A venue much-loved by artists and musicians for its atmosphere and bohemian style. With its retro vibe, the Hotel Metropole’s Orientalbar & Bistrot is the perfect setting for enjoying an artfully prepared elegant drink, perhaps paired with characterful dishes inspired by Venice and the Orient.
The ambiance is adorned with Fortuny lamps, ancient 19th century armour and soft, welcoming sofas in deep red velvet. The interior also includes site-specific artwork by the artist Joseph Kosuth.
