Enjoying the perfect vantage point from which to gaze over the famed Gothic entry hall of the 14th-century palazzo, Bar Dandolo is nestled amidst marble columns, gold leaf embellishments, and exquisite wooden panels. Yellow damask covered settees and armchairs are set in intimate groupings around marble-topped coffee tables—the perfect spot to enjoy a bracing espresso and brioche in the morning or the gratifying ritual of afternoon tea. A delightful lunch menu of salads, sandwiches and cheese platters is complemented by a wonderful selection of wines by the glass.

In the evening, a lively social atmosphere pervades—live piano music accompanies the crowds of well-heeled Venetians mingling with visitors from all over the world. The curved wooden bar is presided over by the ever-charming Head Barman Riccardo Naccari and his talented team. Renowned for his skill at creating sophisticated cocktails, a visit to the Bar Dandolo would not be complete without sampling the Doge cocktail—a heavenly mix of vodka, strawberry shake, bitter martini, and cranberry juice. Or ask for the special Vesper Martini—gin, vodka, martini dry, and Angostura bitters—created to commemorate the bar featured in a James Bond film. An assortment of savoury appetizers and light meals complement the drinks menu perfectly.

In the historic hall of Palazzo Dandolo, Bar Dandolo is a charming setting with live music in which to while away the hours or enjoy intimate conversations accompanied by classical drinks, cocktails, and informal snacks. An English afternoon tea is served at 4 pm.
