ORVM, with a modern and elegant art deco style gives a touch of today to the classical and refined ambience of The Westin Excelsior. Architectonical details and furnishings coming from different parts of the world, meet at the ORVM to create a unique place, where each detail was made with accurate attention.

From the Mexican onyx used for realizing the panels decorating the bar corner to the English lamps that make precious the ambience, from vases made in stone from Lecce in Italy to the South American wood chosen to create the warm parquet enriching the bar was realized: small fragments of distant and different cultures that make ORVM an eclectic and original place, realized by the studio of architecture HDC by Michael Stelea.

The main colour is orange: its shades are in the smallest details, from ashtrays to pillows, and in the imposing chandelier able to provide a warm light to the ambience. The brown and grey tones of the furniture, made by leather and chenille, are a modern interpretation of the spirit and charm of the roaring twenties, punctuated with late Art Déco design elements.

Essentiality of the shapes and attention to concepts of elegance and modernity are also in the paintings decorating the ORVM: the art on display is original, with pieces inspired from Matisse and Ledbedev that make the ORVM a place to live, but also to see.

Cardinale Cocktail

Did you know that the word paparazzo has been created in Rome during La Dolce Vita and soon has entered the international lexicon? On the movie of the same name, the Italian movie Director Federico Fellini created a character called Paparazzo, as an intrusive photographer Marcello Mastroianni who played the role of likeable gossip journalist.

While La Dolce Vita reigned, barman at Excelsior Hotel created the Cardinale Cocktail in 1950. A Cardinal suggested the recipe to his bartender, and the idea was a success with the other clients too, so the bartender christened the cocktail with the name “Cardinale”. In a short time, it arrived overseas and became for all the cocktail of “Dolce Vita”.
