About Il Palazzo Experimental

Nestled in the heart of Venice’s Dorsoduro district, Il Palazzo Experimental has been designed by Dorothée
Meilichzon who has transformed a jewelbox renaissance palace into a stylish boutique hotel. With her
renowned contemporary touch, the clean lines of Il Palazzo Experimental’s gathering areas, 32 rooms and
suites overlooking the Canal or the beautiful garden, are rich with hand glazed tiles, custom brass and chrome
lighting, Breccia Capraia marble accents and sumptuous fabrics. Venetian design signatures like marble
terrazzo scarpa flooring, Marmorino walls and somber carved woods join a sun-strewn palette that radiates the
colors of the city: terra cotta, sky blue, pale yellow, silvery grey and cream.
Like all of Experimental Group’s establishments, Il Palazzo Experimental is a crossroads for visitors and locals.
The Palazzo is near to such cultural attractions as the Guggenheim Collection and the Galleria dell’Academia,
but slightly off the main tourist path, with a secret back garden that lets out onto a quiet canal served by the
hotel’s own pontoon.
Il Palazzo Experimental’s façade comprises three entrances on the Canal Della Giudecca: one leading to the
restaurant, one to the reception area and lobby, and one to the bar, signed Experimental Cocktail Club, only the
Group’s third outside of their London and Paris addresses. For the bar’s design, Meilichzon reached out to
Cristina Celestino, one of Italy’s brightest young stars. The Milan-based Celestino got her architecture degree at
the University of Venice, and in the confidential Experimental Cocktail Club Venice, she signs a love letter to the
city with a polyphony of marbles and antique mirrors, inspired by Carlo Scarpa.

The menu in the restaurant will be a reflection of its place and time. Produce is always seasonal and local, with
an emphasis on freshness and elevated simplicity. Though it is one of the arteries of Il Palazzo Experimental’s
ground floor
