Based on the materials used in the design of the Riva Yacht, the look and feel of the 36-seat, 55-square-meter Riva Lounge on the Gritti Palace’s iconic terrace reflects the Riva Aquarama Lounge at the Monaco Yacht Club. Inspired by timeless style, the Riva Lounge recalls the elegant decks of the Italian yachts from the 1960s, with such details as polished wood and shiny stainless steel.

Its unique materials and design are accompanied by its charming location on the Grand Canal, with sweeping views from Santa Maria della Salute church to Punta della Dogana. The Riva Lounge is one of the most glamourous meeting places in Venice for an aperitif as the sun goes down or a late-evening cocktail.
