Introducing Salotto by Chic Nonna, a one-of-a-kind venue where Italian heritage embraces Dubai’s cosmopolitan vibes, Salotto is located on the top floor of Chic Nonna, the two-story gourmet osteria located in the heart of DIFC and is an extension of the much-loved brand but a completely different concept.
Designed to resemble an Italian mansion, Salotto offers plush interiors, a decorative faux fireplace, the finest artisan Italian leather couches and armchairs, and a sophisticated DJ booth, setting up its guests in a 70’s style scene that transports and entices.
Intended to be an après-hours watering hole for the upwardly mobile crowd in the DIFC and neighbouring Mohammed Bin Zayed Boulevard, the Salotto lounge also masquerades as a low-key clubbing experience after 12 AM. Guests are invited to mingle and let go at the elegant long bar with signature-green bar stools that mask a hidden, raised stage that will come alive at night. Entertainment will be provided by a talented line-up of live jazz entertainment giving the space a glam New York-style vibe.
Salotto’s brand of mixologists and sommeliers are prepared to serve just the right combination of beverages and concoctions to create the perfect old-school vibe, allowing guests to believe anything can happen. A decadent mixture with an extensive selection of premium and international wine brands housed in a stunning wine cellar, paired with an exclusive cigar lounge where a Cigar Sommelier guides guests on the bespoke cigar, cognac, and whiskey pairings from across the world and it is always a magical night at Salotto.
Guests are also invited to take advantage of the cooler season to unwind and enjoy the outdoor terrace as they revel in the spectacular views of the glittering Burj Khalifa. The ideal blend of timelessness with an authentic Italian ambiance, a “Crudo Bar” offers a sophisticated lounge menu serving a selection of the freshest, raw fish and seafood such as fresh tuna tartar, pristine oysters, European blue lobster, and an Italian Calvisius caviar, in addition to a variety of Italian classics.
A timeless Italian scene and the first of its kind in the region, Salotto welcomes guests to a see-it-to-believe-it immersive experience filled with discovery and more.
