La Goccia Bar

Tucked away behind a linen and dark red velvet curtain, the décor of La Goccia Bar draws inspiration from Petersham Nurseries’ rich horticultural heritage.

The striking centre piece, created by artist Ossanna Visconti, is made entirely from real leaves, dipped in bronze, collected from the gardens and streets of Milan.

With contemporary art adorning the walls, low-slung velvet sofas, red Art Deco chairs, antique mirrored tables, and Middle Eastern patterned rugs, this will be a unique backdrop for any event.

The cocktail list evolves with the seasons and is thoughtfully created using botanicals, herbs and edible flowers.

La Goccia Bar can host up to 60 guests standing.
