Don’t Worry Bar
Whatever happened to discreet, old-school hotel bars?
The bar area itself is a jewel case in gold leaf, walnut, brass and precious onyx, sensitively restored and restyled in 2020 by interior designer Annalisa Bellettati. At its centre is a precious antique acquired by Franco Sersale – the walnut-veneer workdesk of an 18th century Neapolitan jeweller, bearing on its intarsio facade personifications of Europe, America, Asia and Africa.
Dedicated to those who have spent a liftetime chasing the ultimate Old Fashioned or the non plus ultra Negroni, the bar’s name pays tribute to a more recent work of art that hangs from the ceiling of the adjacent room: British artist Martin Creed’s neon installation Don’t Worry.
