Gin Tonic and beyond
Where once was the Gauthier Thermal Spa, now only the centuries-old magnolia in the garden and the historic Sofia spring remain. Everything around has been renewed since July 2020, when this relais opened its doors in the heart of the Neapolitan Chiaia district. There are many striking pieces of furniture – like the mosaic walls or the vertical gardens – and the reasons to stop a while in this space are as many. One among them is the lounge bar & Bistrot, open all day and with a selection that satisfies every possible desire. There are over 150 labels with which to create your personal gin tonic, but bar manager Alessandro Scotti’s mixing goes well beyond this classic. The seasonal drink list includes two other sections: more or less known classics like Paloma or Tuxedo, and signatures using homemade preparations from fruit and vegetables from the territory and the garden, which also grows lemons and aromatic herbs. You can also enjoy the cocktails in the evening garden bar and Relais’s restaurants.
