Cast a spell on traditional cocktail menus to create a new voodoo spirit imprinted object was the challenge of the Be Dandy agency.



Baton Rouge is a bar in Pigalle (Paris) which offers some of the best cocktails in the world. Born in Louisiana, the cocktail science became an art for Joseph Biolatto and Julien Escot who got inspired by their motherland to create this new destination that bewitches you. Transforming the classic cocktail menu into a voodoo object was a duty.



This isn’t a menu it’s a tarot. With its share of magic. From a manufacturing point of view, its unusual width was not feasible in traditional printing. We developed a system to make the card infinite, perpetual.
In addition, each cocktail line took shape in a voodoo divinatory tarot character. Thus, the customer chooses more his experience, the desired atmosphere than the ingredients of a recipe.  Among the benefits, thanks to Tales of The Cocktail, the world’s largest trade show for mixology, for qualifying the menu as “The most beautiful cocktail menus we’ve ever seen.”
