Hilton Lake Como has launched its redesigned flagship rooftop restaurant and bar, Terrazza 241. The new venue marries contemporary design with the property’s natural surroundings, and serves up a brand-new cocktail menu.

The renovated rooftop restaurant and bar leans into the scenery surrounding the hotel, taking full advantage of mountain and lake views with a bright and airy glass house structure that facilitates 360-degree panoramic views. Open throughout the year, the redesigned venue houses sumptuous furnishings including plush sofas and armchairs, as well as a range of foliage across the space.

“We are absolutely thrilled to launch the newly designed Terrazza 241 in perfect time for the spring and summer season,” comments Matthias Welzel, General Manager of the hotel. “We look forward to our guests enjoying the beautiful surroundings and exceptional gastronomic offering.”

As well as a redesigned venue, guests at Hilton Lake Como‘s flagship are now able to enjoy a new sensory cocktail menu, curated in partnership with local artistic perfumers, Acqua del Lario. Available until September 2023, guests will be presented with a selection of expertly-crafted cocktails, each linked to a signature perfume. Four perfumes will be available, all inspired by and named after Como winds.

The cocktails themselves come in multiple variations: four smoked cocktails created with different smoking techniques, four coffee-based cocktails and four mocktails. Amongst a range of choices, guests can opt for the Nova, where the Ventone fragrance is paired with Mountain pine gin, lime, green tea and bergamot orange, denoting a freshness and zest that are accentuated by citrus notes of grapefruit and bergamot.

It gives our guests the opportunity to discover local fragrances paired with delicious and refined cocktails, created by myself and head bartender Ludmila Samohin, in a fun and interactive way.”

The redesigned Terrazza 241 will also offer live music entertainment in the evenings, alongside its new cocktail menu.
