Original artwork by leading contemporary artists graces AQ Bar
August 24, 2018 – Acqualina Resort & Spa announces the opening of AQ Bar, adjoining the AQ Chop House by Il Mulino restaurant. Inspired by the smooth and sultry era of the Parisian jazz movement, the stylish interiors stimulate creativity and intellectual conversations while guests sip hand-crafted cocktails and play chess or backgammon on custom art-inspired game sets. Brass finishes, an antique mirror and midcentury modern furniture create an eclectic vibe. An oversized custom mural on an architectural wall draws guests into the space, while rotating wall panels offer a peek inside AQ Chop House by Il Mulino. This specially made mural is designed on textural wallpaper and enriched with deep purples and warm blues.
