“Great view + Cocktail Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We went to this bar even though we were not staying there. We took the vaporetto across to Guidecca- about 5 minute ride. Walked for about another 7 minuted and entered the beautiful Hilton hotel. Went up to the bar and sat down, slowly taking in the beautiful views. We only had time to have 2 cocktails- quite pricey but very well done. The hotel shuttle brought us back to Zattere for free. It was a great way to end our day. I can imagine that going there for sunset must be even better.

“Very Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This rooftop bar (Skyline Bar) which by, most standards, was fairly expensive has stunning views of the lagoon. Its worth a visit day or night

“If you are in Venice, you gotta do this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Skyline Bar is at the top of the Stucky Molino Hotel which is arguably on the top hotels in Venice. It is across the canal from the main part of Venice but offers free shuttle service from Zattere and S Marco so you just can't beat that. The bar is well appointed with 2 outside patios overlooking Venice. The service is professional, the drinks are excellent as are the canapes that come with them and view is spectacular day or night.

It is not cheap with a Hendrick's extra dry martini tipping the scales at 18 Euro but if you only do Venice once, you need to do this. Skip Harry's bar which in my opinion is a dump, and come here

“pricey, but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

pricey, but tasty. Good service though. You'd be better off walking 5 min to Palanca Restaurant for Lunch (head right out of Hilton)

“Worth the trip to Giudecca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Staying across the water in Dorsoduro, we decided sign off our trip to Venice in style and make the short two minute Vaporetto across to Guidecca just to see what all the fuss was regarding the Hilton’s Skyline bar.

The view from the bar sells itself, but it is also worth mentioning the quality of cocktails, the ambience and chill out music. The service from the bar (and concierge) staff is impeccable and friendly. At around 13-16 euros per cocktail it isn’t cheap but worth it for all of the aforementioned benefits. Try and get in early enough to ensure a high table to ensure the best panoramic views.

We needn’t have worried about staying too late on the island as the Hilton’s own water taxi took us back across the water without any hassle.
