The Rossini Cocktail Bar – located in the historic Kurhaus, a landmark of the town and a listed building – is one of the hottest bars in Merano.

Whilst respecting the original structure and architectural style from around 1900, a new look has been created with an impressive new interpretation of the stylistic features of the past.

In the centre stands a bar clad in brilliant white tiles. Around it are grouped bar stools which were developed by the designer himself and act as a stylistic element with their special combination of leather upholstered seats, aluminium legs and wooden feet.

The lounge area, raised on a wooden floor, has also been furnished using designs by Christian Zanzotti, including armchairs manufactured in aluminium and wood and bronze tables.

Above them, geometrically arranged lights give the dark walls a discreet club feel. The most striking feature is the gleaming gold ceiling which, combined with other gold accents, serves as a reminder of ages past.
