Ventiquattro, our place in Italy !

venti1

Finally we are back, officially! A bit drunk (from joy), and totally ready for new adventures! While away, we found the perfect, and our favourite so far, spot in northern Italy for the most exquisite cocktails! Ventiquattro has agreed to be our eternal getaway, for an Old Fashioned, music from their vinyls or just beers from their fridge all packed in a square “living room”, with a fireplace, yes a fireplace, and a homey familiar atmosphere.

Fede and Mattia can both create one of these fleeting moments in life with a cocktail served straight from their secret bar. Being able to feel part of their peaceful sense of intimacy during the golden hour till midnight, it was hard to leave their cosy place without a sense of nostalgia.
