Va Bene Cicchetti channels Venice to Warsaw

Venice canals abound through Va Bene Cicchetti, a new cocktail bar in Warsaw, Poland. Housed in a sprawling 1950s socialist realist housing estate, the concept was designed by local architects Noke to immerse guests in a tribute to the city of water.

“Venice is a temple of art, both contemporary and Renaissance. We wanted to create a space for dialogue and the exchange of ideas, a meeting point for the worlds of architecture, culture and art,” explains Piotr Maciaszek, Noke partner and architect. “You couldn’t wish for more in this cozy corner of the old socialist buildings next to a beautiful relief.”

An archway covered in antique mirrors announces guests to a dark red travertine bar whose facade is hollowed out to accommodate beverage coolers. Hints of red and color nod to the Venetian flag, while inviting seafoam hues adorn the floor, plinth tiles and seat bases to channel the city’s floodwaters. Custom lamps made of handcrafted glass illuminate designer furniture, including a table shaped to resemble Venetian posts emerging from the canals.

Black and white stripes distinguish the bathrooms with a nod to gondolier uniforms under the red ceilings. Featuring a range of diverse shapes, colors and textures, Va Bene Cicchetti also uses subtle mosaic as one of its main focal points, radiating the palette’s signature red and green hues. The Lion of Venice is another design muse, appearing as a logotype in the artistic neon signage of large brass doorknobs.
