PG's Restaurant & Bar
May 11, 2018
Visionary designer Philippe Starck is the man behind the unique look at Palazzina G, combining Venetian opulence with surreal signature pieces, including vast mirrors, extravagant armchairs and incredible chandeliers of Murano glass. The palazzo’s entrance has been transformed into a glamorous all‐in‐one space to mingle, eat and drink, combining lobby,lounge, bar and restaurant in moodily‐lit surroundings of exposed brick, mahogany, velvet and leather, with gorgon‐head lamps and 15th Century pillars propping up the bars. Open for morning cappuccino and pastries right through to an after‐dinner nightcap, it’s a charming place to while a way a few hours by the Grand Canal. During cocktail hour grab a seat at the long, elegant bar and watch the barman knock‐up his signature drink, the Silver Moon Martini, featuring Crystal Head vodka. Or sample that Venetian favourite, the potent Campari‐based Spritz al Bitter. A menu of delicacies from the kitchen, such as ricotta, pecorino and apple‐stuffed courgette flowers, is also available, while classy lounge music plays softly in the background to complete the mood. Upstairs is the exclusive Krug lounge and terrace ‐ the lounge is restricted to members only but the terrace is open to external guests too, from May to October, and offers panoramic views over the rooftops of Venice, along with a selection of Grand Cuvée Champagne, fine whiskies and cognacs.
