A dear friend suggested that we go to the Hotel Danieli, which is now operated by Marriott. We wished the weather would have been warmer because she said that the rooftop Bar Terrazza Danieli offers such commanding views of the "Serenissima." So instead, we stayed inside and went to the Bar Dandolo. What an incredibly beautiful lounge area located on the ground floor! We were seated amongst marble columns, Murano chandeliers and comfortable chairs. We savored a Pinot Grigio and a Rye Manhattan. They served us chips, olives, and hazelnuts along with our cocktails. This is not an inexpensive place for cocktails, but it is so worth it. It is a very elegant way to enjoy a cocktail. In addition, there was a piano player to enhance our “Happy Hour.” Thank you so much!
