Bottega Campana 1863 (VI)
Giuseppe Campana has innovated the historic family furniture shop, which dates back to 1863, turning it into a cool design concept store that hides a real gem: an “old school” cocktail bar that embodies the sophisticated British style of the 19th-century gentlemen’s clubs. Design lovers will fall in love with Bottega Campana: two floors of fine design pieces with a stunning bar area decorated with original antique furnishings, incredible testimony of its 150 years of history.
Where: in the main square of Marostica, a lovely medieval town near Vicenza and Bassano
When: office time for the interior design store, from 6 pm to 2 am for the cocktail bar
Why: the most beautifully unusual cocktail bar in Veneto (spirits & wines for real connoisseurs) where you can actually buy the design chair you are sitting on!
How: ask for a Bee’s Knees, with Plymouth Gin and honey syrup, based on an original 1930 recipe of the the Ritz Bar in Paris, or a Boulevardie, with Campari, bourbon whisky, rye whisky and vermouth, a mixture that rests in small oak barrels for more than 7 months before being served.
