside Norsk lore and Scandinavian heritage, the menu is highly imaginative. Each with a story to tell, eight signature cocktails combine artistry with a fabled narrative, while herb-infused aquavits are served with traditional pipette. Talented mixologists concoct drinks to reflect individual tastes, expertly paired with a selection of Nordic light bites.
