Co2 Lounge is an upscale theatrical nightspot featuring its own sizzling (literally) DJ booth with unparalleled surround sound and three live entertainment stages, a dramatically lit fashion runway, a unique teatro e galleria that will feature avant garde art and photography exhibits, film screenings and dancing, and elite culinary and beverage creations. A dramatic wall of glass opens onto an intimate outdoor terrazza framed by architectural trellises that double as art displays and 300 glittering overhead festival lights. Co2 Lounge will be the only multi-media, indoor/outdoor social, entertainment, cultural and dining venue of its kind yet in the region. This WiFi hotspot is poised to become “the” after-hours destination to "see and be seen", to imbibe from one of the most extensive mixology menus in the area, and to sample celebrity Chef Francesco Ricchi's award-winning fare.
