Dogs are only allowed in the ESSBAR and the lobby. We ask for your understanding that dogs are not allowed in other areas of the hotel restaurant (parlours etc.) out of consideration for allergy sufferers. We kindly ask you to observe the leash policy in the entire area so that none of our other two-legged or four-legged guests need to be afraid. Due to the size of the restaurant (there may not be enough space under the tables for some dogs, or it may be too warm/noisy), we can only accommodate a limited number of dogs. Please let us know in advance when booking your table.
