Indigo by Martell is located right at the heart of the Martell complex, 24 metres up at the top of the Gâtebourse Tower which houses the Fondation, and offers spectacular views over the rooftops of Cognac, from the historic town centre to the banks of the Charente river.

The vast, open terrace bar has been designed as the perfect place to meet, its convivial atmosphere conducive to sharing a drink en tête-à-tête or relaxing with family and friends. Indigo by Martell is an opportunity for the people of Cognac to view their town from a new perspective, and for visitors from all over the world to discover it in an entirely original way.

Indigo by Martell welcomes its clients with the generosity and authenticity that have characterized the House of Martell since it was founded.

Head Barman Maxime Le Gal and his team have put together an unusual and creative cocktail menu, which naturally features mixology classics alongside imaginatively revisited recipes, such as the bar’s signature Indigo Collins cocktail.

There are also a number of delicious surprises: clients can sample the complete range of exceptional Martell cognacs, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in France, starting with Martell Blue Swift, the first Martell VSOP aged in bourbon casks. In keeping with its convivial ambiance, Indigo by Martell also offers a complete range of punches for sharing created by Maxime Le Gal, from classic recipes with rum to more original options with gin or cognac.

US-born Maxime has a dual cultural heritage – American on his mother’s side, French on his father’s. He has worked in top bars around the world, from London to Melbourne via Paris, where he headed up Little Red Door from 2015 to 2017. His mission: to create convivial moments. His signature: inspired cocktails.
