Santa Maria Signature Bloody Mary

Santa Maria - Signature Bloody Mary

A St. Regis ritual that honors the creation of the Bloody Mary cocktail by famed barman Fernand Petiot in 1934. Bar Manager Facundo Gallegos’s local interpretation of the legendary cocktail, Santa Maria, shakes tradition using innovative techniques and a modern approach: prepared with local grappa and clarified tomatoes, its light distinctive hue is reminiscent of the city’s blushing pastel skies.

Sabrage - Ludwig Negri Head Barman

Evening Ritual

Dating back to the battles of Napoleon Bonaparte, who famously opened champagne with his saber in both victory and defeat, the practice of sabrage has become a signature St. Regis ceremony performed for guests in our Evening Rituals series. It marks the moment of transition from day to evening when lights are dimmed, music is shifted and candles are set out. Every Friday and Saturday between 5.30 pm and 6.00 pm.

St. Regis Bar

A preserve for sensorial relaxation

The Garden

On fine weather days, as winter transitions into spring and nature blossoms, the St. Regis Bar takes its informal culinary and beverage experience outdoors into the Italianate Garden. With its superb views across the Grand Canal, common Myrtle adorned corners dotted with Eden Roses, and coral and cream umbrella-shaded tables, the garden is a dynamic space for locals and guests to mingle. Cultivate downtime inspired by the ballet of activity on the water as you sample our signature Santa Maria Bloody Mary, order from the roaming Spritz trolley, or indulge in Chef Nadia's Spaghetti ai Tre Pomodori.

The Italianate Garden

A specially commissioned mural, Untitled View, 2019, by Italian artists Sara Goldschmied and Eleonora Chiari, is the focal piece of The St. Regis Bar. Displayed on the wall opposite the bar counter, the artwork changes during the day, perfectly reflecting from within Venice's changing colours and outdoor elements, as well as the movements of the barmen and individual observers, making time, space, and observers conscious and inadvertent protagonists of the work itself. The mural is a tribute to both St. Regis tradition and the legacy craft of glass making in Venice.

Santa Maria Signature Bloody Mary

Santa Maria

For connoisseurs of the Bloody Mary, the all-time classic has no peers in the city: Santa Maria, our own signature take on the famed cocktail, celebrates unique ingredients from the Veneto and homages the beautiful domed Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute visible across the water.
