CDP is our brandy and sparkling wine focused cocktail lounge next door.

The bar program celebrates the diverse variety of spirits distilled from fruit which qualifies them in the wonderful category of brandy. We have an extensive collection of single vintage Armagnac and Calvados as well as non-vintage blends of pisco, grappa, kirsch and eau de vie that are mixed into most of our specialty cocktails, or that can be enjoyed simply over ice or in a snifter. Our sparkling wine selection will highlight Champagne but also includes premium California sparkling wines Cava, Sekt and Prosecco. In addition, we offer our favorite spirits beyond the world of brandy. The Commis wine list is available in the lounge.

We apologize we will not be serving the Commis prix fixe menu in the lounge, but we will have a special lounge menu to accompany our bar program.

We do not reserve tables or bar seats at CDP.
