Quantcast

An aperitivo as chic as in Rome

Bulgari

Do some window shopping on the side of Via Condotti . Stop on the terrace for an elegant aperitivo with cocktails and antipasti . Go for a walk at sunset in the streets of Rome , sublime and eternal. A holiday mirage? This is more or less the experience offered in the heart of the Parisian Golden Triangle , 1400 kilometers away. At the corner of Avenue George V and Rue Pierre Charron, the Bulgari Hotel , which opened last December, offers a dream break while waiting for the next vacation in Italy .

An aperitif on the terrace

Service palace, country garden, author's potions: the decor is set. On entering the hotel, turn right and ask for an aperitivo on the terrace . Once at the table, observe this out-of-this-world setting and study the cocktail menu. Leonardo Zanini , maestro of the shaker, signs signature jewels to blush with pleasure: the Americano & Chinato (mixture of Bitter and Vermouth Mancino, house soda with Chinotto and Prosecco mousse), the Milano-Livorno (Campari and Galliano combined with lemon lime, lemon, orgeat syrup and saffron) or the Leo Parisien (floral and fragrant combination of Gin Sabatini, cucumber, elderflower, Moët & Chandon vintage rosé and apple juice).

The cocktails certainly cost €30 (and are quite honestly worth the detour, I say) but, Italian address obliges, they arrive escorted by a nice platter of 5-star antipasti offered: prosciutto, crostini and other pretty bites. To prolong, and because the first drink will be as delicious as it is quickly consumed, we recommend a glass and a reinforcement of plates with an assortment of cheeses (€23), tomato parmesan basil focaccia (€15) and indecent bites of “ frittatin ” of pasta, sorts of mac & cheese couture (€12). Psst: we feel the good idea to impress his date…

Open every day until 1 a.m.
