Get a taste of the high life at Turin’s fu­tur­is­tic rooftop bar of­fer­ing a breath­tak­ing view, min­i­mal­ist dé­cor and sig­na­ture cock­tails

Abreath­tak­ing view, min­i­mal­ist dé­cor and sig­na­ture cock­tails. Lo­cated on the top floor of the In­tesa San­paolo Skyscraper, the new Piano35 lounge-bar is the lat­est sym­bol of con­tem­po­rary Turin de­signed by archis­tar Renzo Pi­ano. Here, vis­i­tors can sam­ple sig­na­ture drinks while en­joy­ing a breath­tak­ing view over the city and its sur­round­ing Alpine range. With its ter­race over­look­ing a bio-cli­matic gar­den, Piano35 is the lofti­est area in the skyscraper and Italy’s high­est cock­tail bar. The lo­cale is helmed by multi-award win­ning mixol­o­gist Mirko Tur­coni who, in ad­di­tion to clas­sic cock­tails, pro­poses a se­lec­tion of his cre­ations in­spired by tra­di­tional Pied­mon­tese in­gre­di­ents. From ‘Piemon­tais– un mai tai che passeg­gia tra le mon­tagne piemon­tesi’ with grappa, ver­mouth in­fused with roasted chest­nuts, or­ange and hazel­nut bar­ley wa­ter to ‘Red-rosso di sera, cioccolato si spera’, com­pris­ing a mix­ture of choco­late with straw­berry-in­fused Cam­pari, vodka and a Bar­bera and bay leaf syrup. Th­ese mar­vels of mixol­ogy are ac­com­pa­nied by a se­lec­tion of de­lec­ta­ble fin­ger foods pre­pared ad hoc by the Piano35 restau­rant, lo­cated two floors be­low. And then, of course, there are those 360-de­gree views of the Mole Antonelliana, Palazzo Reale and the Ju­ven­tus Sta­dium.
