1741 on the terrace

It is the desire of 1741 on the Terrace to engage you and invite you.

Try something new or revisit something familiar but above all — enjoy. Relax in the ambiance of the garden atmosphere of the hotel’s original solarium design with beautiful Moravian tile floor and soaring Palladian windows. Admire the spectacular views of the Moravian National Historic Landmark district with buildings and history dating back to 1741 when the town was founded and named on Christmas Eve.

The wine list – developed to inspire not to impress – is filled with wines from around the world, but with a focus on American wines. As a winner of the wine spectator award for the last 10 years, our wine list  speaks to the quality and the variety of our offerings.

Our award winning farm to table culinary team prides itself in presenting seasonal menus combined with the 1741 classics.
