Lounges in Venice are like the rest of Venice. No, not slowly sinking into the ocean! Mellow and romantic! This beautiful little town is far from a hopping party, but Italians are certainly adept at relaxing and enjoying the always resplendent Venetian views, and what better place to do it than tucked inside a cozy lounge watching the world amble by?
Of course, no matter where your destination when venturing out into Venice’s nightlife, it always begins with l’ora dell’aperitivo, a signature event in Italy’s social scene that’s basically an excuse to eat finger food, talk, and drink too much wine (God bless, you Italy. God bless you).
Those enamored with the mellow atmosphere that comes with aperitivo can hold onto that vibe for the rest of the night, either perched on the glorious rooftop of the Hilton Molino Stucky Hotel – where the Skyline Bar certainly lives up to its name – or deep inside the Venice Jazz Club, an intimate music venue with an artsy, almost underground vibe.
Many other Venice lounges exist over the bridge in Mestre and over the water in Lido, where venues from swanky to totally unpretentious are often on the same block. Of course, the ideal way to lounge in Venice would be to grab a boat and amble down some small canal. Think of it as a DIY lounge. Then stop thinking and have another glass of wine.
