The Team

Johann Burgos, Club Dauphin Director

Johann Burgos

Director, Club Dauphin

From gleaming cities to hidden gems, there is no end to inviting spots for spending time along the French Riviera. Yet, for a real taste of luxury, few measure up to Club Dauphin, the sun-splashed restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from the pool. Keeping people coming back is Johann, who got the idea for Club Spritz when observing guests ordering the iconic Italian cocktail Aperol Spritz. “The secret of a spritz is the bitters,” he says, so the first spritz cocktail began with a birch barrel submerged in the Mediterranean for 24 hours, desalination with fresh water, filling it with home-made bitters, then shaking and turning it daily for two weeks. Finally, the elixir was discarded and the barrel was refilled with new bitters and aged for a full year at Club Dauphin. The vintage 2018 has just been unveiled, and the 2019 vintage is now under preparation.

“It’s all about creating lasting memories and relationships. These days, we’re serving the grandchildren of guests who first came here generations ago.”
